My feet smell!

I’m self-conscious about my feet. I can’t even take my shoes off in front of my friends because my feet smell so bad. Help!

Foot stank comes from sweat glands that secrete substances into the feet and make your feet damp, which causes odor. That fluid also causes yucky bacteria to grow.

Dermatologist Dr. Christopher Nanni of Chelsea Eye Associates in New York says the ultimate culprit to stinky feet are your shoes. “While feet might not smell if your shoes have been off awhile, the bacteria reactivates when it gets wet and hot,” say Dr. Nanni. He says to wash and dry your sneakers, change socks daily (or more if you’re prone to sweating), spray shoes with Lysol and sprinkle with foot powder.

If it’s extreme, use underarm antiperspirant spray. Yep, Secret on your feet. And go for canvas shoes that breathe. Hey, what a great excuse to go shoe shopping!
