Foot odor (bromhydrosis) is caused by the bacterial decomposition of normal secretions of the sweat glands.
We all have a "garden" of bacteria that normally live on our skin. People with excessive foot perspiration are predisposed to this problem.
Treatment is usually aimed at control of the sweating. Foot soaks in a solution containing a mild antibacterial agent (eg.
Tersaseptic) may be helpful.
