mottled skin on palms of hands

Does anybody else get mottled skin on the palms of their hands? Kind of like a marbling of pink and white? Is this a lupus symptom? What causes it?

I hope I'm not starting to many threads but I like to stay organized!!! Also, I don't want somebody to have to read something they aren't interested in.

" I should add that the mottling of the skin on my palms is not related to sun or cold exposure but can happen when I've been inside for an extended period. "

" I do get what appears to be the same as your "mottled skin" but I have never had it confirmed by a doc that that is directly related to lupus. I do not get a lot of exposure to sun or cold either when it happens I am usually indoors. I have an appointment with my rheumy next week I will ask about it. Take care. "

" Hmm, after reading this, I took a look at the palms of my hands. Sure enough, the skin is a mottled pink and white. Guess they've been like this a long time and I never thought about it.

peace and love ... Kyle Anne "

" could it be that the mottling is normal in even people without a connective tissue disorder?? "

" Hi,
I also get this and it happens all over my body. It is called levido reticulus and is very common with lupus. There is nothing to do for it. I am on meds and still get it. I also have Raynauds and APS but have been told this is lupus related.

" Hi Laurie! One of the tests I had for Lupus was a small skin biopsey on my arm. Both arms have this mottled look(red, brown, blotchy) I thought it was sun damage or hormornes(menopause). The results came back and it said"Lupus compatable). I don't have the butterfly rash on my face, but discolorization on chest and arms. Its a Lupus thing. "

" I get the dark pink on my palms and soles of my feet and the marbled pink and white on my hands, but usually when it's hot or cold..
I had these after chemo, prednisone and cellcept. "
