If you’re anticipating an upcoming visit to a podiatrist in Sugar Land , you may be concerned about the potential for smelly feet when you remove your shoes and socks. But there’s no need to feel awkward; podiatrists understand that all feet tend to emit unpleasant odors. You’ll learn the reason for that when you watch this featured video.

It explains that each human foot has over 250,000 sweat glands. As the foot sweats, the bacteria on the skin eat the sweat and produce waste as a byproduct. The foot odor is caused by bacterial byproducts. Feet tend to stink worse than other sweaty areas of the body because they are usually encased by socks and shoes, which allow the odoriferous byproducts to become highly concentrated.
