Cracked heels

cracked heels 2Is your skin also dry and cracked on the soles of your feet and around the toes?

Are the cracks on your heels bleeding and painful, making it difficult for you to walk?

If you allow the condition to continue, apart from being extremely unsightly, eventually untreated cracks may deepen to the extent that the dermis layer of your skin is affected. Your feet may then become extremely uncomfortable, making standing or walking very painful. Deep cracks may eventually bleed and become infected, leading to even more serious problems. Especially in the case of diabetics, or those people with impaired vascular sufficiency.

Treatment of Cracked Heels

  • Apply a moisturizing cream twice daily to the affected heels
  • Use pumice stone to reduce the thickness of the hard skin.
  • Avoid open backed shoes or thin soled shoes
  • Buy shoes with a good shock absorbing sole
  • Never try to pare down the hard skin your self with a razor blade or a pair of scissors
  • See your podiatrist
