Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem concerned by hot flashes in the bottom of left foot.
There can be various reasons for the hot flashes under the feet.One study concluded that in the patients with diabetes and peripheral neuropathy, tissue inflammation resulted in higher temperatures, especially under the toes and heels.
You can consult your personal physician for definitive diagnosis as the same is not possible online.
Hope this helps. Take care.
Note: This post is not to emphasise final diagnosis as the same cannot be made online and is aimed just to provide medical information and no treatment suggested above be taken without face to face consultation with health care professional.
