Red blotch on the back of hand. Not itchy, not sore. What could it be?

I have a red blotch that appeared on the back of my left hand today. It is not sore and does not itch . it is irregular in shape. I am 30-year-old female and was just at the doctor s earlier today (10am) for a routine check up and the spot was not there at that time. I did get my t-dap at the visit, but the information given does not say any side effects could be this type of rash/spot
