Reducing foot smells!

Smelly feet are quite a problem, not just for the sufferer but anyone else who has to live with them. The smell from feet is not actually from the feet, but fungi and particularly bacteria that colonise our feet and shoes breaking down our sweat. The smell is called bromodosis.

It’s most common in teenagers and pregnant women due to hormonal changes, but if you have sweaty feet because you sweat a lot (hyperhidrosis) or have athletes foot you are going to be particularly prone.

The key to resolving the problem is cutting off the food supply to the bacteria, and that means reducing sweat and staying clean.

  • Change socks and hosiery frequently, it could need two or more changes in the day
  • Wash your feet in antibacterial soap and use an antibacterial foot deodorant like Gehwol’s after drying
  • Change your shoe daily and allow shoes to dry thoroughly before using again
  • Try applying to your feet in an astringent such as surgical spirit or witch hazel
  • Use a shoe deodorant or foot deodorant spray such as Gehwol’s
  • Wear cotton based socks. Materials such as CoolMax® used in many TOETOE® Socks, is particularly effective in reducing sweat
  • Lift out any insock or insole out of the shoe to dry out which also helps the shoe dry out
  • Go barefoot as much as you can
  • Wear sandals and no socks when weather and environment allows
  • Let your shoes dry out totally and consider using a shoe deodorant between uses

If this still does resolve the problem you can be prescribed a very strong antiperspirant known as an iontophoresis can be prescribed.
