What is sweaty feet?
Sweaty feet is a common condition shared by many children and adults. The foot has over 250,000 sweat glands. While sweaty feet may affect people more in hotter months, some people suffer from sweaty feet all year round.
The most common cause of sweaty feet is a genetic predisposition to the problem. Sweaty feet also frequently affects those under stress or going through hormonal changes.
Sweaty feet can be treated in a variety of ways.
Hygiene - a thorough washing of the feet daily.
Socks - say no to cotton socks if you suffer from sweaty feet. Try to wear socks that wick moisture away from the foot, like merino wool or polyester.
Foot Powder - any talcum based powder should aid in keeping feet dry through the day. Topical medications are also available through your podiatrist.
