Foot Odor Hyperhidrosis

Plagued by embarrassing foot odor? If so, you may be suffering from Hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by excess sweating in the hands, feet, armpits or groin area. While it is not dangerous, it can produce athlete’s foot and/or toenail fungus, and an annoying odor. The main cause of foot odor is foot sweat. Sweat itself is odorless, but it creates a beneficial environment for certain bacteria to grow and produce bad-smelling substances. Socks can also cause foot odor, but not on their own. When worn along with shoes, socks can help to trap the hair on the feet, especially on the toes, and may contribute to the odor’s intensity by adding increased surface area in which the bacteria can thrive.

Hyperhidrosis Treatment & Cure:

Maintaining good foot hygiene is the best way to prevent and cure foot odor as it eliminates odor causing bacteria and removes dead skin cells as well as sebum. Avoid putting on shoes with dirty feet and dirty socks. When walking barefoot, feet should be cleaned with soap and water before putting shoes on. Also be sure to wear specialty socks with fibers designed to keep perspiration away from the foot. Try to avoid socks made of polyester or nylon because they may increase the amount of perspiration because they do not let the feet breathe as well as cotton. Shower regularly with an anti-fungal soap and use foot powders and sprays designed to keep feet dry, odor-free, and recommended by your podiatrist. These tips will all help treat and cure Hyperhidrosis (foot odor).
