Contrary to popular belief, sweaty feet don’t smell — initially. Feet tend to perspire (hyperhidrosis) more than other parts of the body, thanks to around 250,000 sweat glands. One of the ways we rid the body of excessive heat is through our feet. If the sweat stays on the skin too long, it can contribute to the accumulation and growth of bacteria, fungi, molds and yeast, hence stinky, smelly feet, a condition known as “bromhidrosis”.
