Quick Fixes for Your Stinky Body Parts


Peeee-yew! Most women have the occasional case of funky-smelling feet or pungent pits — especially in summer’s sweltering temps. Fortunately, there’s a simple solution for each of your malodorous parts.

The Fix for Funky Feet

When your feet sweat or get wet,bacteria build up and cause odor, site Kelly Geoghan, DPM, a podiatrist at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore. The best solution? Keep your tootsies as moisture-free as possible. Dry them well after every shower and be sure to wipe in between your toes. If sweat’s your problem, spray your feet with an antiperspirant from the deodorant aisle of the drugstore, Dr. Geoghan suggests. An excess of foot sweat can even lead the dry skin between your toes to ball up into another icky foot issue: toe jam.

Avoid wearing socks and heavy shoes outside in the heat if you can help it. If these methods don’t get rid of the stench, says Geoghan, a prescription-strength roll-on made for body odor can probably kick it.
