About these brown liver spots on my hands and face from illness?

Liver spots: Liver spots are the result of the skin's defence mechanism against over-exposure to the sun.

Liver spots are not associated with the liver. ...Read more

I have about two dozen white spots on my MRI  my face and other parts of my skin are numb. I get these tremors that go from the back of my head down m?

UBOs (not UFOs): Until a diagnosis is given, white MRI spots are called ubos (unidentified bright objects) for which many different causes are known. You obviously have a brain disease (tremor & numbness). But the symptom combination is not diagnostic. At young age (20s-30s) ms (multiple sclerosis) is probably the commonest cause. See a neurologist & expect further testing. ...Read more

In the meantime try benadryl, (diphenhydramine) if that works then you can be more confident that it is allergy related. Also consider new lotions, detergents or soaps that you may be using.

Stress induced?: Consider candida since cortisone and tolnafate would not treat this. Stress and a high carb diet fosters this yeast. Coconut oil ingested kills yeast. Eat 6 equal healthy meals including 6 servings of fresh and steamed vegetables and one apple each day. Relax and learn to manage stress skilfully. Getting at least 60 minutes of fun exercise every day has multiple health benefits. ...Read more

Need more info: Itching is a very common complaint and is seen with many skin conditions. I'm not sure about the black dots. These could be tiny broken blood vessels like petechiae, or crusts (scabs). I think seeing a dermatologist will be critical in order to get a diagnosis and a treatment plan.
