Hello doctor,

My feet have a problem for about a year with excessive sweating and terrible smell. My feet usually do not stink. There has to be an underlying problem since I never had this before, ever. No one seems to know, but there is a reason for everything. What do you think?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Usually, people who have diabetes, hypertension, liver diseases, thyroid issues will have excessive sweating in feet. Please rule out those reasons. According to naturopathy, excess heat in the body is responsible for such an issue. Repeated cough (respiratory disease), sinusitis, neuropathy, etc. are other causes for excess (indirect) heat in the body.

It means some toxins need to be excreted from the body, which makes the excessive sweating in feet and stinking. You may dip your feet in warm water + salt for 30 minutes (morning and before bed) which will help to reduce the stinky.
