Dermatological Symptoms that Merit Investigation

Woman Being Seen By A Dermatologist for Medical Conditions Atlanta GA

Are you the type of person who ignores unexplained skin blemishes? There are several symptoms of dermatological conditions that may not itch, hurt or otherwise cause discomfort. This does not mean that those symptoms are harmless and should be ignored.

Many dermatological conditions initially present with mild or occasional symptoms. If you want to take care of your skin, it is important to look out for the telltale signs of allergies, disease and other potential problems.

Raised Bumps

Acne, ingrown hairs, skin tags and other relatively harmless conditions result in raised bumps on the skin. However, skin cancer also presents in the same way; so, it is important to seek a swift and accurate diagnosis if the problem persists.

Skin Rash

Skin rash can result due to allergies, irritation, infection, immune system disorders or as a medication side effect. More serious issues, including ringworm, shingles and meningitis, will not go away without treatment.

Dry or Cracked Skin

Atopic dermatitis (eczema) can develop in people who suffer from dry or cracked skin. This is not a condition that you should ignore. Early intervention through treatment from a dermatologist can help you avoid dealing with a more advanced medical condition.

Open Sores, Skin Lesions & Ulcers

Sores should heal within a week or two, depending on the size of the affected area. However, when open sores, skin lesions or ulcers develop out of nowhere, there is likely an underlying health issue at play. To determine the cause of these dermatological conditions, consult with Medical Dermatology Specialists in Atlanta, GA.

Discolored Skin Patches

Melanin levels, illness, injury and inflammatory problems will lead to skin discoloration in certain areas of the body. If you frequently notice differences in skin color on patches of your body, seeking answers from an experienced dermatologist is recommended. There are a large number of potential causes for skin anomalies. An accurate diagnosis will lead to an effective treatment plan.
