How To Get Rid Of Smelly Feet

Embarassed by smelly feet? Dr Gemma Newman advises on the causes and the solutions for smelly feet.

hello I am Dr Gemma Newman and I am a GP and broadcaster and today I would like to help you with a few tips to improve your health . I would like to talk to you about " How To Get Rid Of Smelly Feet" . Now this can be a very embarrassing problem but rest assured everybody's feet sweat and there are few simple things you can do to improve your smelly feet.

Now just a bit of background, as I said everyone's feet sweat , what happens often is when you put your shoes on, your sweat has to get trapped in the shoe and overnight various bacteria and fungi will decompose that sweat, so the next day when you put the shoes on , then your shoes make your feet smell even if your feet are clean. So this moves on to my next point that is how to get rid of it , the shoes are the key , I would suggest that you wear sandals or leather based shoes rather than boots or trainers because these will help to reduce the amount of sweat during the day , it sounds simple but a change of socks is always helpful , so if you're prone to stinky feet then a pair of socks with you and change the socks couple of times a day but obviously at least once a day , what else can you do alternate your shoes and make sure if have very sweaty feet and your shoes have got wet , you make sure they are completely dry before you put them on again , you might want to were different shoes on different days . What else can improve your symptoms well washing your feet daily with water can help and also talcum powder or spirit diped in cotton wool .

This will hopefully reduce sweat overall and reduce the amount of shoes and other important point is to check for fungal infections in your feet , Now this can take of scaly skin or if it is particularly moist between your toes you might get white areas, now it's important to get those treated by medical anti fungal from the pharmacy or if your not sure it is best to see your GP or some thing a little more than that in tablet form. So keep these points in mind . My good luck wishes and I hope your smelly feet reduce!.
