A:   Burning type of pain on your back could be due to some infections like chicken pox. herpes zoster or due to neuralgic pains seen in radiculopathies etc. If you don't have vesicles or blisters on back, it can not be infectious disease. It could be mostly neuralgic pain. Consult a physician for further advice.
