I have been playing drums for 2 years and i am in a band. I know when you first start out the rubbing of the sticks create blisters.
Some remedies would be put some tape around the sticks or were drummer gloves or just tough it out like i did they will finally caliss over. Also, you might notice your hands being tense and getting stiff; in your spare time rotate your rist or drum on a pad with drumsticks to losen your joints. hope this helps.
