Detailed Answer:
Hi there.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic.

I have read your query and understood your problem.

Do you have any tingling or numbness over your foot ?

Do you have Diabetes or any family history of Diabetes or any other symptoms of neurological disorders ?

Do you have back pain that radiates to your feet ?

Since your are experiencing weird sensation of increased warmth over your foot it could be due to two conditions, either damage to the nerves supplying the skin of your foot or certain skin conditions which can occur due to Vitamin B deficiency or skin rash, abrasions, or infections.

Keep your feet clean regularly. Avoid right constricting footwear which can cause nerve compression syndromes. Avoid wearing footwear for long time. Avoid swear accumulation and keep the feet dry.

Eat healthy. Keep well hydrated. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol as these can also cause similar problems.

Kindly consult your Doctor and get a thorough examination and necessary investigations to rule out certain conditions as mentioned above.

I hope I have answered your query.

Thanking you.

Regards,

Dr. Aashish Raghu
