Five Things You Can Do to Combat Smelly Feet

Five Things You Can Do ... Smelly Feet

It is not uncommon to have foot odor. Especially during the months when we are constantly covering up our feet with heavy socks and wearing boots.

What kind of socks do you wear?

To prevent stinky feet from starting in the first place, purchase socks and shoes made of breathable materials.

What kind of shoes do you wear?

Shoes made of from breathable material like leather or canvas will allow perspiration to evaporate.

Have you tried insole?

Insoles made with charcoal, silver or copper may help to absorb foot odor.

Have you tried powder?

You don’t want to use typical powder; Look for corn starch or powder that treats athlete’s foot.

Do you go commando?

I know it was “cool” to go sock-less. However, wearing shoes without socks leads to sweating, enabling bacteria to grow, dead skin cells accumulation, dirt, oils, mold and fungus to thrive.

NOTE: If you have tried everything and still there is odor, please make an appointment with Dr. Flo to try a prescription powder.
