Dr. Elizabeth King, a dermatologist in Dallas, told Recode she has never seen a patient with a skin condition like hers before.
But the results from her dermatology office can be startling.
King said she often sees patients with very clear, clear skin problems, but they’re often mistaken for more complex, deeper problems.
“They have very severe, itchy skin and itchy, dry, rough skin that looks really, really bad,” she said.
“It’s really just one thing that’s happening.”
King said the skin is actually being pulled apart and broken up by microscopic keratinocytes, or cells that attach to the surface of the skin.
“What happens is the keratin is being stretched, and the keratins themselves are becoming separated from the keraticin, and they become the source of all the damage that we’re seeing,” King said.
King’s experience is what’s called the “messenger skin” syndrome, which is what a patient might see on her dermatologist’s skin.
In this syndrome, skin problems are not the result of an underlying medical condition.
Rather, they’re caused by a combination of the normal skin conditions and underlying skin problems.
King has seen this phenomenon a lot in her practice.
When she sees patients who are in her office, she said she tells them about their skin’s history and the damage they’re causing, and she says it’s the most important thing they can do to stop the damage.
“She’s like, ‘Oh, I can’t see what’s wrong with you,'” King said, laughing.
King told Recodes that she’s seen a couple of patients who have a deeper problem, like a dermatomyositis, a condition that is caused by keratosis and other conditions.
When these patients have a history of this type of keratitis, they have a higher risk of skin damage, and King said they’re more likely to have a flare-up, which leads to skin inflammation.
“It’s not just what they have, it’s what they don’t have,” she explained.
“I’m going to tell you a couple things,” King continued.
“What I’m seeing more and more is that what we’re hearing is that it’s just like having the flu, you know?
That it’s all in the head.
It comes from a combination.”
She also explained that she often gets patients who think they have acne or who think that they have dry skin but have no other symptoms.
In fact, those patients often have worse skin problems than the rest of their patients, King said.
“What I have to tell my patients is if you’re not getting symptoms, you’re getting this, and you need to get that checked out, because it’s not what’s causing it,” she added.
King added that she has been getting a lot of feedback from patients who say their skin is more difficult to treat because they’re not as stressed out.
King believes the most common skin problem in her profession is the skin problem called “mushroom pore.”
“You’ve got this swelling, and this bumps on your skin that don’t come on until you get it out, and that’s the thing that I’m most concerned about,” King explained.
“I’ve seen more cases of mushroom pore than I have any other thing.”
King explained that there’s a reason why so many dermatologists see this skin problem.
They’re dealing with a lot more patients than the other dermatologists do.
“There are so many people that are seeing these things and they’re so worried about getting something wrong that they don, because they don.
And that’s why they’re having so many skin issues,” she continued.
King says the biggest concern she has for her patients is not the skin problems themselves, but what they’re doing to themselves.
“When you’re having skin problems and you’re feeling so stressed out and anxious and depressed, I think it’s important to look at your body and say, ‘Do I look good or do I look sad?’
And that kind of stuff,” she noted.
King also says that when people don’t see the signs of a underlying problem, they often believe the problem is “the wrong kind of skin,” which can cause serious skin problems if left untreated.
King advises that people who are not getting the symptoms of a dermatologic problem like mushroom pores or dermatomyosis, such as eczema, should try to work out why they feel the way they do, and how to correct the problem.
“We have to find the root cause,” she advised.
