What Causes Yellow Color In My Hands
Good day, I would just like to know what is the cause of yellow patches on skin. A quarter size on the chest and now a bigger patch on the hand.?
Yellow patch skin: I would ask someone who sees patients in South Africa as the causes may be a lot different than in US. You may be able to consult with a Dr on our site who trained in SA.

I woke up and I notice my finger nails are yellow. What can be the causes? Don't wear nail polish or fake nails.
Good news: The good news is that nail changes from serious disease to not occur overnight. Nails can be discolored by coming into contact with chemicals, dyes, spices, etc. Have you been using your hands for any new projects lately?
My 2 year old son thumb nail looks infected, it has yellow puss that has been coming out cause it all crusted up around base part, and swollen?
Time for visit: It does sound infected and you can sometimes help it by using peroxide to clean the area along with warm soaks. If it has been there for a while and you have done this already, an office visit for additional evaluation and treatment would be worthwhile. Some of these need to be drained in the office.
My toe nail of the third toe on both feet have an identical shaped light yellow patch coving 2/3 of the nail. It appeared in a short period of time. (3 weeks) what are possible causes?

Carotenemia: Carotenemia is a clinical condition characterized by yellow pigmentation of the skin (xanthoderma) and increased beta-carotene levels in the blood. In most cases, the condition follows prolonged and excessive consumption of carotene-rich foods, such as carrots, squash, and sweet potatoes. Could this be possible in your case?See 2 more doctor answers
Most common: Causes are excess vitamin intake (beta carotene or vitamin B), diet (excess carrots), and some medications, also we worry about jaundice (excess bilirubin) or diabetes. Check your diet and vitamin situation, and eliminate those mentioned above but if not better in a month see your primary care physician
Yellow-orange hands: While jaundice can show up on the palms, a more common cause of yellow orange colour on the hands is high intake of beta carotene. Beta carotene is found mainly in green leafy vegetables, and orange vegetables like carrots. I'm guessing here, but do you drink a lot of vegetable juice or take vitamin supplements?

I just started weight training and I've been getting callouses on my hands. But they are yellow and unsightly. Why are they yellow and what can I do?
See below: I often get callouses too. I ordered a callous remover off of amazon. It's basically a razor on a handle. Worked great and it really helps the callouses heal. As to why they are yellow, not sure.
Fungus: You may have a fungal infection of your nail. You should see a dermatologist for proper evaluation and treatment.
I had to hand in a urine sample a say late. I noticed within a day the urine had turned from light yellow to very dark. Is this normal?
Hi I was trying to "incorrectly" trim my nail of one of my small toes using my hands and it has came loose and underneath is a bit slimy and yellow?
Losing the nail: Seems a likely outcome. To prevent infection and help it to come off less painfully, soak in warm soapy water whenever you can do so and gently lift on it as you do so. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
