Are You Struggling With Embarrassing Sweaty Feet?

Tuesday, 15 November 2022 00:00

The condition that pertains to people whose feet sweat excessively is referred to as plantar hyperhidrosis. An effective way to gauge if your feet are sweating too much is by how it compromises daily activities. Additionally, many people who are afflicted with this condition are embarrassed by how much their feet sweat, and may refrain from wearing shoes such as flip flops. Additionally, there may be an odor that comes from the feet, and patients can possibly be prone to developing infections and rashes. Plantar hyperhidrosis can develop as a result of the amount of sweat the sweat glands produce, and there are methods that can be implemented that may help to control this.  These can include wearing shoes and socks that are made of breathable materials, and it may help to sprinkle powder inside the shoes. Plantar hyperhidrosis can be uncomfortable, and if you have this condition, it is strongly suggested that you consult with a podiatrist who can help you to live your life more comfortably.

If you are suffering from hyperhidrosis contact one of our podiatrists of Bazzi Podiatry. Our doctors can provide the care you need to attend to all of your foot and ankle needs.

Hyperhidrosis of the Feet

Hyperhidrosis is a rare disorder that can cause people to have excessive sweating of their feet. This can usually occur all on its own without rigorous activity involved. People who suffer from hyperhidrosis may also experience sweaty palms.

Although it is said that sweating is a healthy process meant to cool down the body temperature and to maintain a proper internal temperature, hyperhidrosis may prove to be a huge hindrance on a person’s everyday life.

Plantar hyperhidrosis is considered to be the main form of hyperhidrosis. Secondary hyperhidrosis can refer to sweating that occurs in areas other than the feet or hands and armpits. Often this may be a sign of it being related to another medical condition such as menopause, hyperthyroidism and even Parkinson’s disease.

In order to alleviate this condition, it is important to see your doctor so that they may prescribe the necessary medications so that you can begin to live a normal life again. If this is left untreated, it is said that it will persist throughout an individual’s life.

A last resort approach would be surgery, but it is best to speak with your doctor to find out what may be the best treatment for you.
