Extreme foot odor all my life. Dr. Prescribed hyper care at night and clindamycin phosphate for morning. Hasn't helped at all. What's next?

In brief: Antifungals
If your feet sweat, you need to wear white cotton socks, apply powder in your shoes, and use some kind of antifungal cream.

In brief: Change shoes, etc
Foot odor is usually related to a combination of excess perspiration combined with bacterial overgrowth which is re-contaminated by residual bacteria in socks and shoes.
You can soak feet daily in 10% clorox bleach solution, use an antiperspirant such as drysol, get socks that are treated to retard odor and change often, and get rid of your old stinky shoes.
