    It requires about 6-10 hours for direct contact with an object with 44 Celcius degrees to cause burns. As 44 Celcius degrees is comparable to a (very) hot shower... you really should see your doctor? You've been scalded.

    Look up "erythema ab igne" - does that look like what's happened to your foot?

    Otherwise, post a picture and we'll have another guess.

    Basically, don't do it again, and see your GP to see if they think it's worth seeing a dermatologist about.
