Hello,Well as you describeThe rust colored discoloration is likely related to the excessive carotene intake & hence deposition in the skin.This is a benign condition.If you have associated itching,peeling of skin around them then contact dermatitis should be ruled out.Hope this helps.

You should avoid eating too much beta-carotene-rich food, such as carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, oranges and spinach.Also apply calamine lotion on affected areas.Change your hand wash.Hope this helps.If you are satisfied with our conversation then positive feedback and bonus are highly appreciated.Feel free for further queries.Thanks.
