Health Tip: If You Have Sweaty Feet
(HealthDay News) -- Sweaty feet can cause slipping and sliding in your shoes, and increase the risk of a fungal infection.
The American Podiatric Medical Association offers these suggestions to help keep your tootsies dry and comfortable:
Thoroughly wash your feet daily with an antibacterial soap and water, making sure to clean between the toes.
Carefully dry your feet, then sprinkle with cornstarch, foot powder or an antifungal powder.
Wear socks made of synthetic materials that help keep moisture away from the skin.
Change your socks during the day.
