Brief Answer:
inflammation due to allergic response

Detailed Answer:
hello and welcome,

your history suggests that you have had an allergic reaction to an allergen in your environment. As its localized to your hands it could be a new detergent , chemical.
it could also be a drug reaction or an insect bite. think over the possible cause.

The cause cant always be isolated. I would advise anti histamines like Benadryl to take now to reduce the swelling and itching. I would also like you to change your current clothes and clean yourself with lukewarm soap water to prevent any bug from causing more damage.

let me know if you have any query.
if not kindly close the conversation and rate the answer.
thanks.
