In today's program, Dr. Reminga talks about foot perspiration or... sweaty feet. I think we can all relate to this on some level during the summer. Summer is a time when our feet naturally perspire more or sweat, due to hot and humid weather condition. However, sweaty feet can be a real concern for those who perspire more than normal.

Dr. Reminga asks his listeners a few questions... Do your feet feel soggy and damp all the time? Does your sweat ruin your shoes? Are you afraid to wear sandal for fear your feet will slip out of them? Do you leave damp footprints when you walk barefoot? Are your feet freezing cold in the winter because they are sweating? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions you may have excessively sweaty feet or plantar hyperhidrosis.

Hyperidrosis is a medical condition that affects different areas of the body such as underarms, hands and the feet. Plantar Hyerhidrosis refers to excessive sweating in relation to the feet. Fears such as removing shoes in public, a feeling of isolation, and an inferiority complex are common complaints of people with Hyperhidrosis. Even wearing a pair of flip flops can become impossible.

Think about this... each foot has over 250,000 sweat glands, more sweat glands are found in the feet than anywhere else on the body. The glands on the feet normally produce almost a cup full of moisture every day. People who sweat excessively, however, can produce more sweat than that. Interestingly, hyperhidrosis is more common in men and in young adults.

Listen to today's program to find out how this condition can become a foot health issue. Athlete's foot and foot fungus are problems that can result from overly sweaty feet. Dr. Reminga answers questions such as... What makes some people sweat more than others? How do hormones affect sweaty feet? Why do we get sweaty hands and feet when we get nervous about something, like... having stage fright? And... What can be done to help this condition? If you have this condition, or you know someone that does... today's show will be helpful.

Dr. Daniel Reminga's Weekly Radio Show "Your Feet Your Health" airs every Wednesday at 10 am & 5 pm on WKMJ 93.5FM, WMPL 920AM, WUPY 101.1FM radio. Listen to past recordings here.
