Re: burning sensation on toes
Burning in the toes can be from several things-athlete's foot (fungal infection of skin), which causes peeling skin, odor and sometimes itching. Arthritis in toes can burn. Peripheral neuropathy is common and caused by several things, commonly diabetes. It often causes numbness as well. He should see his doctor, especially if no evidence of skin rash or arthritis is present. Many causes of peripheral neuropathy are treatable, those caused by low thyroid, vit B12 or folate deficiency, etc. If the cause is not identifiable, the symptoms can be treated to make him more comfortable.
