Suggest treatment for small brown spots on the hand

I have a bunch of tiny light brown spots on my hands located between my thumb and index finger. I have had them for about 3 days now and there seems to be no change in their appearance since I first noticed them. They are not raised at all nor are they itchy. I haven t had increased sun exposure (I m sure they are not freckles. I don t get freckles) and I have also had no change in diet or environmental conditions recently. Also no trauma has occurred to that area. I was wondering if it could be some sort of fungal infection or something like that. Also, I am allergic to antibiotics and was wondering if that will be an issue/hinderance if this is something that needs to be treated. Thank you so much!

Welcome to healthcare magic.

from your history and description, I would consider the possibility of palmar warts.

They could look brown and flat when they initially appear.

Hope this helps you.

Take care.
