Complications of peripheral neuropathy may include:

  • Burns and skin trauma. If parts of your body are numb, you may not feel temperature changes or pain.
  • Infection. Your feet and other areas lacking sensation can become injured without your knowing. Check these areas regularly and treat minor injuries before they become infected, especially if you have diabetes mellitus.
