I can smell my feet.

They stink. I washed them this morning, but that obviously did not help. The old eczema is flaring up in a nasty way.

I could go wash my feet again, but that would also wash off the medicine.

I could do nothing, but then I would have to sit in my own stink all day.

I am also debating taking off my socks and hiding them in an annoying co-worker's office. But then, I will be sockless.

What should I do?

Pull a Steve Jobs and just soak them in the toilet in your office.

Is this a serious question? If so, I would go with jsharr's recommendation.

You could put this on your nose.

I find shampoo is better than soap for removing bodily smells. Light some incense and play sitar music.

Neither is highway safety. Perhaps you should paint your stank foot with ODOT approved lane marking paint.

I agree with this! But the water is pretty cold, isn't it?

Which brings to mind the Fig Newton dance. Do not attempt the Fig Newton dance after drinking more than 3 shots of bourbon!

I once walked the entire Cedar Point in Ohio without socks inside tennis shoes.

You ain't got no foot stank like I had then. People keeled over when they walked past my motel room where I left my shoes outside. Hell, the Health Department shut down the motel coffee shop because of numerous complaints of rotten food.

Tenderfoot.

Thank God for the Zebra Mussel. I finally knew the cure would have to be something from nature.

Just take care walking barefoot on those little razorblades. And although they do clean the water, they also disrupt the food chain.

I walked into the Cafe Brazil in the Bishop Arts District the other day and ordered a grilled cheese sammich. The idiots used that crumbly cheese that smells like feet.

It depends on just what is causing your feet to smell bad but the most common culprit is fungus or more specifically Candida. Smelly feet is often the tip of the iceberg. Its not pleasant. My first recommendation is to soak you feet in a strong solution of Bicarb of Soda daily. Let your feet get some sunlight will help. Cut sugar out of your diet is important too. Put your socks and shoes out in the sunlight is of vital importance too.

Thats a start and see how you go. Look seriously into Candida.
