What causes mottled red palms?
I would kindly wihs to ask for a second opinion, as I get an answer from HealthCareMagic (for which I'm grateful) but also a conflicting opinon from another source.
The palms of my hands, especially the left one, get a kind of mottled-red appearance. It's a permanent pattern but never seen when I lay in bed, mostly subtle indoors and mostly seen outdoors. I may had it for a long time but less pronounced. I don't have any reticular changes on any other part of the body. I was wondering if it is livedo reticularis or Bier spots or some palmar erythema or just my natural circulation pattern. It may be worth of not that I am in a fairly stressful moment in my life and that I have lost (through changes in diet, willingly) ca. 66 pounds) in the last 7-8 months.

Could be due to unequal blood flow
Hello. Thank you for writing to us
I am dr.kakkar(dermatologist). I have gone through your query and i have reviewed the images.
This mottled pattern could be due to reduced blood flow on the affected side. I suggest you to measure pulse rate and blood pressure of each limb seperately.
Also I forgot to add that the redness may be somehow more pronounced in warmer temperature.
Any associated symptoms
Do you have any symptoms like burning? Itching? Pain?
This could be a manifestation of contact urticaria. You may try an oral antihistamine e.g cetrizine 10 mg once daily for a few days and see how it goes. Follow up with me after a few days.
