Skin conditions can be an annoyance and can dent your self-condition. But sometimes, the danger runs deeper. Certain skin conditions are not to be trifled with. Your skin is the largest and most vulnerable organ of your body. It is exposed to multiple threats and prone to different infections and conditions. So it is very important to be mindful of its health. Let us take a look at certain skin conditions you should not try to hide and ignore.Skin discolourationIf you see patches of skin that are of uneven tone, then you should seek advice from a dermatologist. Suppose parts of your skin have taken on a yellow tinge, it could indicate a problem with your liver function. If you have diabetes and you notice a bronze hue, it could mean that your body is unable to utilize iron. So anything out of the ordinary when comes to your skin tone should be reported.Adult acneAcne can be the bane of anyone's’ existence. It is particularly prevalent during our adolescent years. It is even normal to have a few pimples now and then when we are full-grown adults. But if acne persists all year round when you are an adult, it could be because of hormonal imbalance or Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome- something you should not ignore.The Malar rashMalar rash or butterfly rash originates at the nose and expands across the cheeks resembling a butterfly. Malar rash can be harmless and seasonal, but it could also result from grave illnesses like Lupus, bloom syndrome, or Lyme disease. So it’s best to get the rash checked out.PsoriasisThis is a stubborn skin disorder that keeps coming back. Your body is unable to remove old skin cells and new ones develop on top of the old ones to cause welt-like patches. If you notice these symptoms, you should seek a doctor’s help because psoriasis is an autoimmune disease and can even trigger type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular problems.Lacerations and abrasionsNobody is immune to lacerations or abrasions. We all trip and fall, or bump our arms against a rough surface, scrape our skin or develop cuts or tear our skin when we are in an accident. Usually, minor lacerations and abrasions go away quickly enough. But there is a possibility of infections setting in. so always apply antiseptic lotion to your abrasion and laceration. Slap on band-aids but remember to peel them off at the end of the day because water, dirt, and sweat can infect the wound. Speak to a doctor and apply topical medicinal creams or powders. Take an anti-tetanus shot. If your wound keeps seeping blood or other fluids for more than a day, get the wound examined.  Unusual blistersIf your skin shows blisters for no good reason, it could be a sign of pemphigoid disorder. This is another autoimmune disorder that makes your immunity attack healthy skin cells. Autoimmune diseases can be dangerous, so ut’s best to speak with a doctor when you see inexplicable blisters anywhere on your skin.If you are worried about a strange new development on your skin, you should consult a doctor through MediBuddy’s E-consultancy devices who can guide you about what to do and how to proceed.
