Hyperhidrosis of the FeetFor some, summertime is the season to expose your feet in the latest shoe trends and keep them constantly out in the open. However, for others, the warm weather is a hindrance and bothersome to their feet. Several people suffer from hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating, and summer might be to blame for it.

Not only do you sweat under your arms and in other areas in warm temperatures, but feet do not get away with it either. Especially for women who in the summer tend to wear more open shoes, this conditions becomes more serious. "Hyperhidrosis on feet is a big problem for many women," said Francesca Fusco, a dermatologist from New York City.  Botox is usually recommended in people who suffer from hyperhidrosis in their feet to prevent excessive sweating and sliding. Those with a minimal case of hyperhidrosis can minimize moisture by putting anti-perspirant on the feet.

Having sweaty or excessive moisture in the feet can be bothersome and appear unhygienic. Keeping your feet in check by a podiatrist such as Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay is an important solution for 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.
