Back to Healthy body. Smelly feet aren't fun for anyone, so good personal hygiene and changing your shoes regularly should keep your feet fresh and sweet smelling. But teenagers and pregnant women are more likely to get them because hormonal changes make them sweat more.
You're also more likely to have sweaty feet if you're on your feet all day, wear shoes that are too tight, are under a lot of stress, or have a medical condition called hyperhidrosiswhich makes you sweat more than usual. Feet often become smelly if sweat soaks into your shoes and they don't dry before you wear them again. The good news is that smelly feet are usually easy to treat by keeping your feet clean and dry, and changing your shoes regularly.
