Smelly feet or foot odour is a common foot condition that often is a source of embarrassment for the patient. It is caused by excess bacteria associated with excess perspiration or sweat. Bacteria thrive in dark, moist warm environments therefore feet that perspire excessively and feet that are trapped in closed environments for long periods are more prone to foot odour.
Treatment for smelly feet or foot dour at our Melbourne clinic focuses on eliminating the causative factors. This generally involves preventing perspiration and bacteria build up on the feet. Our podiatrists can assess your smelly or perspiring feet and advise you on the best treatments to help combat foot odour.
