It is natural for feet to sweat to a certain degree. Unfortunately, for some, the sweating becomes excessive (hyperhydrosis). Sweating is a normal process that allows the body to relieve heat and cool down. The feet have sweat glands just like any other part of the body. When feet become odoriforous, it means that there is bacteria present that is feeding on the sweat.
Treatments for Stinky feet:
- Good Hygiene-wash your feet with antibacterial soap 2-3 times a day
- Never put back on a pair of socks that are dirty
- Have a couple different pair of shoes to wear
If you try these methods and your feet continue to sweat more than normal and have an odor, you should see your podiatrist for additional treatments.
