Most complaints are for feet, and less for; underarms. Patients should seek advice from family/friends as to whether there is truly an odour;--as frequently, others do not notice it. Air exposure, simple soap, and regular deodorants are often effective. Achieve air exposure by shoe and sock removal, sock changes, arm elevation, and loose cotton clothes. Hair dryers. Odour results from bacterial action on sweat and skin cells. Antiperspirants assist by reducing perspiration and deodorants are fragrances to cover up odours. There are no controlled studies but antibacterial soaps (such as Trisan) are helpful in controlling bacteria and thus odour. Over the counter antibiotic creams (Polysporin) reduce bacterial action. Talcum powders help some, but are messy for others. A non-prescription antibiotic powder Zeasorb may be helpful. Aqueous glutaraldehyde (described above) can assist in foot odour control. Some find commercial products such as “Odour Eaters” helpful.
