Foot odor– Corynebacterium is a common cause and creates a terrible smell as it releases Sulfer compounds. Anyone spending long hours in hot sweaty boots is at risk- our military, farm workers, football or soccer players. Your Podiatrist will most likely prescribe a topical antibiotic and recommend antiperspirant be applied to the feet after your daily shower and washing with an antimicrobial cleanser. ( see hyperhydrosis).
