Hey third.year, it may actually work if it is a dermatophyte on your skin causing the problem. I have read others had bacterial problems and used neosporin, gentamycin, or benxoyl peroxide ( Acne cream) to kill bacteria in their trouble areas. They usually put it on overnight. I personally used a thin layer of the Acne crean on my feet and there is no foot odor anymore. I use that everyday after a shower. Saves my shoes.
