Bromodosis, or smelly feet, is a very common medical condition. It's due to a buildup of sweat, which results in a bacterial growth on the skin. Even the most fastidiously clean people can suffer from foot odour. Did you know that each of your feet has 250,000 sweat glands and produces about a cup of sweat daily. This perspiration, combined with bacteria, can cause the offensive foot odour. The bacteria that grow on the soles of feet actually produce gases similar to those released by bacteria used in producing cheese; hence the name ‘cheesy feet’.
Sanitizing your feet on a regular basis with a high alcohol content sanitizer is important. Killing the bacterial you can start by using a good Alpha Hydroxy Acid Foot Exfoliator. This can be done in the shower or in the bath. The Spa additive can be added to a foot bowl you place in your shower. Let the water run and stand in the bowl while taking your shower. The Spa additive contains strong anti-bacterial agents that will fight foot odour. Ensure that you also sanitize shoes and expose them to the sun to dry out.
