If you experience foot skin irritation or itching it can be caused by a host of things, but an allergy to certain materials in your shoes could be the culprit.
When the weather turns cool and the bulky shoes come out, so can shoe allergies — also known as shoe contact dermatitis. Sometimes it manifests in the form of a flaking, uncomfortable rash.
Shoe contact dermatitis, is a skin inflammation that can be brought about by the chemicals and materials in certain shoes (rubber, glues and leather tanning chemicals –most often), could be affecting around 7 million people in the U.S., according to Tracey C. Vlahovic, an associate professor and practicing doctor at Temple University’s School of Podiatric Medicine.
“Limiting perspiration is key,” that the burning rash most often appears when sweaty feet rub against the allergy-causing components of the shoe. More instances of the condition can happen during colder seasons because many affected people tend to wear closed-toe and heavy shoes for longer periods of time.
While such skin problems usually occur to people who are already allergic to certain materials that are commonly used to make shoes, many could be entirely unaware of any allergy until the rash appears.
How can you treat foot allergies?
Once the skin irritation occurs, depending on seriousness, it can be treated by prescription medications (such as Elidel cream) or over-the-counter creams and ointments (such as Aveeno Intense Relief). It can also go away after the allergy-causing material is removed. In extreme cases, patients may need antibiotics or steroid injections to treat the allergy if it spreads to large parts of the body.
How can you avoid shoe contact dermatitis?
“Avoidance of the allergen can be difficult,” Still, she suggests everyone minimize sweating in their feet as much as possible — whether it be by wearing two pairs of socks or, for those who have to wear humid work boots on the job regularly, getting anti-perspiration Botox injections or customized shoes.
Additionally, most countries now have a system called Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). This system catalogues information on chemicals, chemical compounds, and chemical mixtures. However sensible and practical this advice is, it is often complicated because many of the products go under different names and there is a general lack of product information at the point of purchase. This is more difficult with footwear as the relevant information is rarely displayed. Therefore, as usual, we advise to always see your doctor before you take any medications so you can obtain a proper diagnosis and treatment
The shoe needs a great circulation system and this is one way to help prevent this irritation and not wearing the same shoe every day can also help.
Let’s talk about some of the great features of our Therapeutic/Orthotic footwear found at www.dtfootwear.com:
Remember, therapeutic/orthotic shoe, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style.
Let me mention a few reasons why we are growing so fast in the internet world and how we are helping those millions of people out there that need offloading or create less wear and tear to their feet.
We at www.dtfootwear.com will offer up to 3 sets of Heat Moldable Customized Inserts to you when you purchase a pair of shoes from us (FREE), and this is up to a $240.00 gift to you from us. Remember, if the bottom of your feet hurt – you lacking the in proper support in the foundation of your footwear. Then these Heat Moldable Customized Inserts are mandatory that you start using them.
Let’s break down each word ( Heat Moldable Customized Insert) for a better understanding:
Heat: means that they generate a 2 percent rise in the planter of your foot (bottom) and this in turns helps create better circulation to your feet, legs, knees, lower back and beyond. If you have edema or swelling you need these 3 sets of inserts that you change every four months, so you have a year supply from us and again FREE.
Moldable: means that our inserts will mold (100 percent) to every part of the plantar of your feet (bottom) and creates that perfect fit, support, balance, and comfort to your feet over a short period of wearing time.
Customized: means our inserts will fit you, in a short wearing period. As a simple molding procedure (that means each time you wear the insert it will form to every bottom position of your foot) and will offload and create maximum support to all necessary areas.
We carry sizes from 4A to 14E widths for Men and Women. Try to find all those sizes under one website- unheard of! But Yes, we do provide 9E 10E and 14E widths for Men and Women. Yes, we carry 4A (Slender eight styles) and 2A (Narrow 42 styles) for Ladies and B (Narrow 5 styles) for Men as well. So to repeat this (this is how vital these widths are to our site) that is available: Slender’s, Narrow’s to Extra Extra Extra Wide Widths (7E 9E 10E 14E) for Ladies. Narrow’s to Extra Extra Extra Wide (9E 10E 14E)Widths for Men.
We have styles in Men’s 5 to 6 (in length), and those are hard to find sizes.
We have extended bottoms for the protection of your plantar (bottom) of your feet, and there is no more hang-over, of your feet, dealing with our footwear.
We carry lengths up to a 20 for Men and 15 in Women’s.
Most of our styles are perfect for diabetics as well, but you don’t have to be a diabetic to fall in love with our footwear and inserts. 80 percent of our customers are individuals that need that added support (because their current shoe is lacking support and comfort and is very disappointing to them). They need the feeling of maximum support/comfort and the additional sense of “walking on a pillow” all day long (this pillow concept is from dealing with our unbelievable insert program) with their new footwear.
Again, receive 1 to 3 sets of Heat Moldable Customized Inserts (value up to $240) all for FREE – YES FREE!! Once you start wearing these inserts, you never go back to the conventional form of support. Most shoes and that is athletic, or comfort footwear provides poor supporting foot supplements or inserts.
We teach you how to measure your feet correctly and how our feet change, over the years, is astonishing – you don’t alone! Please if you are wearing an inside brace, let us know. If your shoes been too uncomfortable or tight over the past few months or years – you need to update your size and width information and this “inch program” is very easy to do at home. I wish you could be in our shoes and witness how many (especially Man) that been misfitting themselves over a significant period. YOU NEEED WIGGLE ROOM IN YOUR SHOES!
Still, more advantages that have helped us grow but I don’t want to put you to sleep!
