The phrase “cold feet” usually signifies apprehension regarding an event, but in the medical field, people can undergo this innervation due to various conditions. Our feet are naturally sensitive. They have abundant nerve endings, arteries, and sweat glands. That’s why they can experience multiple sensations, from warm to cold. But if you have chronic cold and sweaty feet, it is time to visit your podiatrist, who can accurately diagnose and treat your foot conditions.

Poor blood flow in the lower extremities can be caused by certain medicines like those for migraines, high blood pressure, or even ones for the common cold. Another reason for cold feet is the diseases that affect the heart, arteries, and other blood vessels. Neuropathy and hormonal disruptions can also become the cause.

That explains the cold feet. When the feet get clammy, this is due to sweat glands in the feet becoming overactive. They produce excessive sweat, creating a moist environment that provides the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and fungi to thrive. This can result in unpleasant odors and fungal infections like athlete’s foot. This can be because of stress or a genetic predisposition. Both causes signal the brain to release more sweat to cool the lower extremities.

The good news is that this condition of cold feet and hyperhidrosis can be treated. If you’re experiencing any such symptoms for a prolonged period, see a professional foot doctor for ways to correct the issue. Early examination, diagnosis, and treatment can prevent suffering and long-term damage to your feet.
