In brief: Multiple things

Red rash on palms along with joint pain and stiffness could be due to multiple disorders-you should see a rheumatologist.
Keratoderma blennorrhagica, a rash on the palms and soles of the feet, is seen with reactive arthritis. This arthritis is typically associated with eye pain and pain urinating. It can be associated with HIV infection. Chlamydia can also cause rash on palm with hand arthritis.
