Pain in hands/wrists but nowhere else.

I've started weightlifting after years of absence and I notice when I lift my dumbbells the following day my wrists are in quite a bit of pain. I usually do about 15-20 reps with my dumbbells, so they can't be too heavy. I'll take a 2 day rest to wait for my wrists to fully recover but even that...
