ankle doctor pasadena txMost people have experienced sweaty feet at some point in their lifetime. It can be annoying and inconvenient, but it can also cause foot problems if there’s an underlying cause or if the sweating is extreme! If you suffer from sweaty feet, our ankle doctor in Pasadena, TX, wants to share some tips with you.

Causes of Sweaty Feet

Most people associate sweaty feet with exercise or simply being active in the heat. While this is true, sometimes people can have problems with sweaty feet in the winter due to overly warm boots with poor ventilation or very thick socks.

Additionally, some people just naturally have sweaty feet due to overactive sweat glands, also known as hyperhidrosis. This affects the feet as well as the hands, and can be very inconvenient and cause problems with foot health for the sufferer.

Complications of Sweaty Feet

Sweaty feet contribute to the growth of foot fungus, the development of fungal nails, and athlete’s foot. These conditions are characterized by discomfort, itching, and rash. They can lead to further complications, such as foot pain, thickened toenails, and even open sores and infection. It’s critical to prevent sweat and bacteria buildup to stop these conditions from developing.

Treatments and Prevention

Here are a few simple steps to take care of sweaty feet at home:

  • Wash your feet every day with an antifungal soap to remove any fungus-causing bacteria and excess sweat.
  • Use antifungal powder and antiperspirants, especially in the summer or when exercising. For people with hyperhidrosis, antiperspirants are absolutely essential to prevent sweating and preserve foot health. You can purchase these over-the-counter.
  • Wear good quality socks and shoes with ventilation to ensure your feet can breathe and cool off!

If you have any symptoms of foot fungus, athlete’s foot, or just want more advice on treatments for sweaty feet, our podiatrist is more than happy to help.
