To help fight foot odor, you can apply underarm antiperspirant (spray or roll-on) to your feet, again making sure feet are dry before putting shoes on. Since cornstarch absorbs moisture, you can dust your feet lightly with the powder or you can make your own mixture of one cup cornstarch with one tablespoon of baking soda. Try to avoid wearing the same shoes two days in a row and sprinkling antibacterial powder (like Gold Bond or a foot odor powder) in your shoes can help keep the bacteria under control better.
