Doubt whitlow: I'm sure there must be a number of dermatologic conditions that could cause recurrent of lesions in the same spot. Herpetic whitlows rarely recur, and absence of pain is additional strong against whitlow. See a doctor if you remain concerned.

Dyshidrotic Eczema: It may occur as a single episode but it often runs a chronic course at the same spot. See your PCP for definitive diagnosis and treatment or referral to a dermatologist.
