Why's my hand gone red??

I don't know if anyone else has had this, but for some reason the back of my right hand looks like it has been burnt by steam (or maybe wind). It doesn't hurt or itch at all. I've only been cycling for a week- a daily commute of 15 miles each way. There was a pretty good headwind coming home last night so maybe it is windburn, but it's only on one hand. Wierd....
