Brown Spots On Hands Overnight
I woke up today and found small brown spots in a cluster, about 3 inches big, on my forearm near my wrist. This literally happened overnight. Diagnosis?
Impossible to tell: For sure without actual examination. But if is sudden onset and localized to a 3 inch area, it is most likely something that happened to your skin locally. For example, contact dermatitis, insect bite, local irritant. If it spreads to other areas of the body, you must look to systemic disorders. Go to dermatologist if it persists.
I am not certain: Exactly what you are asking and don't know whether these spots and dots are flat, raised, painful, painless, large, small, associated with eachother or not, on the back of the hand, or palms, on the fingers or not and how long have they been there. A few more details would help...thanks!See 1 more doctor answer

I've had little light brown spots pop up on my hand and disappear and then show up somewhere else on my hand. What are they?
Hard to tell: Without seeing a picture of the spots. If they pop up again, take a picture and use the Healthtap consultation service - there we can see the pictures you upload. Or see your local PCP so they can examine them more closely.
I woke up with 3 light brown spots on my hand one is about a centimeter in width, the other two are a bit smaller. What concerned, what can it be?
Needs to be seen: It is impossible to determine what these spots are without them being seen. If they are of concern to you, make an appointment for your physician to see them so they can make a diagnosis.
Keratosis?: These may represent stucco keratosis which is localized thickening of skin simi, ar to barnacles on a boat. Soak and use peeling cream with urea or lac 5. This will remove surface and improve appearance. If this disturbs you dermatologist can diagnose and remove ith minor procedure.
I have I brown spots in my hand and I don't know how I got it or what it might be its in my right hand and right now I only have two spots
Without: Without seeing the lesions in question, brown spots on the hands are typically age or sun spots. To be safe visit your primary care provider or dermatologist for an evaluation. All the best.

I started noticing 2 brown spots on my hand and they got darker after days I work in the sun of course and I'm going to the docs tomorrow I need help.
Dark spots: It is a good thing to see your doctor about the spots. Also check your whole body for any moles to show him also.
Many things: It's hard to do dermatology without being able to see the spots. I suggest seeing a doctor for this. In addition to seeing the spots, the doctor will also look at your med list, what you do with your hands, any health problems you have that my be contributing, etc.

Brown spots on hand: Can be vitamin deficiency Vit C, B12, anemia, liver dysfunction but most likely sun/age but usually that is after 40- unless you spend a lot of time in the sun.

Many possibilities: There are many types and causes of skin rashes. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Dermatology: Evaluation is necessary: this sounds like possible photo- damage from UV exposure- best to get it checked.

I have developed brown spots that look like dead skin on my left hand near my knuckles. I'm freaked out. Please help.
Doctor appointment: Without a detailed history plus a photograph or a more detailed description, it is hard to make a diagnosis. I would encourage you to make an appointment with a family practice doctor or a dermatologist. At your young age, I would not generally think that you have a serious skin condition. The unknown is always scary. Try to call for an appointment tomorrow.
