Pungent foot odor - antibiotics?

    I have pungent foot odor that is chronic. Even after washing with Hibiscrub and applying fucidin, my feet will still accumulate and give off a very pungent odor. It's so bad that even my bad smells of it, and so does my bedroom. My understanding is that I probably have more brevibacteria on my feet than average person.

    Is there any chemist/podologist/dermatologist that can advice what antibiotics I can try to reduce the brevibacteria?

    And no, my feet do sweat but it's not beyond the normal sweat pattern. My issue is an issue of bacterial overgrowth that Im now trying to alter/reduce.

    Many thanks for any input!
