What Does A Stress Rash Usually Look Like
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation.

Rule out low thryoid: You should see a doctor to have your thyroid checked and find out what the rash is. If s/he thinks you are depressed or nervous, s/he may treat you or refer you to a psychologist or psychiatrist depending on the severity of the situation. Most psych conditions, even if brought on by a physical problem, respond best to a combination of therapy and medications, especially medications if severe.

Gave birth in a "birthing center". During labor, I saw my hands full of rashes. After deliver, nurse said "you're having allergies if your stress"?
Stress can absolute: -ly cause rashes. But the fact that it was only on your hands suggests to me either you had an exacerbation of an underlying hand eczema which could certainly be initiated by stress, or you were exposed to something in the center that caused a contact dermatitis or also exacerbation of underlying hand eczema. See derm for absolute answers. For now use thick ointments like aquaphor to protect hands
