In brief: Try Drysol

Ask a doctor for a prescription for drysol to reduce the perspiration.
Wear socks that wick moisture away from your skin. Running socks from a sporting goods store work well. Don't wear cotton ones. "dryfit" is the best. Rotate your shoes. Park your shoes in the closet for a month and wear other ones to let the fungus etc. In the shoes dissipate. Spray your shoes with foot odor powder regularly.

You can also consider a consultation with a Chinese Medicine practitioner. There are imbalances leading to this issue and Chinese Medicine and herbs are very effective in balancing the body and thereby improving/resolving your symptoms.

In brief: Feet smell

Baking powder in your sox or shoes will reduce smell.
Try antiperspirant on feet, same as used under arms.

Chinese herbs are a waste of money. Antibacterial soaps are no more effective than other soaps. That's the true facts. Most foot odor is from bacteria, not fungi.

In brief: Sweaty smelly feet

Although it is a good idea to let your shoes dry , this does not dissipate fungus.
These are spore forming organisms that can survive 6 to 9 months without host contact. See your podiatrist for a product that you can spray in your shoes to kill fungus and bacteria. That will help . additionally hygiene plays a huge role here - washing with an antibacterial soap helps too.
