At Dr. Mayer Salama and Dr. Daniel Salama in Dearborn MI, Farmington Hills MI , Clarkston MI, Trenton MI, Dr. Mayer Salama and Dr. Daniel Salama know that there are two types of burning feet. The first type, are feet that feel like they are burning but aren’t physically hot. The second type, are feet that burn and are hotter in temperature.

If your blood flow is increased, your feet will be hotter. Alcohol, vascular diseases, exercise, infection, and inflammation can all cause a temperature increase in the feet. Due to these various factors, it can sometimes be hard to diagnosis the exact cause of burning feet without further testing.

Clothing can also cause burning feet. Clothes insulate the feet and prevent heat from escaping. Socks, shoes, nylons and tights can all cause an increase in foot temperature and cause a burning sensation. While it isn’t completely abnormal to feel a burning in your feet, it is still important that at the first signs of burning, you seek the help of a podiatrist.

Diseases and disorders like alcohol abuse, diabetes and nutritional deficiencies can damage nerves in the feet. These damaged nerves will cause the feet to feel as if they are on fire. Other nerve injuries or trauma to the feet is can have the same effect. If the burning in your feet is due to nerve damage it can sometimes be reversed. If your podiatrist determines that your burning feet are caused by another illness not within the scope of their practice, they can refer you to a specialist.

Unfortunately, not all reasons for burning feet are known. Some cases are not even reversible, just manageable. If you have burning feet it is important that you call your podiatrist right away. If you do not have a podiatrist, consider calling Dr. Mayer Salama and Dr. Daniel Salama. They are highly trained professionals who have many years of experience treating all kinds of foot and ankle ailments. Call 313-274-0990 or make an appointment online. We look forward to speaking with you and finding a solution to your fiery feet.

Burning feet, medically known as neuropathy or paresthesia, is characterized by painful tingling sensations in the feet. The condition—which is more common in the summer—mainly occurs due to damaged and weakened nerves in the legs, which are more prevalent as one ages.

The prickling sensation associated with burning feet can be treated at home with mixtures containing water and either ginger juice, hawthorne, or thyme. Any of these remedies will relieve pain and help promote blood circulation.

Aside from neuropathy and paresthesia, several nerve complications can ail the feet. For assistance with a nerve disorder in your lower extremities, visit Dr. Mayer Salama, D.P.M. of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama will can provide you with a specific diagnosis and work with you to alleviate your symptoms.

Nerve Disorders of the Foot and Ankle

There are two nerve disorders of the foot and ankle called Interdigital Neuroma and Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. These conditions affect the hands as well, and are caused by stress and genetics. People who suffer from Interdigital Neuroma and Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome are prone to serious pain and inflammation in the area.

Pain that is associated with Interdigital Neuroma is often from local inflammation in the nerves in the front of the foot. Symptoms include pain, burning, and/or tingling sensations of the toes.

There are several steps a doctor will take to determine if one has Neuroma such as: radiographs, MRIs, and bone scans. Surgery is not required in many instances, and should only be considered when the patient is suffering from persistent pain.

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that is less common than Interdigital Neuroma. It only seems to affect patients who have severe ankle pain which begins in the bottom of the foot extending all the way to the calf.  In other instances one may encounter partial numbness and atrophy if the cases are extreme.

Athlete’s Foot: The Sole Story

If you suffer from itching, burning, dry, and flaking feet, this may be a sign of athlete's foot. Athlete's foot, also known as tinea pedis, can be extremely contagious, and it often infects shower floors, gyms, socks and shoes, and anywhere else feet may come in contact with. It is commonly found in public changing areas and bathrooms, dormitory style living quarters, around locker rooms and public swimming pools.

Solutions to Combat Athlete’s Foot

- Hydrate your feet by using lotion
- Exfoliate
- Buff off nails
- Use of anti-fungal product
- Examine feet and visit your doctor if any suspicious blisters or cuts are present.

What is Tinea?

- Athlete’s foot is often caused by the same fungus that causes ringworm (tinea).
- Tinea can invade other parts of the body as well, if the proper thriving conditions for it are met.
- Tinea thrives in mostly dark, warm and moist environments.
- Although many people never experience athlete’s foot, around 70% of the population may suffer from tinea at some point.

Lindsay Lohan’s Secret ShameAccording to the tabloid The National Inquirer, Lindsay Lohan has recently developed an athlete’s foot infection. The Inquirer’s sources claim that the fungus is making her feet smell bad, and that foot odor is actually a problem Lohan has apparently been dealing with for years.

“Lilo’s horrified by her athlete’s foot,” states a “friend” of the actress. “She has no idea where she caught it because she’s always so careful in communal bathrooms and spas. But she’s suffered smelly feet ever since she was a teenager, and it’s been a hugely embarrassing cross to bear.” Meanwhile, Lohan has been clean from drugs since being checked out of addiction rehab, and is the subject of an 8-part documentary currently airing on Oprah Winfrey’s TV network.

Athlete’s foot can make even the most attractive people feel less than beautiful. If you are dealing with athlete’s foot, see podiatrist Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama can treat your foot and ankle needs.
