Cracked Heels Information and Treatment Dry Cracked Heels?
Try Our Doctor Recommended Footcare Creams
Dry Skin is the primary culprit behind cracked heels. While the Dry Skin itself is not dangerous, if untreated and bleeding and infection result, it could be a serious problem for diabetics and older patients. Dry, cracked heels often appear with increased age, poorly fitted shoes, diabetes, and dry indoor air.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Dry, cracked heels are best treated with quality therapeutic ointments and creams, avoiding lotions that may contain drying alcohol. Use doctor recommended footcare creams that are especially formulated for dry, cracked heels and calluses, especially at night. Wear specially designed socks that help absorption. Wear comfortable shoes with doctor recommended insoles or other corrective devices that reduce the risk of friction and rubbing against the injured heel.
