What could cause red splotches on the back of my hands?


Answer by  Cecilia (2828)

If the red spots are a new thing it could be a reaction to an irritant. A new detergent, a new cream or something you've been exposed to would cause a red splotch. If they get worse or don't go away soon see your health professional as it might be an infection of some sort.

Paint can cause red splotches on your skin. You may have gotten paint or ink on your skin and did not notice for a very long time and by the time it washed off then you noticed it, hence the splotches. If you are very aware of yourself then your skin may be inflamed.

You may be using a new kind of hand soap or a body lotion that you are allergic to. If you have been using something, stop and see if they go away. If not, it could be a food or other allergy that is affecting your hands. Also, make sure it's not poison ivy.
