Health Tip: Controlling Foot Odor

(HealthDay News) - Sweaty feet and shoes that don't allow for circulation can lead to fungus and bacteria breeding inside your shoes and socks. These germs can cause an embarrassing odor when you remove your shoes.

Here are suggestions on how to reduce foot odor, courtesy of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons:
  • Wash feet thoroughly each day with soap and water, then dry thoroughly to prevent bacterial growth.
  • Change shoes and socks frequently -- at least once a day.
  • Apply daily a non-medicated powder, like baby powder or foot powder.
  • Check your feet for any signs of fungal or bacterial infection, and treat any symptoms promptly.
  • Wear thick, absorbent cotton socks with shoes.
  • Wear shoes made of breathable materials, like canvas, leather or mesh, and avoid plastic or nylon shoes.
  • Don't wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row.
