We cringe when we smell someone’s feet, some smell are really worse than others. While all feet smells, some have chronic smelly feet, triggered by bacteria feeding on the nutrients from the sweat in the feet and releasing waste that is the origin of the sour and pungent odour. To keep the feet smelling fresh, feet hygiene is important. For some, the simple routine of keeping the feet clean is not enough to prevent the feet from smelling like a garbage truck.
Changing socks and stockings can help preventing smelly feet, cotton socks provides better ventilation and sweat absorption compared to synthetic materials. For chronic sweaters, consider investing in socks that have silver particles embedded. Silver is a substance known to be antibacterial without causing allergies or reactions in the human body. Some companies have weaved in silver particles into socks to help combat smelly feet and bacterial infections that commonly pose a threat in diabetics.
When all else fails, consider seeking medical advice to check if there are any problems that might cause the feet to stink worse than normal people, and look for stronger alternatives to stop smelly feet.
