Smelly Feet (Bromhidrosis)

Bromhidrosis, the medical name for smelly feet, can occur even if you are not sweaty or exercising and it doesn’t just affect teenagers. The problem is actually caused by increased sweating and the excreted waste products of bacteria and fungus that live in your shoes.

These micro-organisms not only smell bad, causing frequent embarrassment, but can lead to athlete’s foot, onychomycosis(fungal toenails), itchy blisters and other rashes from fungus, and potentially serious infections in diabetics and other immunosuppressed people.
