Are you plagued by smelly feet?

Try reducing their pungent odour with these tips from the Mayo Clinic:

  • After you bathe, dry your feet thoroughly.
  • Wear shoes made of natural materials, such as leather. This allows your feet to breathe.
  • Wear cotton or wool socks, which will help keep your feet dry.
  • Avoid wearing the same pair of shoes two days in a row. If your feet sweat a lot, your shoes need time to dry.
  • Change your socks once or twice a day.
  • Air your feet by going barefoot whenever convenient.
