Athlete's Foot

One of the most annoying, common, yet easily treated foot conditions is athlete’s foot. Though often
found between the fourth and fifth toes, athlete’s foot can appear anywhere on the foot, and is
contagious.

Causes:

As the name suggests, the most common cause of athlete’s foot is perspiration, meaning everyone – not
just athletes – are susceptible. Wet feet trapped in closed-in shoes, socks and hose provide the perfect
environment for the athlete’s foot fungus, which thrives in warm, dark, moist climates.

Symptoms:

Do your feet itch or burn? Do they feel like they’re on fire? Also called tinea pedis, athlete’s foot can
result in red, burning, scaly, itchy feet, and usually appears as a scaling rash, making your feet feel like
they’re "on fire." Some strains can cause small blisters or fluid-filled vesicles to appear on inflicted areas.

Relief and Prevention:

The best way to prevent against athlete’s foot is to keep your feet dry. If you do get athlete’s foot,
however, careful hygiene and the regular use of anti-fungal creams and powders should alleviate
symptoms.

Make sure you practice the following to guard against athlete’s foot:

Wash feet with an anti-bacterial soap.
Dry feet well after showering or bathing.
Apply anti-fungal powders and creams to absorb excess moisture.
Change your socks often, especially after exercising or perspiring.
Wear rubber sandals when using public showers or pools, or when you go to the gym.
If the problem persists or reoccurs on a regular basis, The Podiatry Institute recommends that you see a
podiatrist to determine if the skin rash is due to another cause.

Bromhidrosis

Bromhidrosis is the medical term for foot odor. If taking off your shoes clears a room, you may be
suffering from this condition.

Causes:

One of the top causes of bromhidrosis is excessive perspiration (hyperhidrosis) and moisture, which
provides a breeding ground for bacteria and yeast. When sweat and cellular debris from the bacteria and
yeast begin to break down, you’ll notice a fetid foot odor emanating from the direction of your feet.
Since bromhidrosis creates an environment for the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria and
fungus, infections such as athlete’s foot or toenail fungus may soon follow.

Additional common causes of bromhidrosis include:

Excessive anxiety
Various skin conditions
If a particular health condition is causing your excessive sweating, you may also notice that you have
sweaty palms, excessive perspiration under your arms and in your groin area.

In turn, excessive sweating can indicate the presence of other health conditions more serious than
bromhidrosis, so it is always good to discuss the problem with your physician.

Relief and Prevention:

The most important way to relieve bromhidrosis is to keep your feet clean and dry.

Shower regularly with anti-bacterial soap.
Use foot powders and sprays specifically designed to keep feet dry.
Change your shoes and socks often.
Rotate your shoes (especially athletic shoes).
Use insoles that can be changed frequently to prevent the odor from staying in your shoe.
Wear sandals during warm weather.
Launder, disinfect or discard foul smelling shoes.
If bromhidrosis persists, and excessive sweating also becomes a problem in other areas of your body,
please consult a physician.

Foot Odor  

Does a strange, unpleasant smell find its way to your nostrils seconds after your shoes come off? Do you
notice others wrinkling their noses in disgust when confronted with your bare or shoeless feet? If taking
off your shoes clears a room, you may be suffering from a condition known as bromhidrosis.

Perspiration is normal and healthy, but when it becomes excessive, it can leave a foul foot odor lingering
on feet and in your shoes that’s especially noticeable when you take them off. Most people’s feet will
likely perspire during exercise or in warm weather; if you have bromhidrosis, however, you’ll notice
excessive sweating and smelly feet year round, even when you are not engaged in strenuous activity.

Causes:

One of the top causes of foot odor is excessive perspiration (hyperhidrosis) and moisture, which
provides a breeding ground for bacteria and yeast. When sweat and cellular debris from the bacteria and
yeast begin to break down, you’ll notice a fetid foot odor emanating from the direction of your feet.
Since bromhidrosis creates an environment for the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria and
fungus, infections such as athlete’s foot or toenail fungus may soon follow.

