May be viral or fung: Could be a few things but what comes to mind is a low grade infection such as one that is caused from viral/fungal origin. Typically these are not invasive organisms but if recurrent wold worry about immune function. If you have not had testing for this, you should, as you are at higher risk for other conditions.

Dyshidrosis, also known as dyshidrotic eczema or pompholyx, is an uncommon skin condition in which very small, fluid-filled blisters appear on the palms of your hands and the sides of your fingers. The soles of your feet also can be affected.
