DON'T EXPERIMENT WITH OTC PRODUCTS TO TREAT CHRONIC ITCHY FEET
posted: Feb. 28, 2023.
While there are plenty of over-the-counter treatments at your disposal, if you’re dealing with chronic foot itching now is not the time to experiment. “These treatments only improve the symptoms,” Waldemar Majdanski, DPM explains. “It would be wise to see a foot professional such as a podiatrist or a dermatologist to evaluate the condition further and outline the proper treatment plan.”

“Typical recommendations include avoiding walking barefoot in public places, such as gyms and pools, airing out footwear at the end of the day, spraying the footwear with anti-fungal sprays, wearing comfortable breathable shoes to avoid increased sweating of the feet, and cleaning in between the toes after bathing or taking showers,” Dr. Majdanski explains.
