Tips for Living with Sweaty Feet

When you have excessively sweaty feet, it can make you want to pack up, leave your Sugar Land home, and move to northern Alaska. It’s important to keep in mind that this is merely an inherited condition, and it’s not triggered by the heat. Sure, the average person sweats more frequently when it’s warmer out, but individuals who live with hyperhidrosis do not fall in this camp. So before you head for arctic climate to find relief, Foot & Ankle Associates is here to offer these tips for living with feet that sweat profusely:

  • Practice good foot hygiene. Wash your feet, including between your toes, with an antibacterial soap daily. Sweat by itself is odorless, but when it mixes with bacteria that are found on your feet, the offensive odor is produced.
  • After thoroughly drying your feet, apply foot powder, cornstarch, or antifungal powder.
  • Choose socks that wick moisture away instead of trapping it. Examples of these kinds of socks include merino wool and polypro. Cotton socks are actually a terrible choice for anyone who has hyperhidrosis. This material absorbs the moisture, instead of wicking it away, and can lead to blisters.
  • Change socks during the day by bringing extra pairs with you to work or wherever you may go.
  • Make sure that you wear shoes that are made from breathable materials.
  • Schedule an appointment with our office. We know that this condition is embarrassing, but Dr. Vargas can help you control the problem. Only about half the people who have excessively sweaty feet see a podiatrist, and that’s too bad. Come in and get the expert care and treatment you need instead of suffering embarrassment.

When you need to be talked out of a move to Alaska, Foot & Ankle Associates is here for you. We will help you deal with offensive, sweaty feet, and you will have the confidence that you are receiving the medical attention you need. Call our Sugar Land, TX office at (888) 784-5335 or schedule an appointment online today.
