Hydrogen Peroxide causing white fingers?

any time i use hydrogen peroxide for anything, and get it on my hands, i end up with these varied patches that turn white. right now, i have part of the print on my index finger totally white, and i can't figure out why it does this? do i have some sort of infection on my skin, that causes it?

I get that (on my fingers) when I use peroxide to put blonde highlights in my hair!! I don't know why but I don't think its anything bad.

Re: Hydrogen Peroxide causing white fingers?

Here's a quote from an article I found while wondering about these white spots that I also get...usually after cleaning my earrings....

"inadvertant skin contact to the more concentrated solutions causes white spots which spontaneously disappear within some hours; the change of color is due to formation of oxygen microbubbles in the skin."
