Our expert says:
Thank you for your question. It's very difficult to make a correct diagnosis without seeing the affected area. By what you have described it could be caused by excessive sweating which creates a perfect environment for bacteria to function in and then can affect the skin and generate the smell. I would suggest that you consult with a podiatrist that could make the correct diagnosis and prescribe a foot spray and possible treatment for your shoes.
