If you had sepsis you would be cold, have decreased blood pressure and feel very tired or fatigued. Red spots on your hands does not indicate sepsis and they are too light or small for me to be able to see in this photo. My guess is it is a minor skin irritation that caused these.

See the doctor about it, to me it doesnt seem like much to worry about.
