Foot Dry Skin Treatment in Irvine

Dry Skin

In some individuals, natural perspiration is excessive in the feet which results in sweaty feet. Dry Skin condition is known as Hyperhidrosis or dry skin and is defined as the production of perspiration beyond what is necessary to cool the body. Sweaty feet can result in very smelly feet! This condition can be a very embarrassing for the affected patient. If the body is unable to perspire to regulate the heat in the body, a patient will suffer from dry skin. This is known as hypohidrosis. Dry skin can lead to other skin related complaints. The sweating process itself is controlled by the sympathetic nervous system. The involuntary nervous system maintains the five million or so sweat glands throughout the body. Visit our podiatrist in Irvine

Appearance of Dry Skin

Sweaty feet - The appearance of very sweaty feet with a foul adore will be present. Dry skin - This condition can affect the whole foot. However, it is more inclined to affect the heel. The affected area will have white flaky type skin with possible cracks in the surface.

Dry Skin Symptoms

Sweaty feet - The patient may experience discomfort while walking due to the build up of perspiration in the socks and shoes. In some cases, this condition can lead to the skin structure becoming weak. This in turn will cause the skin to peel which may cause patches of raw skin, these can be very painful when the patient is on his/ her feet. It may also allow fungus and bacteria to enter the skin and cause a infection to the skin. Athletes foot is very common with patients who suffer from hyperhidrosis.

Dry skin- The patient may experience an itchy sensation on the bottom of their feet. This is due to the skin crumbling and agitating the patient. In some cases, the dry skin around the heel may become extensive and lead to fissures. Fissures are cracks in the skin which can be very painful to walk on and also provide a port of entry for bacteria to cause infections

Dry Skin Causes

Hyperhidrosis (sweaty feet) - While doctors are not sure how this sweaty skin condition starts, the most likely cause is a genetic one. This condition has been associated with over activity in the sympathetic nervous system. Specifically, it is the Thoracic Sympathetic Ganglion Chain, which runs along the vertebra of the spine inside the chest cavity. The chain controls the glands, known as apocrine glands, responsible for perspiration throughout the body. The eccrine sweat glands are mainly concentrated in the hands and the soles of the feet. Sometimes people's skin may perspire heavily because of other illnesses such as hyperthyroidism, psychiatric disorders, menopause and obesity.

Hypohidrosis (dry feet), (dry skin) - In this condition there is a under activity of the sympathetic nervous system coupled with a under activity of the appocrine glands. Certain medications that a patient is taking may also lead to dry skin. As we become older our ability to produce sweat to regulate body heat may be affected. Therefore, older patients are more inclined to suffer from excess dry skin.
