2. Symptoms of Charcot foot

The symptoms of Charcot foot can include:

  • Redness, soreness, and swelling.
  • Increased warmth at the site of the injury; one foot may feel hotter than the other.
  • Pain and aching in the foot.
  • Deformity, such as the arch collapsing or the toes starting to curl under the foot.

Sometimes these symptoms are misdiagnosed as bone infection, though this condition is rare without a break in the skin.
