Brief Answer:
not likely

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

One of the images sent is of the veins in the hand/arm, which are normal in appearance.
The rash seen in the images does not point to a blood cancer. Blood cancer is not a common cause of skin rash at all.

By blood cancer, assuming that you are leukemia or lymphoma. They would be associated with fever, weight loss, decreased appetite, night sweats, infections, weakness, bleeding.

The most common reason for red itching skin is allergic reaction.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
