“My feet sweat so much, it makes them smell badly."
Does this describe your feet?
At Podiatry Station we work with all types of feet, even the smelly sweaty ones! There is usually a reason for the sweaty feet, which can be addressed very easily. Once the cause of the excessive sweating has been addressed, the smell often disappears by itself.
Anyone can get sweaty feet, at any temperature or in any season during the year. Teenagers and pregnant women are more likely to get them because hormonal changes make them sweat more. Athlete’s Foot can also result in smelly feet.
You are also more likely to have sweaty feet if you’re on your feet all day, wear shoes that are too tight, are under a lot of stress, or have a medical condition called Hyperhidrosis, which makes you sweat more than usual.

After having been closed for more than 2-months, we are back and open to treat all patients. Following the advice given by Public Health England, and guidelines issued by The College of Podiatry, we are now able to treat all patients that are deemed to be safe. Health and safety is paramount, so we have introduced extra measures within the clinic to protect everyone. Patients can find out more about the changes being implemented on our website under ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19) Clinic Policy & Procedure’.
If you need to see a Podiatrist, please contact us and we will carry out a health check to confirm if we are able to offer you an appointment immediately. In the meantime, we are reviewing the situation on a daily basis, and will release updates on our website, by email and via our social media channels should the guidelines change again.
Appointments will only be offered to patients who we feel are no risk to others!
You can contact us by telephone on 0203 327 0194, or by email at email@example.com

Don’t give up… continue to stay safe, hopeful and happy. We will get through this!
Looking forward to returning to normality and seeing all our lovely patients soon…
