cracked-heelsCracked heels are a common problem often referred to as heel fissures. They are generally caused by dry skin and thick callus around the rim of the heel. If these cracks become deep it can be very painful for the patient and often they bleed.

Wearing open shoes usually make heel fissures worse, sometimes they are caused by mechanical factors (the way you walk.)

Heel fissures are treated by debriding the overlying callus and implementing the appropriate emollient regime.
