Thanks for these pics --helpful.
This is likely due to a type of eczema.
Dyshidrotic eczema is likely given the predilection in the sweat prone areas.
This will require a potent steroid ointment.
Triamcinolone acetonide 0.1% ointment twice daily for 2 weeks will work better.
Definitely not an infection.
No it is not a fungal infection.
Hence that will not work.
You should see a dermatologist ideally.
And you should request your doctor to prescribe you triamcinolone acetonide 0.1% ointment meanwhile.
Yes they are --in fact more common on palms.
