While they don’t take the place of a skin exam by a board-certified dermatologist, regular self-skin checks are important. Stand in front of a mirror and check every part of your body, making sure to check your scalp, ears, toes, and soles of your feet. Look for lesions/moles that aren’t healing, are changing in size, shape or color, or are new. Take pictures of any spots and track them from month to month. Contact a doctor or free clinic regarding any suspicious spots, lesions, or moles.
