Health Tip: If You Have Sweaty Feet
(HealthDay News) -- Sweaty feet can cause slipping and sliding in your shoes, and increase the risk of a fungal infection.
The American Podiatric Medical Association offers these suggestions to help keep your tootsies dry and comfortable:
- Thoroughly wash your feet daily with an antibacterial soap and water, making sure to clean between the toes.
- Carefully dry your feet, then sprinkle with cornstarch, foot powder or an antifungal powder.
- Wear socks made of synthetic materials that help keep moisture away from the skin.
- Change your socks during the day.
