What Your Skin Says About Your Health (Don’t Ignore These) Just as healthy skin contributes to your overall health, one primary ability of the skin is also to raise the red flag when your body is sick. More importantly, many of these skin symptoms actually indicate underlying health problems that shouldn’t be ignored. For instance, a butterfly rash on your face that just won’t go away can mean you have lupus. Let’s take a closer look at these skin signs and what they might indicate for your health. This skin condition is called acanthosis nigricans and could be benign or caused by obesity. But more often than not, it’s one of the early signs of diabetes. Albeit rare, acanthosis nigricans can be a warning sign of a cancerous tumor in an internal organ, such as the liver or stomach. If you have them, then it’s a classic sign of psoriasis, a condition where the skin cells replicate too quickly without properly shedding. Psoriasis can appear anywhere on the skin, but the most common is on the scalp. A rash on the face isn’t always lupus. However, if you or anyone you know has a purple rash near the hairline and has little patches of hair loss, then it’s likely lupus.

Hepatitis is a virus-caused disease affecting the liver. So, if your skin or the whites of your eyes have turned yellow, consult your doctor as soon as you can. Speaking of hepatitis, another possible sign of this condition is having itchy, violet bumps on your wrist. Lichen planus is a rash that appears as flat-topped bumps in color reddish-purple. Lichen planus is associated with a viral disease like hepatitis C. But if you’re worried or experiencing other PCOS symptoms, such as irregular periods or inability to lose weight, then better consult a doctor. Next up, let’s learn about the potential health risks of this skin symptom. We all know that skin cancer shows up on the epidermis. What many aren’t aware of is that internal cancers such as lung, ovarian, or gastrointestinal, can have skin symptoms as well.
A person who develops excess fine white hair is suffering from a condition called hypertrichosis lanuginosa. It may not seem like a big deal, but hypertrichosis lanuginosa is an ominous sign of internal malignancy that’s most commonly linked with colon and lung cancers.

It’s a skin condition that’s common among fair-skinned, middle-aged women, though it can appear to anyone at any age.
