Blood red bruises on the hands-what is it?

More info, please! Did you hurt yourself? Hold a tool too long? Are you on any blood thinners? How long have you had them? Do they hurt? Obviously, a decent answer is not possible without knowing more, and seeing them. If they are spreading, you have fever, they hurt or you are sick in other ways, go to the ER or call your doc quick.
