- Do not wear unwashed clothes. Wash your clothes once you have used them. Wearing unwashed cloths may lead many health problems.Drink lots of water. This helps in eliminating toxins from your body so that you do not smell bad.
- Closed feet in shoes that are there for long time can give rise to bacteria and fungi leading to odor. Do not wear tight shoes. Also avoid wearing shoes for longer. Try wearing open sandals too.
