Tiny blisters on fingers, could they be a precursor to staph infection?

In brief: Probably pompholyx

If these are small water-like blisters, this sounds like pompholyx ( dyshidrotic eczema ), although fungal infection or other conditions may also be the cause.
Staph is usually associated with yellow fluid/pus. Recommend you see a physician or dermatologist for definitive diagnosis and treatment. Look up "pompholyx" on the web, or try this: http://www.patient.co.uk/health/pompholyx-leaflet
