What causes smelly feet?

I have extremely smelly feet. Why is this happening? I wear shoes and socks all day and understand that our feet can smell after a long daytime this is much more extreme than that. It is offensive and I soak them nightly but it hasn t helped. Is there an underlying health problem? YYYY@YYYY

You can try soaking more than one time a day and wear cotton socks and change shoes. I don't think it has to be with a health problem.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
