Now when i was studying about thalassemia, I read that anaemia is its major characterstic. I can understand that fact. But it was also written that the skin gets pale.
Wikipedia says that the skin turns yellowish.
I want to ask firstly is it that the skin gets darker when the affected person is exposed to sun and is otherwise pale?
And also why does the skin turn yellow/pale in the first place? Does that have to do something with Iron?
