What causes redness and itching on the hand along with tingling sensation?

Yes, please. So, in the last 4-6 weeks I ve been experiencing an itching in my left hand and it turns red. When I wake up, I find that my hands are tingling or numb. It doesn t happen every day but at least 4-5 out of 7 days. I have to shake my hands and stretch them - hand exercises to get them back to a normal feeling. I have carpal tunnel in both hands as well as arthritis. What might this condition be?
