What is the treatment for burning feet because of neuropathy?

ANSWER

The most important treatment for burning feet because of neuropathy is to stop any ongoing nerve damage. In some cases treatment of the underlying disease will improve the neuropathy and symptoms. In other situations, like a small fiber neuropathy, where no cause can be identified, your doctor will focus on treating your symptoms.
