Hello, all you people out there!

I know, from my father telling me so, that I've had sweaty feet since I was born. :huh:

This means my feet sweat, even when they're luke warm, and uncovered. I know, because they do so, right now, causing me lose traction with the floor. :blink:

Just half day wearing socks and shoes, ends in water logged socks; and a smell that keeps my pet cat away.

Just wondering, do others have such a problem, or have they had such a problem?

If so, any suggestions as to treating this? Love to hear any, no matter how silly. :)

Thanks.

Yes! I do have a suggestion! There are anti-perspirant products for excessive sweating issues that contain Aluminum Chloride. They're not like your average Secret or Lady Speed Stick, these actually work, very well in fact. They're a bit more expensive than a typical anti-perspirant, but still very affordable, and well worth it. The one I use is called Certain-Dri, but just look for a product that contains a minimum 12% Aluminum Chloride. It will probably be a liquid in a roll-on applicator. It's not really intended for use on feet, but my boss used a similar product for his feet and he says it worked well. Wash your feet just before using, and make sure they're dry before applying (just before bed if you want it to be effective.) Dry them with a hair dryer or something if necessary. If your problem persists, you can probably get a higher concentration if you get a prescription from your doctor. Here's the best part! "aluminum chloride in high concentrations can prolong the swelling and may ultimately shrink the sweat gland, decreasing the amount of sweat it can produce. " - http://health.howstuffworks.com/skin-care/underarm-care/problems/question627.htm In my case, this has proven to be accurate, and in my boss's case as well, as he no longer needs to use anything and his feet don't sweat much anymore (don't ask me how we ever got onto the topic of sweaty feet, I really don't know).

Anyhow, good luck!

12 Percent aluminium chloride... Gotcha.

And BTW, I have tried several over the counter stuff before, that didn't pan out.

Thanks

12% minimum. Ask the pharmacist for the strongest concentration they carry, it may go as high as 25% depending on the products they carry.

      Yay Josie! Looking good! 🤗

      Hi, due to my weight and being overly hairy at the moment in all the wrong places I suffer regularly from Jock itch during the summer months. (I feel like I am permanently on creams for it) I am just wondering if there is any practical underwear that is for everyday use out there that helps avoid this issue. 😳😳😳
    • Josie Beth
      Pardon the stubble and no makeup but I was so excited to put this outfit on that I had to share the picture. It’s really doing a lot to boost my confidence about going full time in the future. Maybe not in outfits like this all the time but I like most of what I see in the mirror. 
    • BananaPowered95
      Wise words! I feel like im finding who I truly am finally! Ill start trying to use more masculine clothing maybe and see how it feels probably... Letting my masculine side free!   It's strange to look back and see my denial of my feelings 
    • SugarMagnolia
      That's really good! It definitely makes an emotional connection with me. Well done ❤️
    • SugarMagnolia
      What great updates, Michelle. Thank you for sharing! It's always good to take those scary first steps and have them turn out well ❤️

      Hugs,

      This is great.  I love the imagery of the Ravens and Butterflies.   Your choice of colors are beautiful.  Jani

      Yes we all have our unique stories yet we are very similar.  No aliens here!   You can be the person you wish to be.  Life isn't always easy, even for cis people, so jump in and be you, be happy.    Jani
    • Jani
      You are certainly not alone.  There are many of us that have similar experiences and we are happy.  You can be too.  Be you!
    • BananaPowered95
      I've been checking the forums lately - it's interesting how many of us have different experiences ! And how others feel like this, I always thought I was an alien! I identified with a lot of stories here and it's nice knowing I'm not alone in this I have some thinking to do yet but being like this forever feels like hell Thanks y'all for the kind answers! Kudos! 😄

      Hello Kylara and welcome!  Thank you for sharing.  You are correct that you can go as far as you wish and be comfortable with your choice.  Bravo for you.  It sounds like you and your wife have a great life.  See you around!     Jani
    • Jani
      This is exciting!  I got simple stainless studs as well when I got mine done.  I still wear them when I go to electrolysis or work in my shop.  Brings back fond memories!     Hugs, Jani

      There's something incredibly powerful too about simply taking action. It helps us to avoid feeling like victims and focus on what we're doing as opposed to what others are doing against us. So, glad to see you standing up, Kirsten! 

      Fight like a girl, baby! 💪✊🤼‍♀️
