Health Tip: When Feet Sweat

Socks

(HealthDay News) — Everyone’s feet sweat, but for some people the wetness and odor are a bigger problem.

The American Podiatric Medical Association suggests how to deal with sweaty feet:

  • Wash feet every day.
  • Dry feet thoroughly, especially between the toes.
  • Apply a foot powder, cornstarch or antifungal powder.
  • Wear synthetic, moisture-wicking socks, not all-cotton socks.
  • Change socks during the day to keep feet dry.
