Hyperhidrosis, yeast infections, and stress increase sweating, which is very beneficial for odor-causing bacteria.
We have put together several tips on how to get rid of stinky feet once and for all.
Remove The Breeding Grounds For Bacteria:
Most smelly bacteria grow under the nails and on hardened areas of the skin. Don’t forget to clean your soles with a pumice stone when you wash your feet. Take care of your nails and cut them very short.
Wipe Between Your Toes After Washing:
Podologists recommend not only wiping your feet after bathing, but also wiping your toes with a towel to prevent any remaining moisture from being the cause of a yeast infection.
Brew Some Tea For Your Feet:
The tannins contained in tea leaves eradicate bacteria and reduce sweating. You can do these baths every day.
- Prepare 3 teaspoons of tea in 1 liter of hot water.
- Add 2 L of cold water.
- Put your feet up for 15 to 30 minutes.
Apple Cider Vinegar:
An apple cider vinegar poultice will also help eliminate foot odor:
- Mix 0.5 L of vinegar with 200 ml of warm water.
- Dip a piece of gauze in this solution and apply it to your feet for 20 minutes.
- Let the skin dry naturally.
At Home, Walk Barefoot Or Take Off The Socks You Wear Outside:
When you walk, your socks accumulate bacteria from the ground that, when entering a humid environment, begin to reproduce.
Consult A Doctor:
If your feet not only smell bad but also start to itch and peel, see a doctor. These can be symptoms of ringworm, infection, or ringworm (a disease caused by parasitic fungi).
Keep Your Shoes Dry:
It is best to have two pairs of shoes for each season to wear in shifts. If you don’t have a second pair and your shoes are wet, a good old-fashioned method will help: lay down some crumpled papers and they will absorb moisture overnight. Or you can use an electric dryer.
