Sweaty Feet Can Be Common Among Babies

Monday, 15 June 2020 00:00

Sweating is the natural method to regulate body heat. Many people can become overheated as a result of exercising, having anxiety, and enduring hormonal changes. Additionally, genetic factors and existing medical conditions may play a significant role in having sweaty feet. This condition is known as plantar hyperhidrosis. When overheating occurs, the sweat glands are activated to restore the body to normal temperatures. Some children have feet that sweat for the majority of the day, and this may cause embarrassment if the shoes and socks are removed. If you notice your child has this condition, it is suggested that you consult with a podiatrist who can properly diagnose and treat it.

If you are suffering from hyperhidrosis contact Dr. Nooshin Zolfaghari of VIP Foot & Ankle Center. Our doctor can provide the care you need to attend to all of your foot and ankle needs.

Hyperhidrosis of the Feet

Hyperhidrosis is a rare disorder that can cause people to have excessive sweating of their feet. This can usually occur all on its own without rigorous activity involved. People who suffer from hyperhidrosis may also experience sweaty palms.

Although it is said that sweating is a healthy process meant to cool down the body temperature and to maintain a proper internal temperature, hyperhidrosis may prove to be a huge hindrance on a person’s everyday life.

Plantar hyperhidrosis is considered to be the main form of hyperhidrosis. Secondary hyperhidrosis can refer to sweating that occurs in areas other than the feet or hands and armpits. Often this may be a sign of it being related to another medical condition such as menopause, hyperthyroidism and even Parkinson’s disease.

In order to alleviate this condition, it is important to see your doctor so that they may prescribe the necessary medications so that you can begin to live a normal life again. If this is left untreated, it is said that it will persist throughout an individual’s life.

A last resort approach would be surgery, but it is best to speak with your doctor to find out what may be the best treatment for you.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact our office located in Pembroke Pines, FL. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
