Signs & symptoms

Skin conditions have a wide range of symptoms. Symptoms on your skin that appear due to common problems aren’t always the result of a skin disorder. Such symptoms can include blisters from new shoes or chafing from tight pants.
However, skin problems with no obvious cause may indicate the presence of a skin disorder that requires treatment.
Skin irregularities that are typically symptoms of a skin disorder include:
* raised bumps that are red or white
* a rash, which might be painful or itchy
* scaly or rough skin
* peeling skin
* ulcers
* open sores or lesions
* dry, cracked skin
* discolored patches of skin
* fleshy bumps, warts, or other skin growths
* changes in mole color or size
* a loss of skin pigment
* excessive flushing


A patient should go to a dermatologist in order to undergo a complete physical examination and possibly take a biopsy from the skin lesion for further diagnosis


Many skin disorders are treatable. Common treatment methods for skin conditions include:
* antihistamines
* medicated creams and ointments
* antibiotics
* vitamin or steroid injections
* laser therapy
* targeted prescription medications
* biologics
