SWEATY FEET

PODIATRIST, DR. WENJAY SUNG STATES, "IT'S NOT JUST THE STENCH; SWEATY FEET CAN ALSO CAUSE CRACKED HEELS, LIZARD-LIKE SKIN, AND EVEN FUNGAL INFECTIONS."

EACH OF YOUR FEET HAS ABOUT 250,000 SWEAT GLANDS THAT PRODUCE ABOUT HALF A PINT OF SWEAT EVERYDAY.  YOU CAN MINIMIZE THE AMOUNT OF PERSPIRATION THAT REACHES THE SURFACE OF THE SKIN BY APPLYING ANTIPERSPIRANT/DEODORANT SPRAY IN THE MORNING AND EVENING AND AFTER SHOWERING.  THE METAL, ALUMINUM IN THE ANTIPERSPIRANT BLOCKS THE SWEAT DUCTS THUS REDUCING THE AMOUNT OF SWEAT PRODUCED.  ALSO PUT BABY POWDER OR ANTI FUNGAL POWDER IN YOUR SHOES BEFORE YOU WEAR THEM TO REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF SWEAT AS WELL CHANGE YOUR FOOT WEAT DAILY BY ROTATING THEM TO LET THEM DRY THOROUGHLY TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FUNGAL INFECTION.
