Sweaty feet 'need surplus of cotton socks'
People with sweaty feet problems should not fear - it is a situation which affects millions.

Speaking to leading Far Eastern news resource China View, Dr Li Yongmei, the chief physician at Longhua Hospital in Shanghai, has recommended the use of cotton socks as a way to stem problems relating to poor foot hygiene.

He said that "sweaty feet can easily lead to eczema if there are also unhealthy habits such as not washing regularly or changing socks often enough".

Dr Li added: "To cope with sweaty feet, ventilated shoes and pure cotton socks are a must."

If eczema develops, he notes, people should also boil their socks before hanging them up to dry.

According to Foot Care Expert, a person should always clean troublesome feet with fresh water, preferably with a shower nozzle and not in the bath as it washes away infection.

Socks make the perfect gift
