Podiatric benefits may be gained through a combination of advice and education regarding footwear and hosiery, as well as the best products to alleviate any signs of excessive sweating at the feet.
If your child has sweaty feet it is first necessary to establish if this is excessive, or if it is attributed to a dysfunction of the sympathetic nervous system. The first stage is an assessment, where we obtain a thorough history, which includes a medical history and a history of the problem, and how it is impacting your child.
Following the assessment a treatment plan will be put into place if necessary. Sometimes small lifestyle changes can have a big impact on sweaty feet, and these will be discussed with you in the consultation.
