Excessive foot wetness is a common problem. The foot has 250,000 sweat glands, the highest concentration of sweat glands of the entire body. Wearing closed shoes or socks made from synthetic materials for long periods of time can cause foot wetness. Excessive moisture increases the chance for bacterial growth…When bacteria feed on sweat and dead skin cells, foot odour is the result.
The issue can be unpleasant, embarrassing, and unfortunately an on-going problem. However, it can be treated effectively with proper care and products designed for foot odour and wetness.
