Often used for treatment of a broken bone, a cast can also be useful after surgery and for other conditions that require immobilization. Unfortunately, a cast can start to stink, and the smell can become quite bad. Cast odor tends to be most problematic in young children and athletes. Little kids have a hard time keeping the cast dry. Athletes may not give up their exercise causing sweat to accumulate under the cast. What can you do if you have a stinky cast?
