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.

I get those too sometimes. They don't hurt, they don't do anything, they're just there. And then they go away, eventually.
Might be that it comes from the pollen from plants, such as lillies. They stain everything! Can you remember coming into contact with any plants/flowers recently? That's what it is for me every time.
Other than that, I'd say just keep an eye on it, if it gets worse in some way, go see your doctor :-)

Moisturise your hands & use SPF on them, lol. Very likely just sun spots / will fade if you’re young.

In my culture we say that if you wake up with henna on either your hand or foot, it means that an angel is proud of you

I to had a problem like this, i recently woke up with rust like stains on my palm. I noticed that its actually mostly contained on the top of my skin and not under . It looked like some sort of red powder is stuck in the pores near the stains. Instead of water i tried to wash it pf with my saliva , and soon enough it faded away. What i think is the cause is if u sleep on that arm u may spill some saliva out of your mouth during sleep and during night that saliva oxidase to brown-redish colour you see in the morning . Something like that u can see in dogs mouth , the brown stains mostly seenable in the white dogs

I had marks on both my thumbs and index fingers I got them for 3 days and then they went. After a week I got them again today. Searched it up and apparently it’s Carotenosis.

That happened to me this morning! I woke up with my face on my palms and looked at them to see these orange/reddish stains on both palms. I thought I had bled from the nose but that was not the case. I attempted to wash it off, but to no avail. Did you ever find out what could have caused this?

I had the same thing... so creepy. I thought I had bled, but quickly realized it was not the case. Could it be an insect like cockroach or something disturbing me in the sleep, and that I chase away with my hand? I would hope if it were it would wake me up, but I can be a very heavy sleeper.So creepy.
