Hi . greetings. You have pitted keratolysis. This is caused by bacterial colonisation of - clostridium minutissimum. It's not serious but can cause foul odor and rarely other infections. Will require a course of topical anti biotics and benzoyl peroxide based washes. Please see a dermatologist near you for prescription of the medications. Warm regards Dr Govind S Mittal, excel care hospital, Bangalore.
