Pitted keratolysis

Pitted keratolysis

Pitted keratolysis is a bacterial skin infection  typically of the soles of the feet. It is characterised by whitish skin with clusters of punched-out pits, and resulting in smelly feet. The bacteria proliferate in moist conditions. The pitting is due to destruction of the stratum corneum by protease enzymes produced by the bacteria.The bad semell is due to sulfur compounds produced by the bacteria. By:
