Question What would cause red swollen hands and feet?

I don't know what subject to put this question under. Is there any medical condition which would cause my hands and feet to get red and swollen at various times? Palms and soles of feet are especially red. Toes are sometimes almost purple after walking. Hands get red when I wash them, even with lukewarm water. I think this started after I had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic about 2 months ago. Do these symptoms sound familiar to anyone?
Thanks, Mary

Could be dermatitis of some sort or Kawasaki disease.

Sounds like a possibility of Raynaud's disease to me.
