How Much Sweat Do Feet Produce

The human foot can produce over a pint of sweat everyday. Each foot has approximately 250,000 sweat glands.

Why Do Feet Smell?

The warm and moist environment of the feet is home to many microorganisms because of the environmental factors involved. Despite this fact, the most common cause of foot odor is bacteria growing on the skin. Sweat itself produces no odor, but it provides an excellent environment for bacteria to grow. These bacteria release a foul smell as they break down the sweat on the skin.
