Hours & Directions

Foot or Shoe Dermatitis is common in people who have excessive sweating of their feet. Liquid sweat will dissolve many substances in the shoe or sock and cause direct contact and absorption by the skin. Common substances in shoes that can cause dermatitis include chromium salts used in the tanning of leather, formaldehyde, thiurams, carba compounds, colophony based adhesives, thioureas, glutaraldehyde, dyes, rubber compounds, methacrylates and epoxy based adhesives. When shoe dermatitis is suspected, plastic or wooden shoes are available as alternatives. Increased sweating of the feet should also be treated with antiperspirants.
