How can I prevent sweaty feet?

Most of the best ways to prevent sweaty feet (or the negative effects of sweaty feet) fall within the lines of good foot hygiene. Wear shoes that let your feet “breathe,” avoiding sweltering materials like rubber. Wash your feet every day, and whenever they do get wet, including after a bath or shower, make sure to dry them thoroughly. Change your socks at least once per day and try not to wear the same pair of shoes all the time. Rotate your footwear and give a pair of shoes at the very least 24 hours to dry out. If your feet need a boost, you can always use antiperspirant on the bottoms of them. The same that works under your arms can work there, too.

If preventative measures don’t seem to help a sweaty situation, give the doctors at California Foot and Ankle Institute a call. We can help you keep dry with more advanced treatments, and help prevent complications such as athlete’s foot and nail fungus. Call us toll-free at (888) 796-6631.
