Dark knuckles are caused by extremely dry skin. From excessive washing to exposure to hot water, harsh chemicals (e.g., household cleaners), and exposure to sunlight without protection all lead to skin dryness. Dark knuckles can also be caused by some skin diseases: such as eczema, psoriasis. Obesity has been known to be a contributing factor to dark knuckles because, among its many problems, being over-weight is harsh on the skin.
