Burning feet might be a temporary problem due to athlete's foot or sensitivities to fabrics. But if the symptom occurs over a longer period, it can indicate a serious disorder and should be evaluated by a doctor.
One such cause of chronic burning hands and feet is sensory peripheral neuropathy. This results from damage to the nerves which transmit sensation from the arms, hands, legs and feet to the brain. The causes include:
Nutritional deficiencies, such as vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia

This could be due to a skin condition such as eczema, psoriasis or fungal infection.
It could be due to a deficiency in the blood circulation.
It could be due to nerve damage, for example in diabetes.
It could indicate liver damage.
Whatever it is - your husband should see a doctor, if only to have tests to eliminate the more worrying possibilities of those I mentioned.
