Possible Methods to Manage Plantar Hyperhidrosis

Monday, 27 July 2020 00:00

The term plantar hyperhidrosis is the medical name for excessively sweaty feet. Patients who are afflicted with this condition often have feet that feel soggy for the majority of the day, and this may lead to developing fungal infections of the feet. Additional symptoms can include an unpleasant foot odor, and damp footprints may be left after walking barefoot. Research has indicated that it may be beneficial to wear shoes and socks that are constructed with breathable materials, in addition to refraining from wearing the same shoes for more than one day in a row. There are a variety of effective remedies available, and it is strongly suggested that you consult with a podiatrist who can determine what the best course of treatment is for you.

If you are suffering from hyperhidrosis contact Martha Ajlouny, DPM of Instride Greensboro Podiatry Associates. Our doctor can provide the care you need to attend to all of 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 feel free to contact one of our offices located in Greensboro, and Siler City, NC. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
