just recently ive been suffering from severe burning itching on both my hands, the symptoms are very hard to predict and flare up for no reason i can find and its nowhere else just my hands also my hands swell too mainly around the back of my hand below the knuckles. prior to this i did keep getting small red blotches on my palms what i thought looked like pressure sores and when pressed felt like a small scold or burn. all help greatly appreciated.

  • It's really hard to say over the internet. I would begin with blood work from your GP and a referral to a dermatologist--however, you may not be breaking out when you see the dermatologist. It could be a fungus, allergy, hives, lupus or a number of other conditions. Are you taking any meds? It could be an allergic reaction.
