Smelly Sweaty Feet

Throughout the average day, the body naturally perspires to regulate heat in the body. In some individuals, natural perspiration is excessive in the feet which results in sweaty feet. This condition is known as Hyperhidrosis and is defined as increased perspiration beyond what is necessary to cool the body. Sweaty feet can result in very smelly feet! This condition can be a very embarrassing for the affected patient.


Sweaty feet- The patient may experience discomfort while walking due to the build up of perspiration in the socks and shoes. In some cases, this condition can lead to the skin structure becoming weak. This in turn will cause the skin to peel which may cause patches of raw skin, these can be very painful when the patient is on his/ her feet. It may also allow fungus and bacteria to enter the skin and cause a infection to the skin. Athletes foot is very common with patients who suffer from hyperhidrosis.


Hyperhidrosis (sweaty feet)- While doctors are not sure how this condition starts, the most likely cause is a genetic one. This condition has been associated with over activity in the sympathetic nervous system. Specifically, it is the Thoracic Sympathetic Ganglion Chain, which runs along the vertebra of the spine inside the chest cavity. The chain controls the glands, known as apocrine glands, responsible for perspiration throughout the body. The eccrine sweat glands are mainly concentrated in the hands and the soles of the feet. Sometimes people may perspire heavily because of other illnesses such as hyperthyroidism, psychiatric disorders, menopause and obesity.
