Thank you for your e-mail. There are various causes for burning sensation in the feet of which diabetes is the biggest cause. I would suggest that you consult with a podiatrist for a proper assessment and diagnosis. In the meantime, try and do toe exercises before going to bed to increase the blood supply to the feet and massage feet with "Deep Heat ointment". Only apply to intact skin and if no allergies present. For your nearest podiatrist www.podiatrist.co.za 0861 100 249
