Q

Sweaty & smelly foot

There are approximately 250,000 sweat glands in the feet, while there are 72,000 sweat glands on the hand. The number of sweat glands in the feet is 3 times that on the hand. Therefore, having a sweaty foot is very common, but it may enhance the growth of bacteria. Foot sweat and odor problems will worsen in the following situations:

- Excessive exercise
- Anxiety and tension
- Spicy foods
- The thick layer of dead cells on the foot skin triggers the growth of the bacteria and can when the individual sweats they can experience an embarrassing odor
- Wearing socks or shoes made out of poor materials, such as non-cotton socks, synthetic shoes; bacteria is easily trapped inside these types of footwear
