Foot Care Odor Control at Walgreens

Foot odor is a very common problem. Concerns about foot odor can make you hesitant to remove your shoes when you enter someone's home and even make you feel self-conscious during the day. Fortunately, you don't have to resign yourself to worrying about the smell of your feet or footwear. Walgreens can help you find an odor control solution to freshen your feet. We stock a diverse assortment of sprays, powders and insoles that combat foot odors and make it possible to shop online and in stores.

What Causes Foot Odor?

In many cases, foot odor is caused by the presence of bacteria on the feet. Bacterial cells thrive in the wet, dark conditions inside of your socks and shoes and can begin to produce foul odors in a very short period of time. Sometimes, an unpleasant odor can be a sign of an infection caused by fungus or bacteria. These types of infections may require prescription or over-the-counter medications for treatment. As a result, it is a good idea to talk to your doctor about any new foot odor problems that you may experience.

Powders for Fresher Feet

Foot powder is a commonly used solution for foot odor. Powders are dusted or shaken onto the skin and leave behind a lightweight layer. Absorbent ingredients in foot powder like talc or cornstarch draw moisture away from the skin during the day. By promoting drier skin, foot powder makes it more difficult for bacteria to grow. Some products are medicated with ingredients that kill bacteria. It is also common for powders to be lightly scented to improve the smell of feet upon application.

Spray on the Freshness

For people who want the benefits of foot powder without having to shake or dust on a product, powder sprays are an excellent solution. Powder sprays are dispensed as mists out of a spritz or aerosol can. Once applied, the mist becomes a powder, offering benefits that are similar to conventional foot powder.

Insoles for Odor Control

If your shoes tend to smell worse than your feet, odor controlling inserts can help. These pads fit into the bottom of shoes and provide both odor fighting and cushioning benefits. To promote fresher feet, odor control inserts may contain a number of ingredients, including activated charcoal and baking soda. The insoles may work by absorbing moisture or by inhibiting the growth of bacteria with antimicrobial ingredients.

Other Steps You Can Take for Fresher Feet

Odor control products can go a long way toward promoting fresher feet, but using other foot care products available at Walgreens can improve results even more. Washing your feet every day with a foot wash or body wash can help reduce odors. Wearing breathable socks made with cotton, wool or bamboo also promotes fresher feet. In addition, improving the fit of your shoes with insoles or inserts may help.
