Small brown bumps on tops of fingers (almost) overnight
zod000 posted:
I have noticed a lot of little brown discolorations on the fingers of both my hands. They are circular and flat, though some look like a small bump. They cause no pain and do not itch.
Before you ask, I have NOT been in the sun any more than usual. They seemed to appear overnight, but have not grown in the two or three weeks since I noticed them. They are slightly darker than my normal freckles.
It is possible they are small burns from smoking though I find the locations sort of unlikely.
Any ideas? I'm not panicking yet, just odd.
