You can try rotating your shoes so you don't wear the same ones twice. Some people spray antiperspirant on their feet or use foot powder.

I would also wear white cotton socks over your support hose. Change your support hose and socks daily.

Footbaths are also a good idea, using some vinegar added to the water, or black tea as the tannins in the tea are supposed to help shut down the sweat glands in your feet temporarily.

I use a soak with some lavendar smelling soap, and use a pumice stone to rub off excess skin. Bacteria supposedly thrives in the excess skin on the feet. I like lavendar as it is a nice aromatherapy, and I feel like I am giving myself a spa treatment.

Wear shoes that allow your feet to breath, like canvas, leather, or mesh, and stay away from synthetic shoes that just trap the sweat.

Check with your doctor too, to see if you have any issues like fungus or a bacterial infection, as they can give you medications for either.

If you can find support hose with cotton feet, that would be helpful, too.



If the mind mends, the body will follow.

I have to wear physician prescribed support hose all of the time and because they are nylon (or something like nylon) my feet perspire. It is upsetting. Any solutions?
