I have red blotches on palms of my hands the feeling of my hands are really weird texture only started yesterday but hasn't went away.

Sometimes no one can figure out what caused it, after excluding a host of disorders like lupus or cirrhosis, or a drug side-effect (toperamate), or post viral infection, including Rubeola (German Measles). If it doesn't go away in a few days, a trip to your PCP is needed. Skin peeling may occur later. ...Read more
