Q
What causes stinky feet?

A

Let's face it - stinky feet is a universal problem, for the young and old.  Although the sweat coming from the 250,000+ sweat glands in your feet doesn't smell, wearing nonbreathable socks and shoes traps the moisture, encouraging bacterial growth.  The bacteria is what gives off the odor.  In order to get rid of the smell, our office carries Clean Sweep shoe spray.  It is kills bacteria and fungus.  Stop by our office and pick it up today!  If you have any foot questions, make an appointment with one of our doctors.
