unusual foot problem---only WITH sandals
99% of people and/or references tell me that wearing sandals is the solution for foot odor. Well I have the complete OPPOSITE problem. The only time I HAVE foot odor is WHEN I wear sandals. All my adult life. It does not matter if they are leather, cotton, plastic, bamboo, whatever. Wearing them makes my feet sweat and stink, and the sandals stink. I have to wash my feet immediately if I remove my sandals, so they won't smell, but the sandals do until they have a chance to air out. Quite embarrassing...and in summer sandals are a must! Especially right now while I'm in my 3rd trimester of pregnancy with daily swollen feet!
When I wear socks and shoes, my feet NEVER have any odor.
What on earth can I do?
