Hey guys. I'm a complete hypochondriac and these spots have been on my palm for a few weeks I think. Does anyone know what they could be and if they are a cause for concern.

Thank you

MD

Try pressing a glass up against your skin where the spots are. If the spots dont disappear (or near enough) then thats a strong indicator that they are malignant. However even if they are not, you should go see your quack as they may be infectious. Such skin conditions are most commonly caused by swimming in polluted waters (such as canals, the Thames etc), handling dog feces and manipulative stimulation of an unclean individual.

Looks very even. Do you ride a bike with knobbly grips or something?

Nope I don't ride a bike at all or anything remotely similar. And I pressed my hand against a glass and they disappeared

Hey, I also have the same problem. I got these random red spots on the palms of my hand and they only showed up an hour or so ago. I’ve been playing Xbox all day and ate some McDonald’s and that was it... I also have another rash on my leg that appeared yesterday. I’m starting to get concerned. I know this was 4 years ago, but I need you to update me on if the reds spots disappear and if you’re still alive 😂 (sorry I get anxious).

I first observed the same symptom several years ago (interestingly, around the same time that this thread was started...) The symptom continues to present itself on an intermittent, non-persistent basis as of today.

I visited several doctors over the past few years in an attempt to understand what this strange new symptom could be the result of, but I didn't find any answers. I visited two Chinese doctors at separate practices of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and they were happy to look at my palms and treat me with acupuncture (and take my money in exchange). While this did seem to clear up my palms and keep them clear for an extended period of time, I didn't receive any clear answers as to what the cause was. It's also difficult to say whether the acupuncture was the reason why my palms cleared, since the symptom typically disappears after a few days anyway.

I also visited a physician who works at a standard clinic and practices western medicine. She didn't seem overly concerned by the photos and told me to come back when the symptom was actively presenting itself. Of course, this was impossible to time since the symptom is intermittent and non-persistent, so I haven't been back and I still haven't found any answers.

I'm wondering if this could be "palmar erythema." Some of the photos for a search result on that condition seem to look pretty similar. Another possibility is "petechiae." But I really don't feel qualified to self-diagnose since I am not a doctor nor even a student of medicine. Not really sure what else to do now other than ignore this and hope that it's not caused by anything serious.

It looks like neither of these. If it's been going on for 4 years and you are still fine, it is unlikely to be anything serious.

This also happened to me it’s been going on for about a year I think. I’ve been to the doctor once and he said he didn’t know what it was. I was also thinking it could be palmar erythema but with that it says there is no itch or anything but mine does itch and has a slight sting
