    R Swamy Venuturupalli, MD, FACR responded:
    Inflammation from arthritis could give you red palms. A condition called erythromelalgia, seen in autoimmune diseases, can cause redness and swelling and pain. It can be managed by keeping cool, aspirin, gabapentin, biofeedback etc. Other possibilities exist. Check with your rheumatologist. All the best.
