I started getting these brown spots on the palms of my hands and fingers. What could it be from?

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

I have red spots on palms of hands under skin.  hands feel warm & tight; skin peeling slightly. No fever or itching.  some type of dermatitis?

Red spots on palms: Some of the causes of red spots on your palms include dyshidrotic eczema (pompholyx), contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, fungal infection, psoriasis, syphilis, and rocky mountain spotted fever, a tick-borne illness that can cause rash on the palms. You really should be evaluated by a doctor.

What std causes red and white spots on palms and burning sensation on palms of hands?

What std causes red and white spots on palms and burning sensation on palms of hands?

Probably no STD: Syphilis can cause a skin rash that involves the palms and soles, but unlikely to cause burning; and syphilis is rare in women in your part of the country. Probably this is something other than syphilis or any other STD. But STDs wouldn't be on your mind if you weren't at risk, so get tested. Play it safe and see a doctor for diagnosis and possible treatment. Good luck!

Brown spots on hands little pink dots appearing as well?

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!

Could Accutane cause brown spots on hands?

Brown Spots: Brown spots may be due to a lack of vitamin C or B12, anemia, weak liver function or cumulative sun damage. It's important to investigate each potential cause; your doctor can help. Accutane makes you sun sensitive which can cause brown spots.
