Foot Odor Management

Foot odor, or bromodosis, can often be managed by following a few simple steps. It often results from sweat buildup, which fosters bacterial growth on the skin. Fungal infections, like athlete's foot, can also contribute to foot odor. The feet should be kept clean and dry. Toenails should be trimmed and cleaned. Dead skin can be removed by using a foot file to prevent bacterial growth. Socks should be changed daily or more often if an individual sweats heavily. It is also helpful to rotate shoes, allowing them to dry completely between uses. If you have severe foot odor that does not respond to good everyday foot care, it is suggested that you schedule an appointment with a podiatrist for stronger remedies to address the issue.

Everyday foot care is very important to prevent infection and other foot ailments. If you need your feet checked, contact one of our podiatrists from Foot Doctors of Utica. Our doctors can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Everyday Foot Care

Often, people take care of their bodies, face and hair more so than they do for their feet. But the feet are a very important aspect of our bodies, and one that we should pay more attention to. Without our feet, we would not be able to perform most daily tasks.

It is best to check your feet regularly to make sure there are no new bruises or cuts that you may not have noticed before. For dry feet, moisturizer can easily be a remedy and can be applied as often as necessary to the affected areas. Wearing shoes that fit well can also help you maintain good foot health, as well as making it easier to walk and do daily activities without the stress or pain of ill-fitting shoes, high heels, or even flip flops. Wearing clean socks with closed shoes is important to ensure that sweat and bacteria do not accumulate within the shoe. Clean socks help to prevent Athlete’s foot, fungi problems, bad odors, and can absorb sweat.
