In brief: Rash

This can't be diagnosed with the information that is available.
A history, physical examination & other studies may be needed to determine cause/causes. Once accurately assessed a treatment plan can be developed.

In brief: Several things

Syphilis is well known to cause a rash on the palms, and may also present with systemic signs/symptoms such as the ones you are describing.
Psoriasis may also present like this, particularly if the hand rash looks like pustules (little bumps filled with pus). I would go see a physician as these two are very treatable conditions.
