Q. My 17-year-old daughter has very smelly feet. I convinced her to try the urine trick, and IT WORKED! Her foot odor is completely gone!
A. We have heard from veterans that urinating on smelly feet can help clear up athletes’ foot as well as foot odor.
Another possibility involves zinc supplements. Here is one reader’s story:
“About 8 years ago, my then 12-year-old son had terrible foot odor. It finally stopped when I read in your column to try zinc. We bought generic zinc tablets and within a week we saw dramatic improvement with just one tablet daily.”
