I have no other symptoms apart from my palms being red and itchy sometimes? I have astma and an underactive thyroid if this helps?

In brief: Many possibilities
Asthma is associated with atopic dermatitis, which can cause red itchy palms.
But it might be a contact allergy or simple wear and tear from frequent hand washings. It could also be a harbinger of an underlying problem. See a dermatologist.
