Loving the skin you’re in

What’s it like to live with a condition or injury that affects your appearance?

If you are between 5 and 12 years old and have a condition, injury, or have had treatment that affects your face, skin or part of your body such as:

  • Burns
  • Dog bites
  • Surgical scarring
  • Skin conditions
  • Cleft or craniofacial condition
  • Vascular malformation
  • Neurofibromatosis
  • Birthmark/s
  • Other appearance-altering conditions or injuries

We want to hear from you about what it’s like to live in your skin.

How you can help

By taking part in our study, you will need to:

  1. Take photos of ANYTHING that shows how you feel about how you look. We want you to show us good parts AND the not so good parts.
  2. Sit down with one of our friendly researchers and tell us about the photos you took, why you took them, and how they make you feel.

If you would like to be involved or have any questions about our study, please contact our head researcher, Caroline Gee: c.gee@uq.edu.au or 07) 3069 7393.
