Have black spots on hands. Cause and cure?

last week I noticed a few small black spots on my two hands. I thought it was black ink from the photocopier at work but the next day, I noticed more had come between my fingers, back of my hand, different parts of my hands and even a tiny one on my face. Some said it had something to do with silver. What exactly does that mean? I really want to get the the root of the question as to where it came from. Then, treating it. Its like specks of black ink embeded in your skin and the after more than a week, they raise to the surface as a scab like and you can pick it off. It s weird and paculular as to what it is. Please help me find answers for this?

It is difficult to guess from your history. However I think if you are past 40 or so it could be a seborrhoeic keratosis, which could be due to sun exposure or light exposure. As more lesions are occurring it is better to confirm the diagnosis from your local doctor. It may need simple surgical treatment of application of some ointments like 5 fluro uracil cream along with a sun screen in the day time.
