What do red rashes on the face and hands indicate?

Hi, My husband has red blotchy spots on his face and hands. They itch and some appear to be like blisters, but only some. He scraped the one on his hand and some blood came out. His hands feel hard and tight and has some itching in his palms. He has had flu-like symptoms. He had a fever yesterday.

It looks like an allergic reaction.
Some advices that I can give to are:
-Take oral antihistamines daily
-Take prescribed corticosteroids
-Use calming lotion for local relief.
Hope it helps.
Kind regards!
