A burning sensation in your feet/toes may be caused by nerve damage called neuropathy. Although many medical conditions can cause burning feet, diabetes is the most common. Most burning feet treatments focus on preventing further nerve damage and reducing pain.
Over-the-counter medicines like Advil, Aleve, Motrin IB, and Tylenol control pain in many people with burning feet. Prescription pain relievers may be necessary for severe pain.
For burning feet caused by athlete's foot, antifungal drugs can cure the fungal infection and relieve burning feet symptoms. Over-the-counter medicines like Micatin or Lamisil should be used first. Prescription antifungals are also available.
It's important to find out what is causing your symptoms for proper treatment.
