What were your resolutions this year? Did taking better care of yourself make the list? Our outward appearance show us signs of our internal health.
Some outward signs to be watchful for include:
Circular skin discolorations
Any area of the skin that dramatically changes colors in a short period of time can be a cause of concern. From easily bruising to Velvet Plaque these can be serious signs of internal imbalance and you should speak with your primary care doctor about your concerns as soon as possible.
Flushing or skin redness
If your skin has started to appear more flushed, have a red cast or even appear to have a rash you could be seeing initial signs of Rosacea, Dermatitis or even Lupus. If you have this skin concern, immediately seek help from a doctor.
Raised bumps or scaly skin
If you have raised, bumpy skin that appears reddish or purple in color this could be a sign of Hepatitis C. Other bumps, often found on the hands, can be an indicator of cancer. Try not to scratch these areas even if they are itchy and immediately seek medical help.
