I keep meaning to post this, and keep forgetting. So forgive 2 posts in 1 day, and ignore this if it doesn’t apply to you.
I went to the podiatrist for the first time last month, and whilst there I apologised to the nurse for my stinky feet. (And yes, I had wet wipes and wiped my feet off before presenting them for inspection. But they still stunk.) She was very nice, told me not to worry about it, they were used to it, and oh, by the way, put antiperspirant on your feet. The smells come because your feet sweat, and they get all mucky and yucky. So just put antiperspirant on them.
Well, I refused to put the same stick antiperspirant on my feet that I do on my underarms, so I got some spray. And lemme tell ya, it works! It keeps my feet dry, they don’t stink, and all is well in footville. Except for the hell spurs and whatever the heck is causing the pain on one foot, which is why I had an MRI on Tuesday. But even though they hurt, they smell just fine. Yay! (Upon review, noticed I typed “hell spurs” instead of “heel spurs.” But I decided to leave it, because they hurt like hell.)
I know I’m not the only person in the world with hideously stinky feet, so I’m hopeful this will help other sufferers. And you know I’m going to be watching search terms, to see if anyone gets here by searching for stinky feet, smelly feet, how to keep feet from stinking, my feet smell so bad that you could gag from the stench…
