“Hyperhydrosis, a hereditary condition, is an overproduction of sweat," says Jacqueline M. Sutera, doctor of podiatric medicine. "[It’s caused by] being nervous, warm weather, fever or illness, infection, certain fabrics or material, and dye in socks." Depending on the severity of sweat, you have a few options, says Sutera. Tea soaks, which involve literally letting your feet soak in cooled tea, have tannins that temporarily shrink sweat glands. “Over-the-counter sprays and powders can act to dry the skin and manage odor,” she says.
 
 
Shopping the aisles of the drugstore can help, but a quick dresser drawer run-through may alter the physical state of your feet, too. “Changing your socks to a more breathable fabric, like cotton or new moisture-wicking technology, [helps],” says Sutera. For more severe cases, there are a few options for treatments than can help. Miradry, an ultrasound procedure that is performed frequently over time, may decrease greatly the amount of sweating which occurs on the palms and soles. Botox is another option—“Botox in the feet can temporarily block sweat production for three to six months,” says Sutera—as is a surgical procedure that involves cutting the nerve that controls the sweat reaction.
