Smelly Feet:

As we live our normal lives we tend perspire to regulate our body temperature.  Most of the sweat just dissipates unnoticed in the air.  But if our sweat does not have a way to evaporate, the moisture builds up.  This is most noticeable on our armpits and in our footwear.  If the moisture is not removed quickly, bacteria begin to eat the sweat and produce the odor we smell.  Keeping our footwear dry is the answer eliminating smelly feet.

Why do my feet smell?

            For most people our feet smell because there is too much moisture built up in our shoes, boots or sneakers.  This excess of moisture continues to grow since most footwear doesnít have a natural way for the moisture to be removed.  With only one opening in most foot ware, air cannot circulate through the garment and the moisture cannot escape.  Fungus and bacteria feed and grow on the excess moisture (sweat) and produce the nasty, smelly, stinky odor we smell. 

How can I prevent my shoes from smelling?

You need to remove the moisture (sweat). 

bulletThis can be accomplished by wearing a pair of moisture absorbing insoles so when your feet sweat, the insoles will absorb the moisture.  You can also purchase charcoal absorbent insoles that will absorb some of the odor.  The only down side to shoe inserts is they need to be changes regularity.  Our Dry Guy boot dryer will completely dry you shoes, boots, or sneakers in less than 3 hours, no inserts needed.
bullet Another way is to change you socks a couple times a day, removing the moisture.
bulletWear footwear that is can circulate air (sandals or open toe shoes)
bulletWear footwear that made of natural material (leather, canvas, etc.)

How do I get rid the stench thatís in my footwear now?

            If you shoes already stink, you can use a negative ion generator to remove the smell.  The shoe or sneaker stink remover bombards your sneakers with negative ions that attach to the odor particles and destroy them instantly.  Our Neo-Tec Shoe Stink Eliminator is an inexpensive, high tech solution to remove odor from your footwear.

People with chronic sweat problems may need to us antibacterial soap to wash their feet a couple times a day.  Removing the bacteria that is feeding on our sweat will help to eliminate the odor we smell.

Smelly (Malodorous) Feet:

Smelly feet can be not only embarrassing but uncomfortable as well. But once you understand the problem, youíll be able to take steps to reduce the odor.

What causes foot odor?

Feet smell for two reasons: you wear shoes and your feet sweat. The interaction between your perspiration and the bacteria that thrive in your shoes and socks generates the odor. So any attempt to reduce foot odor has to address both your sweating and your footwear. The feet and hands contain more sweat glands than any other part of the body (about 3,000 glands per square inch) and provide a ready supply of perspiration. Youíre probably familiar with the phenomenon of sweaty palms, but sweat on your hands doesnít produce the same strong odor as sweaty feet. Thatís because your hands are usually exposed to the air and the sweat has a chance to evaporate.

Feet, however, are trapped inside shoes, where temperatures can easily reach 102 F. The perspiration moisture combines with the dark warmth to create a fertile breeding ground for the bacteria that normally live on our skin. The bacteria produce isovaleric acid, the substance associated with foot odor. The more moisture there is, the more bacteria proliferate, and the greater the odor. Smelly feet can also be caused by an inherited condition called hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, which primarily affects males. Stress, some medications, fluid intake and hormonal changes also can increase the amount of perspiration your body produces.

Preventing foot odor

Fortunately, smelly feet generally can be controlled with a few preventive measures. The American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society recommends that you:

bullet

Practice good foot hygiene to keep bacteria levels at a minimum.

bullet

 Bathe your feet daily in lukewarm water, using a mild soap. Dry thoroughly

bullet

Change your socks and shoes at least once a day.

bullet

Dust your feet frequently with a nonmedicated baby powder or foot powder. Applying antibacterial ointment also may help.

bullet

Check for fungal infections between your toes and on the bottoms of your feet. If you spot redness or dry, patchy skin, get treatment right away.

bullet

Wear thick, soft socks to help draw moisture away from the feet. Cotton and other absorbent materials are best.

bullet

Avoid wearing nylon socks or plastic shoes. Instead, wear shoes made of leather, canvas, mesh or other materials that let your feet breathe.

bullet

Donít wear the same pair of shoes two days in a row. If you frequently wear athletic shoes, alternate pairs so that the shoes can dry out. Give your shoes at least 24 hours to air out between wearings; if the odor doesnít go away, discard the shoes.

bullet

Always wear socks with closed shoes.

