Most of us have suffered from foot perspiration at some point. We have over 250,000 sweat glands in each foot! Living in a hot climate, wearing a fall or winter boot made of non-breathable materials, or taking a hike with the wrong socks can lead to feet sweating over the course of the day. For some, sweaty feet are not an isolated incident or an irregular occurrence. Are you someone who deals with this on a daily basis?

Dealing with Sweaty FeetExcessive sweating is a condition called hyperhidrosis. It is a very common condition treated by Dr. Joel W. Brook and Dr. David R. Northcutt. You are not alone! This condition is more common in men and unfortunately seems to be an inherited problem, according to the American Podiatric Medical Association. While you may not be able to escape being prone to this condition, you can step in and take charge so it doesn’t take charge of you. 

Sweaty feet often cause smelly feet and make a person prone to infection. Start with good hygiene. Wash your feet each and every day with an antibacterial soap and dry your feet well. Use an antifungal powder and if you wear socks, buy ones made of a synthetic blend that will wick away moisture. Rotate your shoes to give them a chance to dry out between uses and change your socks throughout the day if you need to. 

If following these tips doesn’t make a difference, don’t worry – we can help! We have treatments available to help you take control of this condition. In some extreme cases, Botox injections can be used to stop your perspiration for several months at a time. Make an appointment today by calling Dallas Podiatry Works in Dallas, TX (972) 566-7474 or Plano, TX (972) 943-3323.
