    Hey, what's going on in here? What's that smell?


    Oh, it's just yomamma again.
    Wasn't stoned the one that didn't take a shower all last week? We should take you two and lock you up in this thread. Whoever comes out alive is the winner.

    Maybe somebody knows this one. I have heard that body odor problems can indicate a potassium deficiency. So if your feet stink, make a like a chimp and eat bananas?

    This site suggests zinc as a folk remedy.

    Are your feet sweaty?

    My daughter has always had sweaty feet, I nicknamed her "puddlefoot" when she was a baby. As a result, her shoes start to stick in no time.

    Some things you can do -

    wear cotton socks, a new pair at least once a day, maybe twice

    shoes that "breathe", no synthetic material

    don't wear the same pair of shoes more than two days in a row and you need to let them completely dry out between wearings and this won't happen overnight

    a good foot powder and maybe a foot antiperspirant

    Some good suggestions on that site, in addition to those Evo mentioned, for treating foot odor, especially if showering doesn't get rid of the odor.

    Or move to Oregon where half the population wears sandles - Birkenstocks, of course. :biggrin:

    Or move someplace warmer so you can go barefoot or wear sandals without your feet freezing off! I love going barefoot! You have to let your feet breathe. The only one in my family with stinky feet is my mom, and she's also the one who refuses to ever go barefoot, so wears shoes from when she wakes up until she gets ready for bed.

    I never wear shoes unless I have to. That might be why my feet are so wide.
