The Doctors TV Show did a segment called “Why Do I Itch & Smell That Way?” and one topic they covered was Stinky Feet. Bacteria causes foot odor, much like bacteria causes Bad Breath. The Drs TV Show gave some great tips to prevent foot odor and Smelly Feet!
The Doctors: What Causes Smelly Feet?
The Doctors said that as bacteria feed on the dry skin of your feet, the bacteria “farts” and the foul smell is actually the bacteria’s farts and not actually your feet!
The Doctors: Smelly Feet Home Remedy with Baking Soda
The Doctors had a lady named Yvonne on the phone and she says that her husband has the worst smelling feet, so being from Georgia, she came up with the best Stinky Feet Home Remedy which is Baking Soda. You just sprinkle baking soda in your shoes to get rid of foot odors. The Doctors said that the Sodium Bicarbonate, or Baking Soda, helps to neutralize the acidic environment. You can also choose to wear breathable socks with moisture-wicking properties to keep your feet from sweating, because the bacteria lives off of the sweat that your feet produce. Some other Stinky Feet Tips from The Doctors include changing shoes daily and avoiding rubber shoes and nylon socks. Here are some more home remedies that use baking soda: Chapped Lips Home Remedy, Flawless Skin Home Remedy and a Teeth Whitening Home Remedy.
