Our heels take a lot of pressure, and we expect them to look great whether we are barefoot, in summer sandals or expensive strappy heels. However, our heels do need some TLC, otherwise the skin can become dry and prone to cracking.
Heel cracks are when the skin on our heels breaks apart, creating a deep fissure that is both painful and prone to infection. Some skin infections can also make the skin on your heels crack too. Heel fissures are potential risky for those with diabetes, so if you are diabetic, it’s important you seek professional treatment for cracked heels as soon as they become apparent.
