Cracked heels causing you problems?
For many of us, avoiding the unsightly appearance of cracked heels is all the motivation we need to take care of our feet. However, aside from being unpleasant to look at, cracked heels can be painful and problematic.
For many people, taking care of their own heels is an impossibility, thanks to mobility issues. The problem may start small, but by the time they seek help, the cracked heels have become a huge problem.
Do you have issues with dry heels?
Cracked heels have a number of causes, but essentially the issue is extremely dry skin in the area, which then cracks. These cracks can sometimes be so severe that they open up the healthy skin below, leaving you not only in pain but also at risk of infection.
The most common causes include:
Standing for long periods of time
Improper footwear (e.g. open back shoes)
However, specific health conditions can also cause cracked heels:
Skin conditions e.g. eczema psoriasis
