Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

As per your case history of burning sensation on arms, my treatment advice is -

1. Take good nutritious diet full of green leafy vegetables and milk.
2. Apply a soothing lotion like calamine lotion on affected region twice daily.
3. Take a vitamin B12 supplement once daily for 3 months. If problem persists then consult a dermatologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
