Hyperhidrosis of the feetFor many people, summertime is the season to expose their feet. However, not all people look forward to this weather, or are even able to reap the benefits of the season. A condition known as hyperhidrosis, characterized by excessive sweating, can definitely put a hamper on summertime fun. It is also possible that the summer itself could be to blame for this condition.

Hyperhidrosis often occurs in the armpits, hands, and feet, areas of the body that are more likely to perspire. This condition can especially affect women, who are more likely to wear open shoes. "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 antiperspirant 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. James Ricketti of New Jersey is an important solution to treat and care 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.