Additional common causes of foot odor include:

Excessive anxiety
Various skin conditions
If a particular health condition is causing your excessive sweating, you may also notice that you have
sweaty palms, excessive perspiration under your arms and in your groin area.

In turn, excessive sweating can indicate the presence of other health conditions more serious than foot
odor, so it is always good to discuss the problem with your physician.

Relief and Prevention:

The most important way to relieve bromhidrosis is to keep your feet clean and dry.

Shower regularly with anti-bacterial soap.
Use foot powders and sprays specifically designed to keep feet dry.
Change your shoes and socks often.
Rotate your shoes (especially athletic shoes).
Use insoles that can be changed frequently to prevent the odor from staying in your shoe.
Wear sandals during warm weather.
Launder, disinfect or discard foul smelling shoes.
If foot odor persists, and excessive sweating also becomes a problem in other areas of your body,
please consult a physician.

Foot Perspiration

Are your shoes and socks soaking wet when you remove them? Do unsightly dark marks often appear
under your arms, staining shirts and making you feel embarrassed? If so, you may be suffering from
hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by excess sweating in the hands, feet, armpits and/or groin
region.

Hyperhidrosis is not dangerous to your health, but can create an environment for the growth of
microorganisms such as bacteria and fungus, which can in turn produce such infections as athlete’s foot
or yellow, crumbly, thick toenails (toenail fungus). It’s important to help your feet stay cool, such as
through specialty socks with fibers designed to keep perspiration away from the foot, to guard against
these types of ailments.

Causes:

While perspiration is normal and healthy, hyperhidrosis occurs when you have overactive sweat glands,
which produce more than enough sweat to keep your body cool.

In some cases, hyperhidrosis can be the result of other more serious health conditions. If you think you
might have hyperhidrosis, discuss the problem with your physician.

Additional common causes include:

Excessive anxiety
Various skin diseases such as fungal or bacterial infections or contact dermatitis
Symptoms:

Everyone’s feet perspire during exercise or in warm weather. You know you have hyperhidrosis,
however, if excessive sweating becomes a chronic condition that occurs year round – even when you
are not engaged in strenuous activity.

Relief and Prevention:

Try these tips to relieve hyperhidrosis:

Keep your feet clean and dry
Shower regularly with anti-bacterial soap
Use foot powders and sprays specifically designed to keep feet dry.
Use anti-perspirants regularly.
Change your shoes and socks often.
Rotate your shoes (especially athletic shoes).
Use removable insoles that can be changed frequently to allow them to dry out.
Wear sandals during warm weather.
Wear socks that specifically provide cool comfort
Recently, doctors have started using Botox to curb hyperhidrosis symptoms. According to WebMD.
com, some people have found that one Botox treatment can provide up to a year’s relief from excessive
sweating.

If the condition persists, and excessive sweating is also a problem in other areas of your body, please
consult a physician.



Hot Feet  

Feet may "feel hot" or they may actually be hot depending on the causes of your particular symptoms,
which can include the following:

Burning pain
Red, warm or hot feet
Sweating of the feet
Causes, Symptoms and Treatment Options:

Erythromelalgia is a rare syndrome characterized by the dilation (opening up) of blood vessels,
accompanied by burning pain, increased skin temperature and redness of the feet. Warm temperatures
usually trigger this condition, but here are some tips for treatment and prevention:
Rest the legs.
Elevate the legs.
Apply cold therapy.
Take aspirin (650mg to 1mg, 4 times a day).
Your doctor may also prescribe oral vasoconstrictor medications.
Peripheral nerve compression can result in intermittent or constant burning pain in the feet. Reduce
compression to the nerves if possible:
Do not cross your legs or ankles.
Do not wear tight pantyhose.
Immediately treat any back and hip injuries, which affect the nerves in the legs.
Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the feet) and chronic athlete’s foot can also cause your feet to itch
and burn – especially after an athletic workout.
Anti-perspirants (for hyperhidrosis) and anti-fungal creams (for athlete’s foot) are good treatment
options.
Diabetic Neuropathy causes burning in the feet, along with the following:
Diminished sensation and the inability to feel pain
Numbess
Tingling in the toes
Increased sensitivity to pain