 

These preventive measures also can help prevent athleteís foot, which can flourish in the same environment as sweaty feet. However, athleteís foot wonít respond to an antibacterial agent because itís caused by a fungus infection. Use an anti-fungal powder and good foot hygiene to treat athleteís foot.

Treating foot odor

Persistent foot odor can indicate a low-grade infection or a severe case of hereditary sweating. In these cases, your doctor may prescribe a special ointment. You apply it to the feet at bedtime and then wrap your feet with an impermeable covering such as kitchen plastic wrap.

Soaking your feet in strong black tea for 30 minutes a day for a week can help. The tannic acid in the tea kills the bacteria and closes the pores, keeping your feet dry longer. Use two tea bags per pint of water. Boil for 15 minutes, then add two quarts of cool water. Soak your feet in the cool solution. Alternately, you can soak your feet in a solution of one part vinegar and two parts water.

A form of electrolysis called iontophoresis also can reduce excessive sweating of the feet, but requires special equipment and training to administer. In the most severe cases of hyperhidrosis, a surgeon can cut the nerve that controls sweating. Recent advances in technology have made this surgery much safer, but you may notice compensatory sweating in other areas of the body afterwards.

How to cope with smelly feet by Dr Howard Lee

QuestionCould you please tell me how to cope with smelly feet? I have tried all the usual over the counter preparations but nothing seems to help.
 


Answer
Each person has three-four million sweat glands, and at rest loses about half a litre of sweat daily. Sweat is not smelly in itself, but bacteria quickly work on it to produce fatty acids and it's these that have the pungent stale sweat smell.

One of the main causes of smelly feet, which must imply sweaty feet, is wearing the wrong foot coverings or footwear. Shoes with plastic or synthetic fabric linings don't allow sweat evaporation or absorption, so the foot stays wet. Synthetic coverings, like socks, have the same effect. Wear only 60-70 per cent wool with 30-40 per cent man-made fibre socks. Make sure they have a close weave, and not too tight. If necessary you can wear two pairs to increase absorption.

Wash socks in the hottest cycle and rinse in well-diluted antiseptic. Chemical-treated socks can also help. Avoid plastic linings in shoes and avoid wearing trainers for long periods. Remove any dead skin from the soles of your feet, bathe your feet in warm water with tea-tree oil and dry thoroughly. Check between your toes for fungal infections and treat if necessary.

Foot sprays are more effective than powders. Potassium permanganate soaks work well for smelly feet - your chemist can help with this.

Defendant's smelly feet cause court case:

A defendant with smelly feet has accused a Dutch judge of bias after he ordered him to put his shoes back on in court.

Teunis Teun was before a court in Den Haag after ignoring a ban on him going into a public library.

The smell of his feet have forced library users to leave the building several times. He is in the habit of going in and taking his shoes and socks off.

When he did the same in court, the judge ordered him to put them back on. Teun then accused him of prejudice and made an official complaint.

A panel of three other judges must now to sit to decide whether the unnamed judge did show prejudice in Teun's case.

The Het Nieuwsblad newspaper reports that the unemployed 39-year-old is nicknamed Rancid Teun by locals.

He is charged with unlawfully entering the library by violating the ban and could face up to six months in prison.

Teun told the judge: "The only way to get rid of those smelly feet is to wear shoes is little as possible. There is nothing better than giving them some air."

Smelly feet keep suspected dealers out of jail

Two Belgian-based Moroccan men suspected of drug dealing were acquitted because of their smelly feet.

The public prosecutor in Antwerp had demanded eight month prison sentences for the men who had bought boric salts in bulk.

Boric salts are commonly used by drug dealers to cut cocaine before it is sold on the streets, reports Het Laatste Nieuws.

But the men convinced the judge it was also used by the Moroccan community to treat foot odour.

They told the judge their wives had sent them to the chemist because they couldn't stand the stench anymore.

The judge believed the two men and acquitted them.
