What causes foot odor? Here are some interesting facts about smelly feet: With over 250,000 sweat glands, a single foot is capable of putting out a pint of fluid (sweat) a day. This fluid is really just water and salt, which doesn’t have much of an odor. The medical term for sweaty feet is hyperhydrosis . Foot odor is called bromohydrosis. We all have bacteria on the skin and bacteria eats the perspiration. The waste excreted by the bacteria is what causes the odor. Lovely, isn’t it?

What helps reduce foot odor?

1. Always wear socks with shoes. Breathable (cotton) or wicking material is best. (Wicking fabrics absorb fluids.) Without socks, foot sweat basically accumulates inside the shoe, making a lovely petri dish for the bacteria to multiply, putrify, and there are your smelly feet.

2. Change your socks a few times a day if needed.

3. Dr. Katz's Sweet Feet is a powerful oxygenating formula for smelly feet, and is clinically proven to attack not only the smell, but athlete's foot and nail fungus.

4. Put antiperspirant on the feet: Lotrimin AF Athletes Foot Deodorant Spray

5. Try Odor Eaters inserts

6. Wear ventilated shoes

7. Don’t wear the same shoes every day. Let the shoes air out for 24 hours after wearing them.

Be aware there are a few medical conditions that cause excessive perspiration all over the body, such as anemia and hyperthyroidism. If this is not the case, and if you still are bothered by smelly feet despite trying the changes listed above, make an appointment with a podiatrist. You can get a prescription medication.
