Pigmentation on hands?

Hi, a few months ago I noticed on my elbows there was rough, scaly skin, itchy at times and on my hands there was a teeny weeny bit as well. I went to my Family Physician, he diagnosed it as ezcema, told me to use the cream on my hands as well. 2 months later my hands have gotten worse. What happens is that I had a few really small tiny white specs/spots and over time they slowly grew, and in that area of the skin has turned light brown/pink. I have brown skin to start with. Now these tiny white spots are all over the outside of my hands, they start off like white specs, and slowly in a few days the white specs go away and turn into light brown.... seems like pigmentation, I went to my family Dr, and he got me an app.t wth a Dermatologist, went to the Derm. and he took a skin biopsy, said its a really difficult job in treating this kind of thing. He said to wait for the results. Any idea what it may be?
