Work at it...: First off, make sure your feet stay dry and clean. Wash between the toes each day and wear fresh socks. •acrylic cushion sock fabric maintains resiliency and provides a more natural yielding, forgiving, dynamic environment for the foot (like walking barefoot in grass or sand). •result: more protection, more comfort. Secondly, use drying agents directly on the foot, like certain-dry or drysol.

Stop excess perspire: Controlling excess perspiration is a good start. Wearing socks that absorb moisture and letting feet air out whenever possible. A small amount of powder in shoes may help. Spray shoes with disinfectant: wear shoes that"breathe" properly. There are medications which can control excessive perspiration. Good hygeine obviously is also important.
