You change your smelly socks
at least once a day. Your shoes are well kept. But in spite of
all this, your feet stink. Sometimes the condition is so bad
that by simply removing your shoes, people around you know that
you have smelly feet. The condition can be embarrassing, especially
in public. By following some simple tips, you can take care of
your feet and avoid the problem of smelly feet.
The common home remedies for
foot odor are:
Apply tea to the area:
Using a soak made from tea bags and applying it to your feet
will eliminate the problem of smelly feet. This is because the
tannic acid from tea tans the skin. Take a couple of tea bags
and boil them in a pint of water for 15 minutes. Then remove
the tea bags and pour the pint of this strong, hot tea into a
basin or a large pot and fill it with two quarts of cool water.
Soak your feet for 30 minutes daily for seven or ten days and
you will not experience the problem any longer.
Use acne remover: If your
feet really stink very badly, you suffer from toxic sock syndrome.
In this case, you should look at your soles. If they are whitish
in colour with tiny pits, you are suffering from the condition
called pitted keratolysis. The microorganism that causes this
condition is the same one that causes acne, you can use over-the-counter
acne medication with 10 percent benzoyl peroxide.
