Any doctors about? What is this?

Best photo I could attach...

Recently I've been getting a sudden swelling in tiny areas on my hand and it looks like a scar or burn. It really itches and turns white! The area feels swollen like it's full of fluid but I don't think it is. It only happens in the bathroom on an evening and I'm stumped!

It's clearly some kind of reaction but I can't find anything like it online. Never happened before I had my son (April) whether that's at all relevant.

Please help!

Allergy to something you clean the bathroom with? Air freshener?

Just as simple as that? It's just started happening and I don't really use cleaners for the bathroom. I have special cloths 🤔

It definitely looks like hives. It could be a contact allergen, have you got a new hand soap or cream? Could be something in them causing it. I had a few strange reactions to things after having my DD, apparently it's quite common.
