For a number of years I get a discoloration on my left hand finger pads between little finger and index finger.
If I cut the skin it is not below first skin layer. At first I considered it was stain from something I might have come into contact with. I no longer think so.
If I wash the area the stain remains. I can however get a great reduction using bleach or alcohol and a tooth brush. The tooth brush does have a stain on bristles when finished. But discoloration returns the next morning upon getting up from bed.
The stains seem to hang around for a month or 2 then goes away but does return. Been going on for about 10 years. Stains always appear at same location each time it returns.
I have researched the internet for months now not finding any answers. I do not have the money to go to a skin doctor.
