Sweaty Feet Hyperhidrosis

Suffering from excessively sweaty feet causing wet socks and shoes and 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.  It’s more common in men than in women, and more common in young adults than older adults. People whose feet sweat excessively often also have problems with excessive sweating of the palms. Excessive sweating of the feet seems to be an inherited problem. No one knows exactly why it occurs, but people who sweat excessively seem to have a different “set point” than other people. Most people sweat when it’s hot out, or when they become warm. People with hyperhidrosis sweat excessively almost all the time.

Sweaty Feet Treatment & Cure:

Good foot hygiene is essential. Wash your feet daily with an antibacterial soap; be sure to wash between the toes. Dry the feet thoroughly, then apply cornstarch, foot powder, or an antifungal powder to your feet. Wear wicking socks that draw the moisture away from your feet instead of trapping it. Synthetic blends are designed to wick moisture away from the skin and work best to keep the feet dry. One hundred percent cotton socks absorb moisture but do not wick it away from the skin and frequently lead to blisters, so they should be avoided. It’s also a good idea to change socks during the day. Stash an extra pair of socks at school or at work, and change socks mid-way through the day. These tips will all help with sweaty feet treatment and hopefully, cure.
