Foot Care – Foot Odor

 

What causes foot odor and how do I prevent it?

When sweat gets trapped inside your shoe, it combines with bacteria, which can cause a bad smell. (17) To help prevent it:

  • Wash and dry your feet every day.
  • Change your shoes at least once a day and let them air out. Wear shoes made of leather, mesh or canvas that allow your feet to breathe. Avoid plastic or other synthetic shoes.
  • Change your socks daily or throughout the day, if needed.
  • Wear socks made of cotton, wool or other natural fibers to help absorb moisture. Avoid nylon socks.
  • Use foot powders and antiperspirants.
  • Soak your feet in vinegar and water. (18,19)
