In brief: Burning thighs

This usually means that a subcutaneous nerve is being compressed.
One common example is a condition called meralgia paresthetic, which usually affects from the anterior lower lateral abdomen down to the thigh and/or groin. Other causes would include chemical burns (from topical medications or otc products) or sunburn.
