The simple answer is that this could be anything from a vast array of conditions, both known and unknown. It also could just be a natural occurrence; you could have very good circulation. If you keep a healthy and highly active lifestyle it's probably that.
However, let's entertain the possibility of it being other more concerning possibilities. Generally, over-heating is considered a potential neurological problem, but it can also be the common condition 'Carpel Tunnel Syndrome'. This occurs when a tightening of the fibrous bands in the wrist obstruct the hand's nerve supply. A simple reflex test can be performed; tap the underside of the wrist with two fingers. If you feel an electric shock-like effect radiating into your hand then it could be that. A GP or physiotherapist would easily be able to diagnose this.
Another possibility is allergic reaction. This wouldn't be a permanent heat but then there are suggestions that liquid soap contains a chemical that results in a prolonged irritation or burning.
Foods high in sodium (i.e. Salty) can also cause this problem. Drinking more water in the day can counter this, as can cutting down additional salt to food during and after cooking. This lack of fluids in itself can be a factor, so regardless of salt intake - drink more water.
Aside reducing sodium, it could be a deficiency elsewhere. Pantathenic acid (B5) could be lacking, or even Vitamin B12 or Magnesium.
Other less common possibilities include diabetes and, in the case of women, ovulation or perhaps menopause.
If you believe in the metaphysical, it could mean that you have a lot of energy in your hands. You may have a 'healing touch.' I've had hot hands my whole life, my grandfather used to ask me almost every day at grace if I had a fever. I've always been drawn to the 'healing arts,' whether it be nursing, reiki, massage therapy, chiropractic, etc. Others have suggested that a 'scientific' reason for this could be too much sodium in your diet or not drinking enough water. If its new, consult a doctor, if its always been this way then try lowering sodium, drinking more water, or asking a spiritual guide or person you know. :) Hope this helps.

I have the same problem. Read on internet that it could be B-12 anemia. I am a severe anemic. Have forgotten to give myself a shot in the past three months, since I normally only have 1 a month. It took two doses over two days, before the tingling and heat went away, but now I feel much better. Is it possible that you are anemic also?
I have extremely hot hands too! I also think its a plus and have been told that it feels good when I touch people with hot hands. Maybe there is a healing touch... I always warm other's hands up during hockey games and outdoor events (even when they're wearing mittens and I'm not) my hands are always way warmer
I've had hot hands all my life, I think it's a plus. But if it's recent I might consider seeing a doctor.
I have been wondering why I have warm hands I have had them all my life I see it as a good thing coz I always am able to warm parents and friends hands and every one compliments on it especially the girls on a cold day
My palms get hot too and is seems to me it could be reiki
I feel that it is a plus side. For when you massaged someone, the warms hands & some oil can do miracles at what the other person is feeling. Some more I have broad palms which helps as well.
They say its very nice. Big & warm.
There is a condition called carpel tunnel syndrome. This occurs when a tightening of fibrous bands in the wrist obstruct the nerve supply to the hand. A simple reflex test is to tap the underside of the wrist with 2 fingers. If you feel an electric shock like effect radiating into your hand then it could be carpel tunnel. A gp is trained to diagnose these things.
Geeze I have hot hands also! I can melt ice on things in under a minute and my hands are still warm afterwards! People tell me it feels nice when I touch them with my hands.... I don't know why but I think I have healing hands and its very complicated because I'm only 18! Geeze anybody got a way to get rid of the heat? I kinda feel like a freak and thats never good.... Even know I can feel the heat in my hands without touching them sheesh...
Whatever you do,don't use meds for it.ask a doctor for crunches and stuff you should do.
I've always had hot hands, especially after intense physical activity, it seems that my hands are so unbearably hot that I must keep them on cold surfaces. They feel as if they're on fire, hopefully I'll get an answer for this.
I have the same problem too but I'm just confuse if its a healing touch or if its a syndrome, I need to know the truth if I have a healing touch because I would like to use it to help people
You from the North East? I hear they play Hot Palm up there.
If it's a real concern,you should move to a place where it's colder, and simply do not wear gloves.
