Erythromelalgia is a distressing and difficult to manage condition that affects the hands and feet and is characterized by intermittent attacks with the triad of symptoms of redness, warmth and burning pain that can last from minutes to days. It needs to be differentiated from chilblains and burning feet syndrome. It has a significant impact on quality of life and the ability to carry out the activities of daily living.
