Why do my feet smell?

With over 250,000 sweat glands in your feet, it might seem obvious as to why your feet smell, but there is more to the story than just sweat. Sweat is actually odorless, but when it comes into contact with the bacteria that can be found on anyone’s skin, an odor is produced. Some feet could produce as much as a pint of sweat in a day, so there is ample opportunity to mix with the bacteria and release the scent.

If you want to prevent smelly feet, there are several steps you can take. Wash them with soap and water daily and then dry them thoroughly. Wear fresh socks. Alternate between two different pairs of shoes every other day. Wash your socks inside out. Spray inside your shoes with a disinfecting spray.

At Sugar Land’s Foot & Ankle Associates, we don’t care how badly your feet smell. Our goal is simply to provide the superior foot and ankle care that you deserve—including treating food odor. If you have any questions or need treatment, call (888) 784-5335 and make an appointment with Dr. Marco Vargas today.
