I am reading in one area(Wikipedia) that the foot has 400 pores……..another site says each foot has 2,000 pores and another says we have 250,000 sweat glands in our feet….HELP….please clarify for the debate!
Hello and thank you for your question. I’m not sure of all the sources you are referencing, however the most accurate would be the 250,000 sweat glands. Not all sweat glands release into a pore so this must be considered as well. Some of the above referenced sites could have meant 2,000 pores per square inch – so I would confirm your sources. Thank you.
