Until your teenage years you are most familiar with the regular bout of pimples, acne and blackheads. But what about a different kind of a skin bump that you just don’t seem to recognize? It can be little unnerving trying to figure out how did it ever happen and compels you to think if that was anything to do with a serious skin disorder or a lurking disease.
But before you panic, know that your skin is simply probably trying to tell you something and none other than a dermatologist can clear your doubts and let you know what needs to be done. Most often than not, these benign little bumps are harmless, but whatever pops up in your skin is worth getting discussed with a skin professional or cosmetic dermatologist.
Here’s a breakdown of some of the skin issues you might be facing:
- Certain type of Moles– Not all moles are merely beauty marks. While some can be perfectly harmless, certain changes in a mole’s appearance could signal something serious. A mole that is asymmetry has an uneven edge, colour or diameter could mean an early stage of melanoma. So if you spot a bizarre looking mole, or too many of them check with a dermatologist.
- Odd Bumps or Scabs- Scabs result from the healing process of old cuts and wounds and are common symptoms of an underlying skin infection. They may also occur right after an attack of chicken pox, cold sores or burns, blisters and abrasions. Although scabs are not a serious skin issue but if you experience any discomfort like itchiness or a mild fever, seek medical intervention. A bump that has not gone away on its natural course anytime in six to eight weeks must be checked with a dermatologist.
- A Growing Spot- Check out for spots that are stands out from other spots and is rather ugly. They may be itchy, painful and change in colour from tan, brown, black, or multi-coloured and get potentially bigger. They may spring up on any part of the body and if caught early, can be treated with laser skin treatment or surgery.
Whenever you spot any difference to your regular skin, do not self-diagnose or spend too much time Googling for the answers. Seek a professional opinion with a cosmetic dermatologist.
