The problem of dry cracked heels is caused mainly from heredity. Heredity is something we can’t change, however your doctor can help control and treat the problem. If your heel is cracked and bleeding, it is vital to see a podiatrist because any open wound can become infected. If you are only dealing with dryness and cracking, applying a good moisturizing cream at least twice a day can help. Try sleeping with socks on at night after your apply cream to your feet; this will help soften your skin. We have an over the counter product, Kerasal, that is great for dry, cracked feet! After the dry skin is softened, use a pumice stone to remove the exfoliated skin.
If you are finding that these solutions are not working, your podiatrist will have several prescription cream options.
