Sweaty Feet

Over the last couple of months, my feet have become extremely sweaty.  I cannot identify a reason why this would happen... I wear the same things on my feet that I always do.  Thankfully, they do not smell.  The most irritating thing is that I wear flip flops a lot and my feet are sliding around in the flip flops because they're sweaty.

Do any of  you experience this?  Is this another joy of aging?  I've used spray deodorant on my feet with mild success.  It's very odd.

Dd has sweaty feet, too.  I used to sweat a lot on my face to the point where I was dripping.  :O. Hot flashes.  I now use deodorant and not antiperspirant.  i sweat more on my armpits, but I don't drip on my face.  healthffod stores carry it, and the men's deodorant (can't remember the name, but it's mostly red packaging?) in regular stores.  Just a thought.  You have to sweat from somewhere, so have you changed antiperspirants lately?

Not for me.  Weird. I wonder if it could be related to all the other odd symptoms you've been experiencing.  My hands wouldn't stop sweating last week after parkour--I think that was all the pole swinging we did.

I am not that old and have this issue. I dab on some roll on deodorant between my toes and on the top of my feet. It seems to help.
