Keep your feet dry for good foot health

When we talk about keeping your feet dry we normally are referring to keeping the feet dry from the penetration of water from the outside of the safety footwear to the inside of the footwear. In a number of cases you would be correct because that is the main function of waterproof footwear is for that reason, and the styles which are now available have been made possible by the invention of waterproof and breathable membranes. These membranes do help keep the water out however they allow the feet to breathe thus reducing the possibility of the wearer suffering from sweaty feet.

Although the individual who suffers from sweaty feet is often mocked by friends and family in truth keeping the feet dry from the elements as well as sweat is a serious foot health issue and because safety boots with waterproof membranes can help the feet to breathe they can help reduce the following symptoms.

  • Bad foot odour caused by bacteria in the sweat
  • Excessive and continued sweating can lead to athletes foot.
  • The build-up of sweat can also be a pre cursor to fungicidal nail infections.
  • Sweaty feet can also cause itchy feet and other skin irritations.

Each foot has around a quarter of a million sweat glands and therefore allowing the feet to breath and moisture to evaporate from a wicking lining in the footwear is essential to good foot health. Your footwear is not the only answer in helping to reduce sweaty feet, there are a number of things that you can do on a daily basis to reduce the possibility of your feet getting wet from sweat. These include.

  • Try and wear socks with minimum nylon content and try and purchase socks that are either 100 percent cotton or made from a modern synthetic, not nylon. Nylon will make your feet sweat more as it does not allow the feet to breathe.
  • Rotate your footwear and try to allow them to dry out naturally. It is always best to have two pairs of shoes or boots that you can alternate. Never wear wet shoes as this will lead to foot health problems.
  • Wash your feet thoroughly at least once a day using an antibacterial soap. Once washed ensure you dry your feet thoroughly including between toes. The toe area is were a lot of foot health problems start. Once dried thoroughly apply a foot antiperspirant or anti-fungal foot spray. This regime in a number of cases will help reduce foot odour and the onset of excessively sweaty feet.

The above advice for good foot health are only guide lines and we advise that if you do suffer from sweaty feet and you are concerned about it you should always consult your Doctor or Chiropodist first before trying any changes to your current foot health routine.
