Question: Brown spots on hands/fingers


 kthurman59 - Tue May 08, 2007 10:29 am

Hi,
A few days ago I noticed I had a group of brown dots on my finger. They seemed to be in groups of two so I thought it was a spider bite, although it was painless. Today I noticed two more brown dots on the end of my finger too, which are also painless. The large group of dots seem to be thicker in texture than the rest of my skin and the dots themselves seem to be under my skin. Here are some pictures:

I know its not melanoma or a bite. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

User avatar You may have a contact irritation from something causing this. The pictures really don't look like anything specific that I can think of.

If it is not improving or if it is getting worse I would recommend you see your doctor for an evaluation. You may need a topical medication to help it resolve.

Best wishes.
