Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Itching to swelling in the palm of one hand can indeed be caused by allergies. This allergy can be triggered by substances that come in direct contact with the skin (allergic contact dermatitis) or also by substances that enter the body through other routes, for example inedible, inhaled, and so on. Itching and swelling can occur due to the release of inflammatory mediators triggered by an error in the immune system detecting the entry of a substance into the body as a dangerous, but in fact it is not.
In addition to allergies, it might also be itchy and swollen in the palm of your hand as your sister experienced from other factors, such as insect bites or other animals, skin infections (for example due to fungi, viruses, mites, or bacteria), irritant contact dermatitis, neurodermatitis , drug eruptions, atopic dermatitis, and so on.
Complaints that have been going on for a long time, that is, for years, should not be underestimated. Immediately consult your sister to a doctor or dermatologist so that her condition can get the best treatment. Some types of tests, such as allergy tests, laboratories, biopsies, etc. doctors can also do if deemed necessary.
In the meantime, you can help your sister deal with her complaints in the following ways:
Apply calamine lotion on itchy hand skin so that complaints are reduced
Don't over-scratch the itchy skin
Elevate swollen hands while sleeping
Avoid substances that can trigger allergies on your skin
Diligent bathing and washing hands with antiseptic soap
Always live a healthy lifestyle
Hope this helps ...
