I am so embarrassed about my smelly feet! Is there a cure for this condition?

People with "smelly" feet often feel desperately embarrassed about their condition. In extreme cases, there are specialist operations that can be performed to reduce the sweat build-up that causes the problem (bromhidrosis). However, a number of common-sense methods are often enough to control the problem and the Centre offers a comprehensive treatment programme for the condition.

Examples of self-help measures include using strong deodorants on the feet, placing surgical spirit between the toes, using charcoal insoles, avoiding nylon socks and alternating your shoes as much as possible.
