An excessive production of sweat may affect both sexes and often starts in childhood or adolescence. Young adult men are particularly prone to it. The condition is usually less in the winter than in the summer.
The sweaty skin loses its natural elasticity resulting in easily obtained cuts and foot blisters as it will increase the friction of the foot in the shoe.
This sweaty environment is ideal for the establishment of fungal and bacterial infections such as athletes foot, which is often associated with foot odour.
