This is often made worse at night, making you difficult to sleep, though performing physical activities can also cause this condition to appear. People 45 and older are more likely to develop hot, red or burning hands and feet than other age groups. In many cases, this condition is temporary, but certain conditions can cause this condition to become permanent.

Possible Causes of hot red feet

There are a number of conditions that can cause the hands and feet to develop an uncomfortable burning sensation. Evaluating your other symptoms will help you narrow down the cause so you can get adequate treatment.

1. Hypothyroidism: Hypothyroidism is a condition that is caused when the thyroid is not producing enough of the necessary hormones. If this is left untreated it can cause the joints to develop a hot or burning sensation, which can manifest itself strongly in the hands and feet.

2. Kidney Dysfunction: If the kidneys are not functioning the way they should they can lead to a burning sensation throughout the body. This is caused when the body is unable to get rid itself of wastes through the bloodstream, leading to a buildup of waste. If the cells are constantly exposed to these toxins they can begin to break down, causing bodily damaged. If this condition is severe enough, the patient may need to begin dialysis treatments to remove the excessive wastes.

3. Liver Damage: Similarly, waste and toxins can build up in the body if the liver is not filtering them away the way it should.

4. Nerve Damage: Damage to the nerves can cause an uncomfortable burning sensation to appear. Conditions such as diabetes can cause this damage to appear. Managing these underlying conditions will be a key to eliminating your discomfort.
