feet problem

Posted by Guy on March 10, 2002 at 23:55:36:

I'm 22 and quite active. By the end of the day my feet are REALLY sweaty and smell just as bad. I also get corns on the side of my big toe. Why is this? I wear work boots all day for my job at a construction site, is this the problem? How can I solve my sweating/smell problem? Are there products or should I be doing something different? Why gets rid of corns? Any info would be GREATLY appreciated.

The best thing that I can recommend is that you alternate shoes or boots. Buy another pair and switch everyday. You could also try powders but they dont last very long. there is medication called Drysol that can stop the sweating but it can cause skin irritation. I have this same problem times ten. When I get out of the shower and thoroughly dry my feet 1/2 hour later i leave footprints on the floor. you could also try to moisturize them. Or asorbine junior works too. I own at least 10 pairs of shoes that i alternate daily soetimes more often than that. When I work I bring an extrra pair of shoe an dsocks and switch at lunch. I also take off my shoes and let them dry as much as possible. I know that this is not esy to do on the job site but if you let your feet be hot and wet all day you are asking for more problems. I never had corns so I cant help you there.
hope this helps

Hopefully you are already wearing boots of natural substance like leather that will allow your feet to breathe. Try wearing socks that are made of CoolMax or some other moisture management material. Sporting goods stores are a good place to look. Hiking socks come in lots of different styles & weights, or you can try polypropylene sock liners with a thinner pair of moisture management walking or running socks over top.

I think corns are generally caused by shoes that are too small or narrow. Try sizing up a half or whole size or switching to wide width boots and wearing thicker socks.

Hi, Guy.

I cannot do better than Nutmeg and Gb in Philly.

The only other thing I would ask is if you tend to have cold hands and feet and if your hands tend to be sweaty too?

My husband is a Minister/Contractor he is on construction sites all day long in the hot humid Texas weather and he used to have the same problem.( I complained one too many times just kidding.) He started wearing a good cotton sock and if he had to he would change them two to three times a day any thing to keep dry, then at the end of the day he would apply lotion after he showered and then let them air out till he went to bed no socks no shoes. And he still does it every day except he has it under control he does not have to change socks so many times a day now. just twice now in the morning and evening when he gets home to take a shower and then gets ready to go back out. In the begining he also had to use an antifungal powder.

My hands and feet are ALWAYS cold. My hands not get that sweaty though, only when I'm nervous(obviously). Does my hands and feet being cold have to do with my feet sweating?

Thanks, Guy.

Thus is called dysautonomnia (see the glossary and the archives)---------ONLY caused by storage of stress-effect in the hypothalamus (see the homepage and the glossary and the archives about stress and about SR.

Your bodymind is being kind to you to give you such a gentle warning. If you do nothing about this, the warnings will get louder and louder until you cannot ignore them.
