What Can I Do About My Sweaty Feet?

Sweaty feet are a common problem for athletes -- but excessive sweating can be embarrassing. Here, learn a few quick-fixes for extra-moist feet.
Question: What can I do about my sweaty feet?

Answer: First, try spraying them with antiperspirant, and keep them bare (or in sandals) as often as possible. Choose leather shoes and absorbant cotton socks. "If that doesn't help,ask your doctor about Drysol, a prescription antiperspirant," suggests Mervyn Elgart, M.D., a clinical professor of dermatology at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences in Washington, D.C. Or try Drionic (from www.drionic.com) a device that uses a low battery current to temporarily plug sweat glands.
