How To Get Rid Of Stinky Feet The Easy Way

Updated on October 20, 2011

How to get rid of stinky feet

Thankfully, I’m not one of them, but there are plenty of people in the world that would love to know how to get rid of stinky feet. Most likely their friends and partners would too!

It is an embarrassing problem especially when visiting people or religious grounds that require the removal of shoes – they sometimes wish they didn’t!

There can be a number of reasons for stinky feet; the most basic of these is just a lack of hygiene, insufficient showers and regular change of socks! A change of shoes from time to time doesn’t hurt either as odors will build up. A change of shoes at least yearly is almost a must, but every 6 months is recommended by many podiatrists.

However it is more difficult to know how to get rid of stinky feet if the problem is caused by a medical condition such as athelete’s foot. This is a fungal disease which also causes toenail fungal infections. This infection often spreads to the skin. Anyone who has had the misfortune to encounter the smell that athelete’s foot can produce will certainly not forget it in a hurry!


Treat Stinky Feet

Thankfully, it is relatively easy to treat and many over the counter products can be bought which will help with this. Natural remedies too may help and tea tree oil is often suggested although this tends to work better on nails and may even cause irritation of the skin if not used properly.

The best method however is prevention. This will avoid the need to learn how to get rid of stinky feet by preventing it in the first place.


Prevent The Onset of Stinky Feet

The main ways to prevent it are to keep your feet dry as moisture is a great place for fungus to thrive. Sometimes of course it may be difficult for example if it is raining, but if your feet do get wet, dry them and change into clean socks as soon as possible.

Make sure that you wash your feet regularly as this will prevent any build up of bacteria which may lead to athletes foot.

Do not share anything that may spread the fungus such as towels, socks or even shoes.

Any finally but especially, always ensure that you wash your feet after being in public changing areas such as gyms, swimming pools or public showers.

If you follow these guidelines your feet should smell, if not fresh, then certainly a lot sweeter than if hygiene is ignored and you won’t have to figure out how to get rid of stinky feet ever again.
