See a dermatologist: Without being able to examine these it is impossible to diagnose. Have him seen and treated appropriately. One concern for lesions on the palms is syphilis. Go and get evaluated. Good luck.

I agree with Dr. Raff. Odd rashes can represent an odd presentation of Syphilis. Especially if the rash is on the palms of the hands or bottoms of the feet.
