Small child, red burns on palms of hands, recurring condition. Causes and treatment?

My 3 year old has red almost like brns on the palms of her hands. She had the same thing over the summer and i thought it was because of some berries she smushed in her hands. And now they are back. They almost look like burs, but she hasn t touched anything that i know of. I have a doc app for this Friday, but I m a little worried and was wondering if you have heard of any such thing just appearing?
