Having white spots in my skin in cold temperatures, is this a skin problem or a blood problem? abnormalities?

my skin turns white spotted in cold temperatures, like in an airconditioned rooms or simply in malls. i dont know if this is kind of a skin or blood disease but sometimes it keeps me worried. im experiencing it for a some years, i dont feel anything no itch or fever or whatsoever, its kinda obvious in my arm i am not white nor tanned simply fair skin toned. My sister is a medtech but she says i have no problem.

Hope somebody can give .me an idea about it before il check on my doctor.

looks like a mutant... lol Xmen! power? getting spotted in cold conditions. hehehe

THank you.
If it is a normal body mechanism, does it mean i that i dont have enough blood? or should i say im anemic?

No, there is probably nothing wrong with your skin. What you describe is a normal reaction. When we are in a cold environment our body uses some defense mechanisms to keep our vital organs warm (heart, lungs, liver...) One of these mechanisms is decreasing the amount of blood that irrigates your skin; so it looks spotted.  (+ info)


I need immediate help, I'm scared to death! I don't really know how to describe it but I'll try my hardest. Around 2 months ago my ankle began hurting to the touch and feeling very sore in one specific spot. It kept getting worse and felt somewhat like a very sore bruise/ aching burning pain that I cannot describe. But only when touched. I woke up this morning and the same sensation was on the under part of my elbow.. like the where the elbow bone is.. above and to the side of that. Right around there. This pain is the same however I feel it more often because whenever I reach or move my arm/elbow joints I feel it, rather than just when it is touched. Is this some sort of disease? Does this sound like any condition you know of ? I will soon be going to the doctor but in the mean time I'd just like to know your thoughts. I'm only 17 years old and seemingly healthy. I was in a fatal car accident two months ago and had head trama with 70 stiches/staples, two broken bones in my back, and internal bleeding. Due to the head trama I cant remeber if the pain in my ankle was there before the accident or not. Could these pains possibly be related.. or are they completely irrelevent?? I came so close to dying in the crash that lately I've been peranoid and terrified of anything possibly harmful. Could this be a type of cancer? There's not many symptoms to eleborate on.. so this could be difficult to diagnose. However I'm completely sure that these pains are no where near normal!!

Aww Sweetheart, I'm sorry that you are going through all of this. First of all, you do whatever you need to do to be at peace, if you need to go to the emergency room, and you can afford it, just go. Just to make sure that is' isn't some kind of infection or something.

I have pains that sound similar to that, especially in my elbow, or near my ribs. I have back/nerve issues so I think it's that. It isn't normal, I'm sure, but it isn't as harmful as your mind could make it out to be.

Personally I don't think it's any kind of cancer, I think it may be some bruising, or some sensations that your body's getting used to. After some trauma like that, it takes a while for your body to feel somewhat normal. (It's never going to be normal, especially as you age accident or not). So don't be scared. Pray, and accept the peace that God give to you. You'll be fine.  (+ info)

How would you deal with this reaction to your skin if water makes it turn red and swell up after a shower?

When I take a shower I get red marks in small areas on my face and neck and within 3-5 minutes they go away. I am not really worried about this but other people have seen this and they think it is terrible that I have some disease/abnormality. That I should go to a Dr. and get all kinds of tests. I think it is just a reaction to the different types of water! like hard/soft water. It happens to other family matters and it goes away, should I be nervous or just let it go? I hate Dr's so I don't really want to go!
Sorry I meant to say family members!

1. does this occur if you use only water? no shampoo/soap/etc?
2. if it occurs using only water, try lowering the water temp a bit. it sounds like a heat reaction.
3. does it occur if you use distilled water (i know this is not realistic for bathing/showering, but it would help determine if it were something in the water or if it were the temp)
4. unlikely, but does it occur if you bathe instead of shower? if not, posture/positioning may be a factor.
5. if it goes away, has no remaining/lasting marks, is not painful or uncomfortable, and only seems cosemetic, my inclination would be to not worry about it.  (+ info)

What are the risk of high abnormalities and pregnancy?

Im 19 and i hav a pap smear done a couple months ago which came back posible high abnormalities. Im booked for a calapsy in august.
I was wondering what are the risk of having high abnormalities during pregancy.

There will be no risk if you go and get this problem sorted out. You shouldn't be thinking about pregnancy at 19 though. I can't imagine why if your pap came back normal it took them a few months to book you for a colposcopy. They booked mine with in a few days. they went in, did their biopsies and stuff and nothing was wrong. I've had 3 children with no abnormalities.  (+ info)

What are the odds to having a down syndrome baby with 2 ultrasound abnormalities?

I went in for my ultrasound at 19 wks and found out the baby has echoing in the heart ventricles and a cyst at base of brain. Individually, they would not be concerned, but because 2 abnormalities are present I need to go in for a level 2 ultrasound. What are my odds for having a down syndrome baby at 30 with these abnormalities being present?

I am 34 and had 2 abnormalities on my son's ultrasound. He had an echogenci foci (white spot on the heart) and a dilated kidney. He is a perfect 3 month old. 2 abnormalities is not unusual at all. Try not to worry. I know that's hard because I've been there.  (+ info)

want to understand the link between chromosomal abnormalities in parents and recurrent miscarriages?

I learn that one of the reasons for recurrent miscarriage of a pregnancy is the chromsomal abnormalities found in atleast one parent. I have the following questions:
1. Does this problem always result in a miscarriage or are there chances of delivering a live baby ?
2. If it results in a child-birth, are there chances of the baby born with abnormalities ?
3. Is this problem curable/treatable ?

1. The problem does not always end in a miscarriage. Most chrom abnormalities that result in a miscarriage happen before 6 weeks of pregnancy.

2. 1 out of 150 babies is born with a chromosomal abnormality. These types of abnormalities occur when the structure of a chromosome is damaged or the number of chromosomes is off (extra or too few).

3. Down syndrome (trisomy 21), Patau's syndrome (trisomy 13), and Edward's syndrome (trisomy 18) are common chromosomal abnormalites. Prenatal testing, like amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling, can be done before the birth and I have heard that they can now go in and remove the extra chromosomes or fix them which would fix the abnormality but most of them are non-curable and non-treatable.  (+ info)

What are some examples of brain abnormalities?

Can anyone give me a list of brain abnormalities?? I need ten for my psychology class I started this week....thanks!
I've been searching on search engines for a few hours, so if anyone know some off of the top of their head...it would be greatly appreciated!

Google it!

There are so many brain abnormalities and causes - both injury and birth defects.

Try googling neuropsychology or neurological disorders.  (+ info)

How can i get lighter skin without damaging my skin?

I am mixed and i really hate my skin. Especially the skin on my neck/throat and back. So i wondered how i could change it without spending a fortune and damaging my skin severly. I am not planning on being chalk white or having fair skin. A Dark Olive Skin Tone would be fine and still seem natural. I live in Europe and it's not to sunny here but when it is i usually use sunblocker and avoid going into the sun. I want to be lighter because i like the way it looks. I do think that other people are pretty with dark skin but not me. I do NOT want to lighten my skin because someone has told me or because of celebirties (i actually do have the skin color most black celebirties WANT. It kinda like Rhianna- maybe a little lighter). My mum thinks i have oh so pretty skin but i think it's to dark. I heard that they are diets and stuff????

success in skin lightening does not rely on products alone.. although choosing the right products is essential, there are other things to consider and do to lighten skin effectively..here's a good article to educate you how to achieve it correctly and safely -  (+ info)
