Erythromelalgia

Community, Stories & Info

Erythromelalgia is a rare disorder that usually affects the skin of the feet and/or hands and causes redness, intense heat and pain. The condition may be a primary and isolated condition, or occur secondary to another disorder. The underlying cause of erythromelalgia is unknown, but it is thought to be caused by a dysfunction in the normal constriction (narrowing) and dilation (widening) of blood vessels.
