Symptoms Of Skin Disorders

Skin conditions have a wide range of symptoms. Symptoms that appear because of common problems (like blisters from new shoes or chafing from tight pants) are not often signs of a skin disease or disorder.

Skin problems that have no immediately identifiable cause may be a sign of an actual skin condition requiring treatment.

The following symptoms are signs of a skin disorder:

  • raised bumps that are red or white in color
  • a rash, with or without pain or itch
  • scaly or rough skin
  • chafing and peeling skin
  • ulcers
  • open sores or lesions
  • dry, cracked skin
  • discolored patches of skin
  • fleshy bumps, nodules, warts, or other skin growths
  • changes in mole color or size
  • loss of skin pigment
  • excessive flushing with or without stimulus
