Hi,
It seems you are having a type of hand and feet eczema known as pompholyx. In pompholyx you get tiny pin point itchy blisters over palms, soles and sides of fingers and toes. To treat the same, apply a steroid based cream, use a good moisturiser and if its too itchy then an oral antiallergic like cetirizine. Hope that answers your query. Take care.
