Small, itchy patch on right palm. Pink bumps inside, bad allergy, sneezing. What is this?

For the past week, a small, itchy patch about 3/4" in diameter has appeared on my right palm. There are maybe 8 tiny bumps in it and it's slightly pink in color. Coincidentally, I have had bad allergies with severe sneezing for the past week. This has never happened before and I'm 34 years old. I can get the allergies under control, but what could the spot on my hand be?

Dermatologist 's  Response
There are many different reasons which causes itchy bumps on the palms.The most common of the reasons are:
4.Coxsackie infection
Since i presume you are having pompholyx,I would suggest you take antihistaminic tablet to control the itching.You can also try cold compress along with topical steroid cream.If the symptoms dont subside in 1week,kindly consult your dermatologist for complete examination and treatment.

Hope it helps,
