Bacterial Infection Treatment - Physicians      

 

Pitted Keratolysis

This is most commonly seen on the undersurface of the feet. It is common. Well defined erosions are seen on the surface of the skin. This appears to be because the bacteria eat away at the keratin surface of the skin producing small craters and erosions. There is no inflammation associated with this. It usually does not produce any symptoms.

Treatment:

Usually drying the skin with anti-perspirants can be very beneficial Topical antibiotics can also be of benefit.
