Health Tip: Coping With Sweaty Feet

(HealthDay News) -- If your feet are sweaty much of the time, you may have a condition called hyperhidrosis. While it's not cause for worry, you can do things to cope with excess sweating.

The American Podiatric Medical Association suggests:

  • Wash your feet daily, especially between the toes, with antibacterial soap.

  • Dry feet well, then sprinkle cornstarch, foot powder or an antifungal powder to keep feet dry.

  • Choose socks made of synthetic materials that wick sweat away from the feet. Avoid socks made of 100 percent cotton.

  • Wear shoes made of breathable material.

  • Keep an extra pair of socks with you and change them during the day.
