There are complaints of blackish brown spots or spots that appear in the finger area and then also appear in the back of the hand, this condition is likely hyperpigmentation of your skin. Hyperpigmentation illustrates the change in skin color becoming darker than other areas. If hyperpigmentation is not accompanied by complaints of itching or complaints of other skin rashes, then these complaints can be triggered by sun exposure on your skin. If your activities are often in the sun, then the skin response can be brownish or darker, and sometimes irritation can be felt on your skin. The longer complaints hyperpigmentation can be more widespread. However, this should be confirmed directly by your doctor in consultation with your doctor. Without seeing directly the complaint you feel, the doctor will be difficult to ascertain the cause of this complaint.
Apart from the sun spot or the effect of sun exposure, several other conditions can also cause similar complaints, such as:
Bacterial, fungal, skin infections Skin allergies Flea bites Viral rash, or rashes due to viral infections, such as hand-foot and mouth disease, which appear red to brownish spots around the hands, feet, and rashes around the mouth Folliculitis, inflammation of the hair root The possibility of a skin cancer, does not give the picture as you feel. Skin cancer is often characterized by chronic wounds that do not heal, or lumps soft and shiny, or reddish lumps that bleed easily, or lumps like tahilalat but irregular shapes and vague boundaries. Symptoms that are often a sign of danger of skin cancer are, lumps, irregular, unclear boundaries, bleed easily, or shiny redness. However, to confirm a skin cancer, a direct examination of your skin is needed, one of which is a biopsy on the skin that is suspected of being cancerous.

The doctor will conduct a physical examination and plan the necessary investigations. The results of the examination will be a reference for your care and treatment. Thus, this complaint will soon improve, and your concern will soon disappear.
Henceforth, several things also need to be done, such as maintaining healthy skin, use sun block when under the sun, make it a habit to wash your hands after activity and avoid using drugs without a doctor's prescription.
