Blistery rash, red & swollen all over hands. Starting to spread up wrists & on feet. Very itchy. Is it an allergic reaction?

In brief: Allergic reaction

It sounds like it.
YOu may need some medicine for this asap. See a doctor or perform a virtual consult. A picture would help as well

In brief: Likely, yes!

Try benadryl (diphenhydramine) and hydrocortisone ointments but be prepared to get to an ER if the spreading continues and threatens breathing.
Or if you have sudden diarrhea or more swelling. Extreme hives can be like a forest fire flare up. consider having a epipen for emergencies if this has ever happened before. Best!
