Erythromelalgia is a rare condition that causes burning pain and redness in certain parts of your body.
Erythromelalgia mainly affects the feet. Symptoms include heat, pain and redness.
Cooling or elevating the area may help relieve erythromelalgia. There are also creams, gels, sprays, tablets and medicines given into a vein.
Often it’s not clear what causes erythromelalgia. Sometimes it's caused by another medical condition or a faulty gene inherited from a parent.
