    my husband has a problem and went to a podiatrist but got nothing from it. he has excessive foot sweating and burning of his feet because they become gaudded and large blisters cover the bottom of his feet and underand between his toes. he has tried everything you can get over the counter like foot sprays, lotions, powders-but nothing works. the doctor told him to get some polyproplene socks to wear under his cotton socks and prescribed him some kind of compounded cream. we were unable to afford the cream because insurance would not pay anything on it. it being $145 and him having to use it daily for now on we could not afford it. the doctor said there is nothing else he can give him to correct this problem. he is getting very depressed about it and his feet are really hurting him and the smell is unbearable. please let me know of something that we can do for him cause he really needs help!!!!

    I don't know what a "feet become gaudded" means. But it's not fair to say he got nothing from his visit to a podiatrist if he didn't try the medication that was prescribed. What was the podiatrist's diagnosis and what was in the cream that he didn't get? If it's the ONLY thing for his problem, I would like to know what it is. I'm not going to address the other symptoms, as I haven't enough information and I haven't examined him, but excessive sweating is common and can generally be controlled with special prescription antiperspirants and proper sock and shoe materials selection.
