Summer means warm temperatures, and for some people this means sweaty feet. While walking barefoot is the best way to keep the feet sweat-free, realistically it may not be the most practical. To remedy this dilemma, Bustle lists seven shoes that will help keep the feet sweat-free: slide sandals, which allow for breezes; suede peep-toe booties, suede heeled sandals, and suede flats to absorb sweat; Birkenstocks for their lightweight and durable design; Roshe Runs for their mesh material and lunarlon midsole; and jelly sandals with a non-jelly sole.

If you are suffering from hyperhidrosis contact one of our podiatrists from Connecticut Foot Care Centers, LLC. Our doctors will treat 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.

If you have any questions, please contact one of our offices located in Connecticut. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot care needs.
