Customer Question

Hi, For the past few days there has been some rust-coloured stains on the palms of my hands when I awake in the morning. I think it may have to do with a vitamin or mineral deficiency.

Hi. It could be tinea nigra palmaris which is a fungal skin infection and can be treated either with over the counter Lamisil cream or with prescription ketoconazole cream. There are no vitamin or mineral deficiencies that would cause this.

Let me know if you need more information please
