Painful, plaque-like, pitted keratolysis occurring in childhood.
Pitted keratolysis is a superficial infection of the soles of the feet that is almost always asymptomatic. A painful variant of this disorder was reported to occur in adult males during military service. We report painful, plaque-like, pitted keratolysis in two children. Treatment with topical erythromycin was curative.
