    I’ve got some great (terrible) pics of my feet and how I’m treating it now. Discovered it’s not a fungus, but rather a bacterial infection. Changed my treatment from antifungal to Bactroban (anti-bacterial). That coupled with baby powder on my feet, has given amazing results. Only 1 week in now, but I thought good to share.

    I have this and have only discovered what it is from reading this website.

    It started off itchy and looked brownish like dry skin and the pharmacist told me to moisturize. Now I have the little smelly dotts.

    I have some pictures if you are Interested

        I dont know of I have PK but I would like to upload some pics to figure out what it is I have on the palms of my feet. I went to a foot doctor and he told me they were warts however it looks like it could be PK.

    Hello! I do hope others who are diagnosed can share more pics. I haven’t been diagnosed with PK but I do have a foot malodor. I have dry, thick skin under my feet (especially under the metatarsal joints and toes but not sure if it’s PK or something else. I checked mine and no small, round thing from what is seen above. So if you’re diagnosed with mild forms, please do share your pics. Thanks!

    I have got PK and my feet get so boiling hot at night where they are affected. It only seems to come on in summer when i wear thongs and i am thinking that it may be the rubber of my thongs or synthetic shoes. My feet never have an odour though, just look and feel gross and really hot! I moisturise every night and put an aloe gel on to cool them down before bed.
    It took me ages to actually find out what it was and now i am happy i finally do know. I have some bactroban and will continue to use it and hopefully it will go away soon!

    i have a really severe case of this at the moment, im gettin treated and its not sooo bad but its been a hell of alot worse, especially working at the olympics 14 hrs a day in boots… il get a picture shortly and upload it though to see a bad case. iv been given mycota foot powder from the medical centre and some hydrocortisone a mild steroid to apply once a day hopefully it will do the trick.

    I have uploaded 2 pics of my feet (last 2 images on here) I work long shifts in safety boots!
    Doc said it was fungal and prescribed anti fungal tablets fluconazole and a anti fungal cream.. It Didn’t work! I went back and showed doctor this site and he agreed it was pk.. Been given 2 tubes fusidic acid cream and also some 20% aluminium chloride roll on liquid.. Have also invested in some sandals and new leather safety shoes! Hope it works! will post again after treatment!

    I remember having this as a teen. I didn’t know what it was and didn’t like it. Sometimes it was bad sometimes it was mild. One day I git tied of looking at it, so I used a pumice stone and sharp knife to remove all that I could. I did this numerous times until it just never came back. I don’t remember how long it took but ten years have gone by without it ever coming back. I was always curious about what it was. Now I know, by the way I don’t recommend the sharp knife, and take it easy on the pumice or your feet will be super sensitive.

    Hi, I`m jennifer and i have a very mild case of pk that i know from looking it up once i discovered it. I`m currently treating it. I work a 10 hour shift at a drug store every night, continuously on my feet walking around. I was wondering if blood spots on the feet in the infected and surrounding areas are normal for pk? I`m worried because i seem to have developed alot of them overnight, some being very noticable. I`m starting to think, that its because I`ve damaged the nerves/muscles in my feet from the constant excessive walking. I only ask because it only showed up right after the pk did and some of the pictures on here have little blood spots on them too. Any answers as soon as possible would be very helpful as i wish to treat it immediately. I just dont want to damage the nerves/muscles in my feet to the point where I cant work anymore. Please and thank you!

    My other half suffers with this a mild case of it, to which he is on his feet all the time he wears boots for work which i would understand can cause so much sweat, he wears cotton socks to which the doctor told him to wear that could help and gave him some roll on stuff but this doesn’t seem to be working if anyone has anything in mind they could tell me about to help it would be much appreciated! :-)

    Hi ive had this awhile and its really bad atm I went doctors and they told me it would go but its got alot worse and is getting painful I change my socks twice at work and even my shoes at lunch no positive affect what do you recommend can I go to a specialist or anything??

  • James

    I have had this on and off for years, I work outdoors in all weathers wearing not very waterproof shoes and this always comes up when I get wet feet and don’t change into dry socks and shoes straight away. One year it got so bad I thought the skin was falling off my feet. However, with talcompowder and lots of air (sandals on my days off) it goes away again. First treatment is to look after your feet, then anti bacterial stuff.

    Hi iv not been diagnosed been to doctors loads treating for fungal for 3/4 years since viewing this site I now know it’s defo pk I have pics how do I upload it’s very smelly and embarrassing I’m so glad I came across this site

    I had this for years. Did multiple courses of antibiotics, tried the apple cider vinegar, and even used a knife to scrape off all the dead skin.

    I think the thing that eventually cured it was bicarbinate of soda powder. I put this on my feet, and in my shoes, and it cleared up fairly quickly. I think the bicarb changes the ph environment which kills the infection. Really worked wonders (putting it under your arms after a shower or bath totally removes bio odour the next day by the way).

    Hope this helps someone out there.

    has anyone heard of using colloidal silver?

  • Pitted keratolysis is not a fungus, so I used anti-bacterial face wash( for the bacteria) on my feet when I showered and blow dryer them afterwards, then I DOUSE my feet and toes in baby powder while they are still pruned from the water, and use white cotton socks only, I swap my shoes every day and KEEP MY FEET DRY, so far my PK has reduced and is returning to healthy skin! ;)
