Smelly feet are caused when bacteria break down the surface of the skin and this
is particularly visible around the toes and on weight bearing areas and appears as
multiple superficial pits.
The wearing of shoes that have synthetic materials, especially trainer shoes also
socks that are of man made fabric are contributing factors of the production of excessive
perspiration and the bacteria growth that causes this condition. These two problems
can lead to athletes foot (Fungal infections) and bacterial infections.
