How to get rid of smelly feet

Gowrish Babu
The medical term for smelly feet is 'bromodosis'. It’s due to buildup of sweat, which results in bacteria growth on the skin.
Read on these simple tips to fight that pungent smell coming from your feet.
Exfoliate your feet to get rid of dead skill cells to make sure they are smell-proof.
While having a shower every day, make sure you scrub your feet, including in between your toes.
Every time you wash your feet, make sure you towel dry as well because it stops bacteria from building up.
Fungus in your toenails can also contribute to bad smells, so make sure you get a pedicure at a salon or at home at least once a month.
Try to alternate your footwear every now and then because wearing the same footwear for prolonged periods can also lead to a build-up of bacteria and smell.
If you need to quickly cut down on your foot odor, it's safe to apply antiperspirant or deodorant spray to your feet.
Dip your feet in Epsom salt water or vinegar solutions every now and then to tackle bad bacteria in your feet.
