Physical activity or day-to-day tasks can keep you on your feet all day. All this movement may be healthful, but one negative byproduct may be foot odor. Excess foot sweat or even certain shoe materials can be the cause. “Some of the main reasons for foot odor are increased perspiration, electrolyte imbalance, shoes made of non-breathable materials, hormonal changes, poor hygiene, and fungal or bacterial infections,” said Dr. Dalia Krakowsky Clausen, a Marshfield Clinic podiatrist.

Poor nutrition also can be a factor. Eating unhealthy foods or certain processed foods can create an unsavory odor. Sweating is a normal body function and usually not cause for concern. However, hyperhidrosis, or sweating too much, can be. Feet that sweat in a shoe that is not breathable can create an environment prone to malodor.
