Hi All, My husband suffers from anxiety and one of his symptoms is sweating feet (severe).  Does anyone have anything that works to control this?  Right now he uses OdorEaters in his shoes, and foot powder to absorb the wetness.  Anyone try anything that works to control this?  Thanks, KO

Good Morning,

I have heard  Zederna Insoles made from cedar wood prevent this problem. Maybe you could Google this product and see what info you can find.

I am sorry your hubby is having this issue and I am sure it is very uncomfortable for him.

Take care,

Gonna sound strange, but it does help.  Apply antiperspirant on the bottom of feet and in between toes.  Whatever kind you want.  You can use the spray, or roll on.  Put it on before bed or shortly before putting socks on.  Let it dry.  I do this all the time.  And it helps.  It won't eliminate it completely but it helps.  And I change my socks mid-day.  Just because I like "fresh socks" :-)

Wow! I had no idea sweaty feet could be from anxiety...I get that too but never related the two, just related sweaty palms to my anxiety.  I think I will try the antiperspirant as well!  Thanks!
