Smelly feet, also known as bromodosis, is a common problem for many, no matter what season it happens to be outside. While anyone can develop bromodosis, teenagers and pregnant women are at a higher risk due to hormonal changes that cause them to sweat more.
Other factors that contribute to smelly feet are wearing the same shoes every day, staying on your feet all day, wearing shoes that are too tight, experiencing a lot of stress, and having hyperhidrosis (a medical condition that causes you to sweat more than the average person).
Your feet can also develop an odor if the sweat soaks into your shoes and they don’t dry before wearing them again. There are ways to help prevent bromodosis, however.
