Cracked heels can occur in both men and women and can be extremely painful if not fixed quickly. The cracks can split which allows a portal of entry for infections. Many people are often embarrassed about the appearance of their cracked, dry heels. But don’t worry! We treat cracked heels daily and can sort yours out too.
Cracked heels are caused when the skin around your heels splits apart. A mixture of dryness and pressure lead to cracked heels, as the skin becomes unable to keep up moisture levels and ultimately becomes fragile, leading to breaks.
Your Podiatrist will work out WHY you are getting cracked heels and then implement strategies to reduce the dry skin and cracks. This may include a footwear/sock/occupation assessment, advice on different types of moisturises, debriding back the thick dead skin and reducing breaks/cuts in the skin and potential infections. BOOK ONLINE HERE for an INITIAL GENERAL TREATMENT and we can fix those cracked heels for you!
