stinky feet!
9/21 15:07:25

My three yr old has really stinky feet. It should said that my mom also has smelly feet. Is this something he needs to be seen about? Is there anything I can do? If he takes his shoes off in the car I can smell it while driving, it is more prominant when he doesnt wear socks. Thank you for your time.

Hi Amy,

This is nothing to worry about.  I would make sure that he switches shoes and socks more often.

If you are concerned I would see a Podiatrist.
