    I think i'm turning into an orange.

    I woke up to find strange orange/brown patches on the back of my hand and wrist. Initially i thought i must have somehow scratched myself and it was dried blood, except it doesn't wash off. I've not come into contact with any dyes, odd creams or food that stain. So I'm a little creeped out...

    Lol exactly, it does. Except I never use henna! The colour and smell makes me uncomfortable.

    I'd say see a doctor or pharmacist. Looks like sun spots or something so could be some sort of skin condition either benign or non. I'm sure it's nothing serious but it's certinally worth checking, especially if you don't think it's dye or anything like that.

    At first I thought this was a troll thread, and was gonna make a comment about Trump.

    But then you posted a pic, and it turns out it did happen.

    Hope it's nothing too serious OP! Like other commenters, I thought at first it looked like mehndi/ henna, but it would be good to see a doctor and get it checked out.
