Frequently Asked Questions
What Causes Foot Odor?
Your feet have more sweat glands per inch than any other part of the body—an average of 250,000 of them. They secrete sweat all the time, keeping your skin moist and supple. When you put your feet in a pair of shoes, the confinement allows fungi and bacteria to thrive. The teaming bacteria produce a substance called isovaleric acid, which emits the characteristic locker room stench associated with foot odor. “The fungi and bacteria, which are a normal part of our skin’s flora, proliferate in the dark, moist, warm environment of the shoes,” says Paul Langer, DPM. “Foot odor tends to be worse in warm weather and in active people.”
About 25% of us have issues with foot odor, according to an American Podiatric Medicine Association survey of 1,700 adults. The key to eliminating foot odor is good foot hygiene.
How to Avoid Getting Foot Odor?
Wash Your Feet Daily: Keep your feet scrupulously clean and use foot powder. Use warm, soapy water and wash your feet every day, says Langer. Scrub gently with a soft brush, even between your toes, and be sure to dry your feet thoroughly
Use Foot Powder: After washing, apply foot powder or cornstarch to help sweating feet stay drier, says Langer.
Sprinkle Your Shoes: Another good method to avoid hot, sweaty feet is to treat your shoes—sprinkle the insides with foot powder or cornstarch, says Suzanne M. Levine, DPM, PC.
Use an Antiperspirant: The key to controlling odor is to use either an antiperspirant or a deodorant on your feet. You can buy foot deodorants or simply use your underarm brand. Keep in mind that deodorants eliminate odor, but they don’t stop perspiration. Antiperspirants take care of both problems. Levine recommends products that contain aluminum chloride hexahydrate.
Don’t use an antiperspirant if you have athlete’s foot, says Stephen Weinberg, DPM, because it will sting. “I recommend roll-on products rather than sprays because most of a spray’s antiperspirant action is lost in the air,” he says. “Use the product two or three times a day in the beginning, then gradually cut back to once a day.”
Change Your Socks Often: Always wear clean, dry socks and use foot powder. Change them when they get sweaty—as frequently as necessary—even a few times a day, says Glenn Copeland, D.P.M.
Avoid Cotton Socks: Cotton holds moisture next to the skin and can make foot odor worse, says Langer. Wool is a better choice because wool fibers wick moisture away from the skin. Synthetic fibers also have wicking properties.
Try Some Metal Threads: There are now socks and insoles available that are made with copper or silver threads woven into the fabric. “Copper and silver have been shown to have antimicrobial properties,” says Langer.
Show Shoe Sense: “Closed shoes aggravate sweaty feet and set up a perfect environment for bacteria to grow, leading to more odor and more sweat,” says Levine. Choose sandals, open-toe shoes, and those with mesh uppers when appropriate, but stay away from rubber and plastic shoes, which don’t allow feet to breathe easily.
Give Them A Day Off: Never wear the same shoes two days in a row, says Levine. Air them out. It takes at least 24 hours for shoes to dry thoroughly.
