Smelly feet

This is a condition that affects many of us at some point in our life, indeed it is normal for your feet to sweat, but when the problem becomes smelly, it can be embarrassing. Try to ensure that you wear natural materials closest to your skin, i.e. cotton socks rather than nylon tights/stockings, and leather-lined, in addition to leather upper shoes. Whenever it's appropriate, try not to wear anything on your feet, to allow the fresh air to get to them.

In some cases the odour is caused by a bacterial infection, and the podiatrist can advise on this and other ways to eliminate the offensive smell.
