  • ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS SHARES SOME INFORMATION REGARDING THE TREATMENT AND CAUSES OF BROMHIDROSIS (SMELLY FEET)

 

 

 

 

 

 
Podiatrist, Dr Emily Splichal, DPM, states, why do feet smell and how can I remedy this condition?  The noxious scent comes when sweat mixes with bacteria on your feet. After your daily wash, sprinkle on a foot powder to absorb excess moisture, leaving bacteria little to feast on. Or, if you've got time, brew some black tea and, once it cools, do a 10-minute foot soak every day for a week, which will shrink the sweat glands.  If your feet sweat excessively (aka hyperhidrosis, meaning you're perspiring through socks), ask your podiatrist for a prescription foot antiperspirant. Botox injections can also help, if you can stand them. They require literally 100 injections per foot, which is not fun. It can cost up to $1,000 and isn't covered by insurance, but it will keep you dry for three to six months."
