Brief Answer:
Seems to be due to eczema

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using the Ask a Doctor service.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. I have checked the attached image. It seems to be a case of eczema. You also need to apply some emollient like calamine lotion or some moisturizer like aloe vera lotion over those areas. Such allergic rashes can develop due to a number of allergens other than the ones you mentioned. But more importantly, it is important to refrain from letting the hands stay wet. I need to ask whether you have got a blood allergy profile done (earlier) to get the allergens identified. As of now you may use some antiallergics like Cetirizine once daily for the next few days.

It might take a few days to recover and so you need to be patient.

Let me know if I could help further.
