From Ishpeming, Michigan, USA:

What would cause all of my grandson's finger tips to blister and peel? They do not hurt him, but are sometimes itchy. His doctor gave him cream for this.


Peeling skin on the fingers can be caused by infection, dry skin, a reaction to something he may have touched. It is not possible to tell you with certainty what may have caused his fingers to peel without examining him and getting a more detailed history. I would recommend visiting with your pediatrician.
