Help! Young brother has smelling feet
 
Hi,

My young brother is 16 years old and has been having this problem for the past two years. His feet are not painful at all but they smell very bad. Each time he takes-off his shoes bad odour will arise. I used to advise him to change his socks every single day, which is what he does but hey the smell won't go away! What could be the problem? Is there a solution to this because he washes his feet for about three to four times a day but still the smell wont't go away.

Hope to get some help.:confused:

Have him soak his feet in warm regular tea. The tanins in it dry the feet and some how do have an effect on how the feet smell. I'm not joking this is true.

Is he using an antibacterial soap like Dial? This is what my Dr suggested for body odors.
