Peripheral neuropathy is a serious condition for many people. It often presents itself as a burning or tingling sensation inside the foot. This condition is most commonly seen in diabetics, and people with metabolic problems.
This can be a serious condition for many people because it inhibits the feeling at the surface of the foot. Many people with peripheral neuropathy will scratch, bruise and even break their foot without knowing. As a result, wounds and open sores will get infected and, if left untreated, can lead to ulcers and even amputation.
