On my left hand. I'm only 49. I'm way too young to get these. ugh!
No, you're not. And, blame the sun-- not your liver.
If it bothers you that much, go to a dermatologist and have it lightly frozen with liquid nitrogen.
It will then dry up and disappear.
You're thinking of OP's clit, R2.
You're 49 OP?! No you are not too young.
That's around the age when I started getting age spots too. Mine aren't liver colored, just like parts of my skin are getting tan while the rest of it isn't. Invest in some good sunscreen and see a dermatologist if it really starts bugging you.
Eventually all the dots connect and you look exactly like the black man you imagine is menacing you.
Seriously OP, if it bothers you, have a dermatologist treat it with liquid nitrogen.
One warning: The novocaine injections given pre-procedure were among the most painful experiences in my life. It's because you have no fat and very little muscle tissue on the back of your hand. You also will have a spot without pigment permanently, but that is easily covered with a touch of concealer to match your skin.
Good Luck and wear strong sunblock on your hands, especially when driving.
Porcelana hon, Porcelana.
I wish. There currently is not a medically prescribed bleaching cream strong enough to eradicate a sun(liver) spot. There are some high enough in hydroquinone to IMPROVE the appearance, but not at the cosmetics counter.
Seriously, Nurse Ratchet? I used an Rx strength hydroquinone on splotchy freckles on my face and shoulders and was pretty happy with the quick results. What would be different about using the stuff on the hands?
They eventually turn into seborrheic keratoses.
Disagree about freezing them. I had two done several years ago and was with left white circles on the back of hands that are more unsightly than the age spots were.
Wish I hadn't done it and will NOT freeze any more.
Porcelana sounds interesting … might try it.
First off, I am thrilled for you! Great results are always good to hear.
I could be wrong, but I was assuming when OP said "liver spot" he was speaking of actinic keratosis which usually is a bit more deep in color and "set in" than a freckle.
My mom is 71 and has never had one. She's avoided the sun like the plague.
How common are these little buggers?
49? It's time to give up.
No one's looking at you long enough to notice a liver spot.
seborrheic keratoses are (IMHO) more difficult and unsightly. For one thing, one tends to pick at them occasionally which causes them to bleed.
 Don't mean to sound too bossy, but save your $$ on Porcelana or any OTC lightening potion. You simply must have a higher percent of hydroquinone.
In the state of FL, they are epidemic due to all the golfers and just plain days in the sun.
But driving is a giant bugaboo too. Often folks find their left hand to be more spot prone for that very reason.
OP, have we ever got a surprise for you!
Try Ambi Fade Cream.
What about this therapy to get rid of age spots?
Recommend? See link.
If not, what about resection or amputation?
When I was little, I asked my grandmother why she had ugly spots all over her hands?
 Or just go the Madonna route and permanently affix gloves.
Once you get the clumpy semen, liver spots will not bother you.
Hairy ears and backs, clotted smelly yellow semen, age spots on hands and face, gray pubes, shrinkage of the dickage ….
Yesiree, this aging shit is a real trip, I tell you!
Maybe you're lucky, OP, and it's cancer rather than a liver spot.
Thank God I'm black
yeah well, there's tinea versicolor for you OP.
Oh, excuse me, "acid" is what black people like to call it.
I thought you used laser treatments to get rid of those. No?
Where did the term liver spots come from? It's horrible.
Maybe the old "Carter's Little Liver Pills" coined the term in order to push their product?
Tinea versicolor is not a "black" thing.
Anyone who isn't wearing a sunscreen of at least 30 spf EVERY SINGLE DAY is a fool, and that include you, OP.
I'm forty-two and I live in Florida, and I've worn a sunscreen every day since I was a kid. I also use a prescription retinoid (Tazorac) nightly. (This, in combination with a 4% hydroquinine ointment, will eradicate your brownspot, OP.)
From the time I turned thirty-five, every eight months I have a fractionated CO2 laser treatment on my face, neck and hands. I'm not just doing this for vanity's sake, either. When I was thirty I was diagnosed with testicular cancer, and I decided then and there that I was never going through chemo again. There aren't sufficient words to describe how horrible it was.
I urge every last one of you to wear a sunscreen . . . and preferably a physical one.
For the most part, it is!
When blacks call the office complaining of acid, I could save the Dr. some time and make the diagnosis right then and there.
Okay, I'll bite: I'm Black and haven't a clue as to what you're talking about when referring to "acid." I googled tinea versicolor (never having heard of it as well) and it, too, remains a mystery to me as I've never known anyone with the condition.
Clueless in Hell's Kitchen
uh, when asked... "What's the problem" ....
and we ask all patients this when they call to make sure a dermatologist is really what's needed...
They ALWAYS say acid on the back and shoulders.
If I could write a RX, I could save the dr and pt some time by just putting one in the mail.
Get IPL treatment. Works and does not leave any mark. After use good sunscreen.
What's IPL treatment?
Intense Pulsed Light . . . works on the same principle as a laser. What you really want is the Genesis laser, which functions on a wavelength that will affect both red and brown areas of concern.
How much....say for the top of the rt. hand?
I need fatter hands; the tops stay alligatored unless I'm jerking off or gripping something.
how do you get rid of the crepe paper skin that comes with age? is there any treatment that encourages collagen growth and makes the skin firm and flexible again?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
