Cat, it is usually due to exposure to water or chemicals (or both like in the case of dishwashing water). It might of course also be due to a superficial fungal infection or even eczema. The problem is that i won’t be able to make a diagnosis without being able to examine you first. The easiest would be to see your doctor or a dermatologist and have it sorted out. Good lluck.
