Burning foot : Burning on side of foot could be nerve being compressed in foot but doesn't sound like interdigital nerve compression. Depending on the final diagnosis there are options available like medications which work on nerves ( amitryptyline , nortyptiline) , or decompression surgery or nerve block . Please see your doctor .
