Houston podiatrist Dr Andrew Schneider treats sweaty feetFeet perspire...some people's more than others. In our hot and humid climate in Houston, we see our fair share of sweaty feet. Sweating feet will cause a perfect environment to harbor fungus. Fungus thrives in a warm, moist, dark shoe and waits for an opportunity to infect the skin or toenails.

 

The more your foot perspires, the more moisture is in the shoe. This increases the potential for fungal growth and infection. Foot perspiration can be controlled in many cases and fungal infections of the skin and toenails can be treated. Most don't consider what is living in their shoes. Your shoes can harbor fungus and need to be treated as well. This can be accomplished with using an antifungal spray, such as Tolcylen shoe spray, or by using an ultraviolet light which can disinfect the shoe without heat or chemicals.

 

Tanglewood Foot Specialists can offer solutions to control excessive foot perspiration, treat the athletes foot infection or toenail fungus, and prevent reinfection with proper disinfection of your shoes. Call our Houston Podiatry office for a convenient appointment.
