Foot Odour and Wetness

How can I treat and prevent foot odour and wetness?

The easiest way to treat and prevent sweaty and smelly feet is through some simple lifestyle changes:

  • Practice good foot hygiene:

    Wash your feet every day with soap and water, and dry thoroughly between your toes.

  • Wear shoes made of natural materials:

    Leather and other natural fabrics “breathe” better than synthetics.

  • Wear socks made of wool, acrylic, or polypropylene:

    These fabrics help wick moisture away from your skin.

  • Rotate your shoes:

    Change them daily to give each pair a chance to dry out before you wear them again.

  • Change your socks often:

    Changing them daily, or even more, helps keep your skin dry.

  • Change your insoles:

    If they become moist, bacteria and fungus can thrive in them.

  • Soak your feet in a bath:

    Try diluted black tea or vinegar and water to help reduce foot odour.

  • Air out your feet:

    Go barefoot when you can.
