In brief: You should be seen
This is a complication that is not among the usual things we see after spinesurgery.
It could be many things, but seems most likely to be a medication reaction. When you see visual blistering and peeling on the outside, you don't know what is going on inside your body. Stevens-johnson, for example, is a reaction that can be life threatening. You should be checked. Thank you for the question.

In brief: Drug reaction
This could represent reaction to medications given around time of surgery.
If limited to hands it will resolve. However contact doctor and make him aware of situation because surgeon knows what medicines were given. If itchy see dermatologsot for prescription cream to help condition.
