Question spots on my hands

Have any of you seen this? On my right hand, several months ago, I had a "spot" come up on the top of my hand between and just below my first two knuckles. It came up very fast and is about the size if two straight pin tops put together. At first it was dry, very itchy and the same color as my skin. Then began to turn somewhat dark pink over the next couple of days. It stopped itching then and has remained the same ever since.

Now, two days ago, the same thing happened again on the same hand on top just below my thumb knuckle. Dry, itchy a couple of days. Now I'm just waiting for it to change colors like the other one did.

Do any of you have this and is it something I should be concerned about? The same hand has felt very "arthritic" all day as well in the finger joints and wrist, but I'm not really conviced that they're in any way related.

could be contact dermatitus. i am not sure exactly what the spot looks like, but u could have come in contact with something and had an alergic reaction. u may just pay attention to the things u touch and see if anything new has been introduced since u got the first spot. contact dermatitus usually lasts about six months(the spots). just an idea could be something else.
