Hi,
For the past 6 months I've battled with my hands changing colour (it goes completely orange).

I'm not eating excessive carrots / pumpkin.

Any ideas?

  • There is also some yellowing that can occur from hormones, specifically, hypothyroidism.Have you had your hands in anything like planting mix which contains minerals?Other than that, I agree with Monsterlove.I suggest you see a doctor asap to rule out a medical problem. It's been 6 months and you don't want to damage your organs.

Hi MarieMarx, Do you have any other symtoms of any kind. The skin of the hands, feet and face can turn yellow to brown, and yellow/brown could sure be described as orange, after Pernicious Anemia occurs. Come on over to http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?p=92803&posted=1#post92803and let's talk about this. Repost this with all your symtoms. We have a complete list of symptoms over there some pages back from the bottom.
