SWEATY FEET

People's feet sweat approximately 500ml a day. Hard to imagine? That's why it is so
important to wear the right shoes and socks. It is best to wear natural fibre socks
such as cotton or wool, as they wick the moisture away from the feet. They should
not be more than 40% synthetic material. It is also best to have leather shoes, as
your feet cannot breathe in synthetic materials. Charcoal insoles can be great, as
they absorb moisture. Although everyone's feet sweat, smelly or itchy feet are
usually signs of an underlying condition such as tinea, or a bacterial infection.
If you are concerned, please see a podiatrist, and they can assess your feet and
provide some recommendations.
