Anemia Pale Skin
I have pale skin face knowing that I don't have anemia What could be the problem and how to solve it?
Be glad: Whwn there is no serious disfigurement, something that gets comments, it is usually best not to try to change your natural features or complexion. I gather that you are light completed and do not tan. Many people consider this a plus. Talk to a few friends and if they agree, just decide this is who you are. Take good care of your health and stay fit and you will look wonderful.
Yes: These symptoms could certainly be seen in someone who has anemia. These symptoms are very concerning. I would advise that you go to the nearest ER for evaluation of these symptoms. I would also advise that since you are lightheaded, that you have someone drive you to the ER now.
Autoimmune, anemia, Cbc, thyroid, hida, ct scan is all normal but I'm still having dry hair thinning, pale loose stools, neck pain, fatigue, pale skin, help!
I'm having dry hair that's thinning, pale, loose stools, fatigue, knee pain, pale skin, hida, ct, ultrasound, thyroid, autoimmune, anemia, cbc all good?
Multiple causes: Thyroid problem, anemia (iron def), and autoimmune diseases (such as Lupus) as well as stress can cause hair loss. I am confused about your statement re. Thyroid. -> anemia with CBC "all good". & presumed these have all been ruled out. With the loose stool issue, one may consider an malabsorption condition and gluten intolerance should be considered. See dermatologist.
Can having a low htc (but not low enough to be anemic) still cause some of the symptoms of anemia? (ex. Tiredness, paleness, coldness of fingers/toes)
No: Look for one of the many causes of your symptoms.

Depends on cause: There are many causes of anemia. You need to know why before treating. Sometimes it is diet related (iron deficiency), other times it is can be caused by chronic inflammation, auto-antibodies, or diseases in the bone marrow. If it is iron related, eating red meat and green leafy vegetables can help. But first, you need to know why you are anemic.See 1 more doctor answer

Need ABG....: You need to get an arterial blood gas test (ABG) to see what your oxygen level is. There are many factors that could render a pulse ox test inaccurate. In order to get an accurate measure of your oxygen level, and to see if the pulse ox test is accurate or not, have your doctor order an ABG. The test can be done as an outpatient. Good luck!!
Tincture of time: Sunburn heals by itself in about 7 to 10 days. Cool wet soaks and a good emollient cream might speed the process a bit. But the important thing is to learn the lesson mr. Sun is trying to teach you: that he is our friend, but we must respect his power. Apply a good broad-spectrum sunscreen every morning, whether you plan on sunbathing or not.
Dry skin: Not per se, but other factors need to be ruled out, such as medications or anxiety.
A tough one: Although a tan looks attractive, all too many studies have shown that prolonged exposure to the sun (over years) leads to premature ageing of the skin and the development of skin cancers. Some countries like Australia have mandated that folks wear sun screen and cover their heads and bodies to decrease the alarming rates of skin cancers.

Vessels: Pale skin is a bit more translucent than darker skin and you can view the venous pattern underneath. This is normal and not a problem.
Are your periods: Are your periods heavy? This could cause it but you may just be someone who reacts this way when you are on your cycle.
