Proper Hygiene is First Step in Preventing Hyperhydrosis: MD Podiatrist

Foot sweating isn’t just uncomfortable. It can cause more serious problems, like fungus and bacterial infections that thrive in the warm, moist environment of a sweaty shoe. In extreme cases, there are medical treatments like Botox injections that can stop sweat at the source. If you’re dealing with a less serious problem, however, there are steps you can take at home to prevent and treat the issue. 
Washing your feet daily with soap and water should be your first step in both preventing and treating sweat. “For people who have hyperhidrosis, I recommend they wash their feet at least twice a day and completely dry them with paper towels before putting on socks,” says podiatrist Daniel Michaels, DPM. He says anti-bacterial soaps are especially effective at killing the odor-causing bacteria that often goes hand in hand with excessive perspiration.
