“My feet sweat so much, it makes them smell badly."
Does this describe your feet?
At Podiatry Station we work with all types of feet, even the smelly sweaty ones! There is usually a reason for the sweaty feet, which can be addressed very easily. Once the cause of the excessive sweating has been addressed, the smell often disappears by itself.
Anyone can get sweaty feet, at any temperature or in any season during the year. Teenagers and pregnant women are more likely to get them because hormonal changes make them sweat more. Athlete's Foot can also result in smelly feet.
You are also more likely to have sweaty feet if you're on your feet all day, wear shoes that are too tight, are under a lot of stress, or have a medical condition called Hyperhidrosis, which makes you sweat more than usual.
