Blame it on bacteriafoot odor is a reality for ten to fifteen percent of the population. Bacteria digest sweat and release a gas that can produce a foul odor. Although enclosing the feet in shoes can exacerbate the problem, exposing them during the weather can make the odor even more obvious.
To eliminate or help reduce foot odor, following a regimen to conquer the bacteria can help.
  • Feet should be washed daily with antibacterial soap and dried thoroughly.
  • When socks are worn, they should be of a natural fiber that will absorb any sweat.
  • Shoes should be allowed to dry out in between wearing, and insoles should be cleaned using hot, soapy water.
