There is a small scaly circle about the size of a cigarette butt on the top of my hand. It popped up out of nowhere about a week ago. It is not red, nor itchy, but is slightly lighter in color, probably due to the scalyness of the area. It's just barely raised above the skin, and has not spread since I found it. I'm a 21 yo laboratory researcher with no insurance, so I'm looking for answers online. I cannot find anyone who shares my symptoms.
--also, i have never taken off my gloves in the lab, so I would not think to blame any chemicals from there.
