Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that occurs due to nerve damage, typically leading to numbness or pain in the hands and feet. You may feel tingling or burning, even a loss of sensation in these areas. This condition can develop due to an infection, metabolic issues, toxic exposure or even a traumatic injury.

Treatment Options For This Condition
Peripheral neuropathy can be a manageable condition if treated in a timely and effective manner. If the underlying issue is corrected, symptoms can often improve on their own.
Some treatment options include:
- Pain relievers
- Anti-seizure medication
- Capsicum (a cream)
- Lidocaine patches
- Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
TENS is a unique therapy option that uses adhesive electrodes on the skin to send a gentle electric current through the electrodes. This treatment has to be applied regularly to have positive effects.
