There was a post with an article a while back about a black dr who published a reference guide(book? Research paper?) About how signs and symptoms usually appear differently on different skin tones. I’m amazed someone had to actually publish something on that topic but honestly, I’m not surprised. There was another post about how women experience drug side effects more often than men because the dosage recommendations are based on the size and weight of the average male.
In my mind, it’s like each illness has a checklist of symptoms and you have to hit a certain amount of boxes to be considered to have it. Since illness presents different it’s up to the Drs to know each checklist, visual symptoms on people of different skin tones are just more boxes on the same list.
