Thanks for your reply,

Foot sweating or as it's known in the medical literature as plantar hyperhidrosis, is a part of the excessive sweating syndrome.

Treatment options for are use of an effective antiperspirant.If over-the-counter antiperspirants do not control excessive sweating, you will require a prescription antiperspirant.

Other options are Botox infections you have to take them at regular intervals six month to one year.These are also very effective.

In some severe cases surgery is also preformed.

One more option is procedure known as Iontophoresis.In this procedure, the patient uses a battery-powered device to deliver a low current of electricity to the hands or feet while the patient's body is immersed in water.

Please visit you doctor for detailed examination and prescription of medication.
