Odour & Wetness
There are more sweat glands in the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet than in any other part of your body. Emotion and stress increase sweating. This problem is common and can be very embarrassing. Due to the breakdown of sweat by bacteria and yeasts that normally live on the skin, it may emit an unpleasant odour.
The treatment depends on how much the sweating interferes with your life and on how much you sweat. You also have to consider how well a treatment works for you. Remember that feet with bad odour can also cause bad odour to your shoes. Spraying your shoes with an over-the-counter deodorizer can help.
