Why are my feet so smelly and what can I do?

Keep Feet Dry. Don't worry so much about the bacteria. Microorganisms like to grow in a moist, dark and warm environment. This includes the fungus that causes athletes foot. Keeping the feet as dry as possible and getting the feet open to the sun and air will help. Some of my patients even use under arm antiperspirant sprays containing aluminum chloride on their feet to help keep them dry.
