My 12yo DS’s feet smell terrible! He showers every day, but he takes his shoes off when he gets home and the smell is just Puke . I know I know welcome to teen boys. But am I overlooking something that can be solved somehow? He wears regular sneakers and socks.

Are you sure he's not re-wearing socks?

No, he’s definitely changing socks, he’s the type who will rather put in hamper (or next to) than deal with dirty socks.
How do I find out if it’s fungal and what do I do? (Clueless sorry!)

My brothers have this issue. It's when sneakers get wet from sweat or rain and don't dry well.
This is what they do.

Wear thick exercise socks meant to wick away sweat
Have 2 pairs of sneaker and alternate each day so they have time to dry completely.
Wash bottom of feet and toes with soap in shower
Buy oder balls and put them in sneakers overnight.
You can also try to sprinkle baking powder inside overnight, but shake it out before wearing.

My brother actually told me that he pours rubbing alcohol into his sneakers every two weeks. Tilts the sneaker so it gets every spot and let dry. He says this really works.

Once they get stinky, it's pretty much a lost cause. It's never going to be completely oder-less.

His shoes are liekly made of poor material as most sneakers are today expensive junk so his feet are smelling extra from it
Buy items to place in shoe
He can also habe athelte foot he needs to dry his feet well after shower in between toes

Between the 3 it should cure it

Have him use a foot deodorant, or spray his feet with a normal deodorant every morning before putting on socks and shoes.
And what was posted above - the shoes must dry out completely between wears.

My DH used to have this when we were first married.
He switched to thicker white cotton socks. Maybe he bought different shoes then.too.

I've posted this before, but apparently there is a bacteria that can live on feet and make them smell. In addition to frequent washing of feet, socks and shoes. ) and having more than one pair of shoes).Use a spray that contains zinc oxide for a few days (on feet and in shoes).

Ds had this and nothing worked until we started using the spray. After he had used in for a couple of weeks, the smell went away and had never come back.

We used Dr school's odor x spray

The fastest answer: Dr Scholls Odor Eater insoles. Buy them at CVS. Put them in your son's shoes, no more odor.
