Palmar erythema: You picked a really complex symptom. Sometimes it also affects the soles (plantar erythema). 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

Allergic reaction: If the rash appeared after taking Ibuprofen and not before, then it can be an allergic reaction to it. Some people develop hives from such medications called nsaids. You may need to take an antihistamine to help you with the rash but I would avoid all nsaids, until you are evaluated by a doctor. If you need to take something for a fever, from now on take Acetaminophen instead. ...Read more
