Hi, dear.
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. You have sperocytosis. It is hemolytic anemia. So pallor or jaundice can lead to discolouration of face. You should go for splenectomy. It is the treatment of choice for sperocytosis.
Consult your doctor and take treatment accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
