    Good afternoon. Sweating in the feet can be quite normal. And the smell can be a result of the sweat getting stale and bacterial growth. Any rashes on your feet or itching?

    Hello. Sorry about your discomfort. Your condition is known as plantar hyperhidrosis. There are some things you can do to help improve it like changing your footware and wearing light material socks to air better air circulation. You can also use antifungal foot powder or foot sprays. Wash your shoes regularly and sun dry very well. Do not wear one shoe consistently. You can use antibacterial soap to wash your feet regularly. Hope you find these helpful

    Sorry no drug for now. But you could do a thyroid function test to see if the hormones are raised. This may be a cause. But you have to see a doctor first

    Good evening. Yes you can go for the test. But you should have patience for any drug you are taking to work. Also remember to always change your shoes and when possible wear open sandals. Take care

    my work doesn't allow sandals. and of course I don't wear same shoe everyday..but even on sandals the sweat still comes and its only on my feet that's why am so concerned about it ...and in like two years back there's nothing like such
    Dr. Ogechi M answered:

    I understand how you feel. The cause of your excessive feet sweating is unknown for now. I have advised you to always wash your feet with an antibacterial soap which you can get at any good pharmacy. Afterwards apply foot powder. You can also try applying antiperspirant roll-on or spray to you feet before wearing your socks

    Hello. The antiperspirant I'm referring to is same one you use for your armpit. Just get the a good one written antiperspirant and spray on your feet 2-3 daily. You should see results. Take care
