    Default smelly feet?

    i dont really wear shoes often, but obviously when i play ( i have to). So then my feet kinda smell bad afterward. Of course, laugh on me if you want =(. But at least help. On tv, i only see like athletes foot commercial stuffs. Well i dont really know, but i'm thinking like itchy? So yea, i haven't see any commercial talk about smelly feet when wear shoes.
    If i dont make sense, please yell or something.
    Basically, anyone know how to treat smelly feet?
    Powder? spray?
    and what kind?
    name of the stuffs?
    where to get it?
    i live in usa, california. So i'm able to go walgreen, walmart, and pharmacy
    that's all i know, and that all i think that they should have something like that
    ok thank you,
    By the way, sorry if this is not fit in "INJURIES" Forum

    If you have had your shoes for badminton a long time give them a good wash to wash the sweat out.
    Athletes foot doesn't smell, that I know of, its the peeling of the skin. Normally very close to your toes.
    Give your shoes a spray with some body spray and don't store them in an enclosed or air tight space.
    I hope that helps.

    Athletes foot does smell lol. My brother had it.
    Wash your feet regularly and make sure that your shoes are washed every so often. Also give them a spray with some deodorant and change your socks if you find your feet too sweaty.

    Haha that happens every now and then, I'd recommend using some nice spray on your shoes/socks, and wash your feet when you get home.

    Lets be realistic, some people out there have more bacteria on their feet and inside the confines of shoes, whether they are old or new, they will get problems.
    Of course washing the feet with a better antimicrobial soap will help, but that generally leaves the skin much dryer and can result in more blisters or skin damage. Good quality shoes are a must. If you are wearing a proper fairly recent badminton shoe with good support and required gum-soles, you are in the right step.
    I myself am lucky if I can find any shoe that lasts me longer than 12 weeks, I move a lot when playing and being 185lbs doesn't help either! I also have the wet-foot problem of perspiration. If I play a tough competitive match, my socks(also to have good quality thick pairs) will be wringing wet from perspiration. All it takes from there is a short step to smelly feet....

    Change socks frequently.

    You can even try washing your feet in between games but make sure they are dry when you put clean socks on.

    wash your feet when you get home.
    At the very least it should be after the session.

    Make sure the socks are cotten socks.

    Change the insoles of your badminton shoes one time (since this may have lots of bacteria inside)

    Make sure the insoles dry out properly after your games. i.e. that makes taking the shoes out of your bag to dry out and pulling the insoles out.


    Many of us will change out of badminton shoes after the session and wear other shoes to go home in.

    Powder and sprays: Basically there are deodorants, perfumes and medications. Go for powders to help keep your feet dry. Use medicants for athletes foot.

    At home: If you are the sweaty foot type, get some isopropyl alcohol and clean down those areas of your feet that get sweaty. Let it dry before putting any socks on. This is applicable for daily care.

    assumed it is due to bacteria infection.
    ways to counter;
    1. do not wear 100% cotton socks. cotton tends to soak your feet with sweat.cotton socks are hard to dry. bacteria/fungus loves cotton. wear the nylon-type socks. like 60% nylon, 40% cotton.
    2. clean your feet with antiseptic solution like dettol. if possible soak your feet with it for 3-5 minutes to kill germs.
    3. if possible wash the socks with antiseptic solution(dettol).
    4. get an antiseptic shoe spray too. use it regularly.

    if you still facing the same situation after two weeks, please make a visit nearest clinic to have doctor's inspection.

    I agree with all everyone has said about treating the feet, and putting powder in the badminton shoes.......
    ....but what about the non-baddy footwear. You say you don't wear shoes, but do you wear flip-flops/sandals? Don't forget that those may serve as a source of re-infection. (re-smellification is the term for podiatrists, I believe)

    well thank you all. But i'm looking more specific answer. And here extra information. I dont get excessive sweaty feet. And it's not like super stink. I just really want to make my feet smell good. I mean literally smell good, or no smell after wearing shoes. Because i know a friend has a smelly feet. Man i couldn't take it. Compare to mine is like ying and yang. But i just like my feet to be none smell, and yea keep them dry is better.
    So anyway, i'm going to take the advice from everybody.
    Spray, powder, wash my feet after game. (well that's what i always do, and i always switch to sandals after the game to go home.)
    Clean my shoes, yea that's a good one. I dont really wear my badminton shoe much so i dont really think of that. Anything else from wat i read i've done all that.
    But here my request:
    NAME the BRAND NAME of the powder, and the spray. Thank you.
    Do a little commercial i dont mind.

    When your feet sweat you CANT make them smell good. There is nothing you can do and if it isnt too bad then why bother worrying about it? Wash your feet after the session and that should be the problem solved.

    Default Cedarsoles

    Oh no... don't use any powders or sprays... they haven't an effect and their use is too complicated. Better try special zederna insoles made from cedar wood. They also prevent your feet from sweating.
