Quick Quiz To Know Yourself

Many of us are afflicted by sweaty feet. But, the condition isn’t always related to our sweat glands alone. Pooja Salvi suggests that you take this quiz to find out more about the condition

1.  Do you often wear closed shoes or sneakers for more than ten hours during the day?
a) Yes.
b) No.

2.  Do you make it a point to wash your feet with soap every day when you get home and remove your shoes?
a) Yes.
b) No.

3.  Do you regularly wear socks with your shoes to protect your feet from chafing?
a) No.
b) Yes.

4.  Does your job require you to stand for long periods of time?
a) Yes.
b) No.

5.  Would you say that your diet is generally unhealthy?
a) Yes.
b) No.

Mostly As
It is not difficult to deduce that poor hygiene is causing your feet to sweat. The hot, humid weather combined with the stress your feet go through daily are other factors. It is important to combat this because, apart from bad odour, your sweaty feet can also cause Athlete’s foot or painful blisters. There are chances that this condition is a genetic problem, in which case it will require treatment over a long period of time. Regardless, it is advisable to follow a simple foot hygiene routine. Wash your feet with soap every day when you get home, apply cream and/or absorbent foot powder, and try not to wear the same footwear every day so that your shoes can dry out. And, always wear socks with your shoes — they absorb moisture and help quite a bit.

Mostly Bs
Your foot hygiene seems to be decent and so, it is no surprise that your feet don’t sweat and/or smell. However, there are still a few steps you can take to prevent the condition. Alternate between different pairs of shoes to prevent bacterial growth and remember to wash your feet with good quality soap.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Concentrate on work else you could lose some money through neglect or indifference. Stay clear of fresh proposals and also from those people who are known to give unwanted advice. You are better judge of your condition and take all measures to protect your job or financial interests. At a family gathering you may not like the overtures or attention of a person who is a pest, say so in your own interest. You will not be hurting anyone.
