Good Day
Common causes of yellowish discolouration include jaundice, carotenemia. Are you consuming a lot of carrots and/or green leafy vegetables. Does your hand itch. Is there any scaling Is your entire hand homogenously yellow or are there patches of normal sklin colour in between. You will need to consult a Dermatologist in this regard to help rule out the causes of this condition and decide the management.
