Brown patches on the hand. What is it?

Seemingly overnight, both of my hands have developed brown patches of spots that have formed between my thumb and index finger . They are not raised not itchy. I haven t changed any diet or environmental factors. It is going on a week now, and I m getting concerned. I am a 25 year old female (no smoking , drinking, or sun exposure).
