13 Jul Solutions For Sweaty Feet
With summer now in full swing, it’s not uncommon for people to suffer from excessively sweaty feet (as much as we’d prefer not too!). While this may seem like a non-issue, leaving your feet damp can cause a plethora of foot-related issues. At Cherrywood Foot Care, our team is all too familiar with the problems sweaty feet can cause for our podiatric patients. If you’re looking to avoid these issues this summer through recommended preventative measures, please schedule an appointment to discuss in further detail with our podiatry team.
Problems With Sweaty Feet
Sweating from your feet is a natural process and will not be a detriment to your health on its own. However, if you suffer from excessive foot sweating and do nothing to try and manage it, issues will begin to become present. When sweaty feet are left unchecked for too long, you increase the likelihood of dealing with the below drawbacks:
- Athlete’s foot.
- Toenail fungus.
- Foot odor (bromodosis).
Tips For Management
The medical term for excessive sweating from any part of the body is known as hyperhidrosis. If you develop hyperhidrosis of the feet, there are steps you can take to ensure that this condition does not cause any unsightly issues. For patients dealing with this, our team of podiatrists recommends the following strategies:
- Wear numerous pairs of cotton socks throughout the day to help keep your feet dry.
- Use antibacterial and antifungal cream on your feet to prevent issues.
- Apply antiperspirant to your feet.
- Stay hydrated to help the body regulate its temperature and reduce the likelihood of excess sweating.
- Apply rubbing alcohol between your toes.
