Are there home remedies for smelly feet?

If you have a condition that is causing unpleasant foot odor, you will be pleased to learn that there are a variety of home remedies for smelly feet. Further, there are various methods you can use at home to make your shoes smell fresher, too.

Some items and mixtures you can use to fight odor on your feet include the following: good old soap and water, deodorants, rubbing alcohol, green tea, lavender oil, Epsom salts, oatmeal, apple cider vinegar.

To freshen up a pair of shoes, you can try using dryer sheets, rubbing alcohol, cat litter, or even simply washing them and letting them dry completely.

If you find that home remedies are not helping to take care of your foot odor problem, then you can try over-the-counter products obtained from the store or pharmacy. Of course, Richardson Podiatry Associates is also here to help. We can determine if you have a special condition causing the problem, and prescribe stronger medications for stubborn cases of smelly feet.
