Allergic reaction: You may be having an allergic reaction. It could be to something you ate or to something that came into contact with your hands. A new lotion, a new dish soap, a new hand soap etc. If you have some Benadryl (diphenhydramine) it might help. If you start swelling or get any shortness of breath go immediately to the er.
