Possible Allergic Reaction

I am not sure but I have been trying to figure it out for quite sometime. About a year ago I obtained a job at a subway and started noticing my fingers begin to swell, become red, skin started peeling, and open sores. Well once I left that job it cleared up after about a week or two. I recently got a job at a quiznos and started to notice the same thing occuring again. However, I noticed that when I am cutting up tomatoes the itching and redness as swelling becomes worse. If I wash my hands off with warm soap and water this stops. Could this possibly be an allergic reaction to tomatoes or is it something else. I have been checked for psoriasis and eczema and both came up with no results. I have also been told that I needed to get checked for possible lupus since it does run in my family. However, I do not have many of the signs. If anyone could help solve this mystery it would be appreciated.
