Rust-colored stains on hands (pics)

Earlier this week I woke up and noticed some brown/reddish stains on my hands....they did not wash off but eventually faded away.  I was curious about it, but didn't think too much about it.  Now, this morning I woke up with the same thing (only worse).  It is only on my left hand...nothing at all on my right hand.  I tried to wash it off with hand soap, dish soap and finally rubbing alcohol.  None of them did a thing. 

My mom is a nurse and I called to ask her about b/c she knows about all kinds of weird medical stuff - she was surprised and said "The SAME thing happened to me on Tuesday!" - we thought about it, and the last time she was at my place was last week Thursday (so we are ruling out a common factor of my place).

I did a google search about it, and I'm not alone - other people have had this happened (peculiar that many notice it in the morning), but there are just questions on-line, no answers.

Has this happened to any of you???

I also noticed just slight bit of discoloration on the back side of my right hand, and a couple spots on my right back forearm.  Not nearly as noticable, but if you look hard you can see it.  WTH???

 I get little spots. I will notice a rust mark on my leg or arm, but it will not wipe off. Again, though, my spots are so small, I never really thought twice about it. Maybe I should think twice about them? lol
