Foot odour is a type of body odor that affects the feet of humans and is generally considered to be an unpleasant smell. The main cause is foot sweat. Sweat itself is odorless, but it creates a beneficial environment for certain bacteria to grow and produce bad-smelling substances. These bacteria are naturally present on our skin as part of the human flora. Therefore, more smell is created with factors causing more sweating, such as wearing shoes and/or socks with inadequate air ventilation for many hours. Hair on the feet, especially on the toes, may contribute to the odor's intensity by adding increased surface area in which the bacteria can thrive. The following treatments may be useful, depending on the cause of the problem: Topical (applied to the skin) or oral (by mouth) antibiotics may be prescribed, in severe cases, to kill off the bacteria. Mild antiseptic solutions or soaps can be useful. Light powders can help to absorb some of the moisture on the sole of the foot. Methylated spirits applied once or twice a day can help dry the skin. Avoid synthetic socks and wear shoes that provide good air circulation and allow the foot to breathe.
