Hello and welcome to HCM,

A patch on palms can occur due to many causes.
Viral infection or primary skin infection are one of the common causes for such a rash.
Is the rash associated with itching?
Rash associated with itching can be due to fungal infection.
A number of skin diseases are associated with spreading rash of this kind.
Viral infection, psoriasis, para-psoriasis, eczema are some of the disease processes which can cause rash of this type.
A skin biopsy is required to diagnose skin lesion causing the rash.

Thanks and take care
