From what you are describing it sounds like an extra hepatic manifestation associated with hepc called Porphyria Cutanea Tarda (PCT). Essentially, what happens is because of the hepc the liver does not process iron properly. See your doctor and have phlebotomy sessions (blood letting) scheduled to treat the Porphyria. Phlebotomy reduces ferrtin levels and generally the Porphyria will subside.
Here is a link which explains PCT.
