The patient’s skin would turn blue, or yellow. There would be signs of hyper-pigmentation, rashes, jaundice and bruises. You will certainly have to check for any kind of head injury or wound marks.

This disease is also known as Grave’s disease due to its resemblance to some of the symptoms attached. Hence, people are requested to help others injured in any moment. You will also have to ensure that he or she is given the first aid without any kind of delay.
