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.
