Hello,

Burning feet can have several different causes like you may be having sensitivity to the fabric or leather dye in your shoes or socks, or even the detergent used to wash your socks. Also it can be due to improper socks textile.

Are you nearing menopause? Hot flushes and burning feet and legs are common in premenopausal syndrome.

But burning legs and feet can be  due to mainly Peripheral Neuropathy. Burning is one symptom of peripheral neuropathy, but it can also be a "pins and needles" sensation, numbness, tickling or tingling. One of the most common causes of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes. Alcohol abuse and nutritional deficiencies, such as vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia are also important causes.

Other causes of burning feet and legs include hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidism, kidney and liver disorders or underlying neurological disorder.

After walking, immediately change out of your shoes and socks, allowing the shoes to dry.You can use pain relievers such as aspirin or acetaminophen ( if you are not allergic to aspirin). Try changes in your shoes, socks, and insoles and rotate your shoes and socks, both between walking sessions.

If the symptoms still persist then pls consult a physician for a thorough check up and diagnosis.

Take care and do keep us posted on how you are doing.
