Brief Answer:
could be due to vitamin B deficiency

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

As there is no redness or swelling or any wound, so chances are there that it could be burning feet syndrome which occurs due to vitamin B 5 deficiency.

So you may give him vitamin B-complex supplements and more of green vegetables and fresh fruits and see if it helps.

If still there is no improvement after two weeks or it gets worse then better show to a doctor.

Hope I have been helpful.

Regards,
Dr.Deepika Patil
