In brief: Not sure

Sorry to say I cannot think of a reason, since the rest of your body does not itch.
I would see a dermatologist with a specialty in immunology.

In brief: Hand eczema is

commonly made worse by exposure to hot water and hot showers.
Try taking cooler showers, and apply some hydrocortisone or even aquaphor that should help
