Don’t Experiment with OTC Products to Treat Chronic Itchy Feet: MD Podiatrist

While there are plenty of over-the-counter treatments at your disposal, if you’re dealing with chronic foot itching now is not the time to experiment. “These treatments only improve the symptoms,” Dan Michaels, DPM explains. “It would be wise to see a foot professional such as a podiatrist or a dermatologist to evaluate the condition further and outline the proper treatment plan.”
“Typical recommendations include avoiding walking barefoot in public places, such as gyms and pools, airing out footwear at the end of the day, spraying the footwear with anti-fungal sprays, wearing comfortable breathable shoes to avoid increased sweating of the feet, and cleaning in between the toes after bathing or taking showers,” Dr. Michaels explains.
