For several weeks my 11 year old daughter hands have been very red and swollen, I was told this is a sign of kidney problems?.

At first we thought it was excema, since she does get that on her feet and ankles.  But the cream we use that clears up her feet is not working at all on her hands.  I was planning on waiting until her next doctors visit which is in 4 weeks to ask about her hands since she says they aren't itchy or painful just really red and puffy.  However, I was told that this can also be a sign of kidney problems, so I don't know if I should have her check sooner.  There are no bumps of any kind and the palms of her hands are normal looking.  The redness stops just above the wrist and goes down through her finger on both hands.  Any suggestions?
