Have you ever wondered if your feet are excessively moist? If your feet slide in your sandals, or if your socks are damp at the end of the day- they are! Besides affecting function, moist feet can predispose a person to skin issues. These problems can include cracked dry heels, athletes foot, or fungal toenail infections. These issues can be recurring if the initial source of moisture is not controlled.
The easiest, and most effective solution I have found is as simple as changing your socks! Using a Merino wool sock is the best non medicinal means of treating foot moisture because it wicks moisture away. The quality of the skin improves visibly within one week, which is truly astounding considering some patients have been dealing with the effects of hyperhidrosis for years. Merino sheep are a certain breed of sheep whose wool is not itchy, and prized for commercial use. There are fine weaves suitable for warm temperatures and dress environments, as well as heavy weaves for winter. All in all, a truly remarkable material for an unsavory environment.
