Tea Bags for Hyperhidrosis of the Feet ? Dr. Oz said on Oprah ...

Dr. Oz mentioned this on an Oprah episode and created a buzz. many patients called me at the Center for Excessive Sweating to ask if this works. I told them that is a home remedy that I have heard before from an East Indian doctor who has prescribed it for years. i spoke to this doctor again and he believes that the way it works is that the antioxidants in the tea, namely tannins, kill bacteria which produce the odor in people that have excessive sweating in the feet. However, it does not reduce the amount of sweating in the feet - namely plantar hyperhidrosis.

When patiens have palmoplantar hyperhidrosis - sweating from the palms and feet - the sympathectomy procedure in the chest - micro ETS - is effective in eliminating palmar sweating in 99% of patients and plantar hyperhidrosis in 40% of patients,

Lumbar sympathectomy can reduce hyperhidrosis of the feet but it is associated with sexual dysfunction in men and therefore I do not recommend it to men.
