Erythromelalgia: The syndrome of red, hot feet (and sometimes hands)
Watch Mayo Clinic dermatologist Mark Davis, M.D., describe erythromelalgia and treatment options.
Erythromelalgia is a rare condition that causes extreme heat, pain and redness on the bottom of the feet. Sometimes it affects the entire foot and the hands too. You may be at particular risk of erythromelalgia if you have a bone marrow or blood (myeloproliferative) disease.
Your care at the Erythromelalgia Clinic in Minnesota is guided by a multispecialty team of doctors, including specialists in skin conditions (dermatologists), the nervous system (neurology), and the blood and lymph system (vascular medicine). Your visit might typically include specialized testing followed by an assessment of your signs and symptoms. Your doctors work together to arrive at an accurate diagnosis. They then develop with you a treatment plan that meets your needs and considers possible side effects of each treatment option.
The Erythromelalgia Clinic serves as a focal point for clinical research at Mayo Clinic to advance care for adults and children with erythromelalgia.
