I have pale skin face knowing that I don't have anemia What could be the problem and how to solve it?

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.

Lightheadedness, weakness, pale skin, feeling fatigue. Do these mean I have anemia?

Lightheadedness, weakness, pale skin, feeling fatigue. Do these mean I have anemia?

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.

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?

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.

Red cells are red!: When severe anemia is present, there are fewer red blood cells in circulation. The red cells give lighter-skinned people some color. Thus, with anemia, people are less red, and appear pale.

Is apparent pale lips and skin overall an indication that you have anemia or some serious disease?

Are these new?: If these are changes in your skin tone and unrelated to avoidance of the sun, you should at least have a simple blood test to see if you are anemic. If you have light patches it is possible that you have an autoimmune condition and should see a doctor.

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.

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!!

Autoimmune, celiac, thyroid, cbc, anemia, vitamin def all normal. Ct and hida scan normal. Still having pale dry skin, loose pale stools, dry hair, help plz?

Skin: You might try essential fatty acids. Alpha linoleic acid (ala), linoleic acid (la), DHA and EPA which can be found in primrose oil and fish oil. These can help the skin and hair. Also make sure you have a a good healthy gut and take probiotics.

How can someone get rid of sunburn marks on pale skin?

How can someone get rid of sunburn marks on pale skin?

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.

Please tell me what skin tone is better pale skin or tan skin for girls?

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.
