--> What are Cracked Heels?
Cracked heels are a common foot problem that are often referred to as heel fissures. Cracked heels are commonly caused by dry skin (xerosis), and made more complicated if the skin around the rim of the heel is thick (callus). For most people this is a nuisance and a cosmetic problem but when the fissures or cracks are deep, they are painful to stand on and the skin can bleed - in severe cases this can become infected.
--> What does a Cracked Heels look like?
The skin is normally dry and may have a thick callus which appears as yellow or dark brown discolored area of skin, especially along the inside border of the heel. Cracks in the skin are usually obvious.
--> Causes of Cracked Heels
* In active sweat glands
* Dry skin
* Prolonged standing
* Open backed shoes can be a contributing factor
* Surgery to the lower extremities
* Heel Spurs
* Mal-aligment of the metatarsal bones (the bone structure of the sole of the foot)
* Flat feet and high arched feet
* Abnormalities of gait (walking)
* Using excessively hot water is a contributing factor
* Eczema and psoriases can also be contributing factors
--> Another way to look at it:
Consider a tomato on the bench ... when you push on it from above, it wants to expand out sideways ... eventually the skin cracks. This is what happens to the normal fat pad under your heel ... as your body weight pushes down, the fat wants to expand sideways and the pressure on the skin to crack is increased. If the weight is excessive (eg prolonged standing) and the skin is not supple (eg callus and/or dry) and nothing is helping hold the the fat pad under the foot (eg open backed shoes)
--> Self treatment for cracked heels:
- Applying an oil based moisturizing cream twice daily is really important to get on top of this problem.
- A pumice stone can be used to reduce the thickness of the hard skin.
- Avoid open backed shoes or thin soled shoes.
- Never try to reduce the hard skin your self with a razor blade or a pair of scissors. There is a risk of an infection developing and taking too much off.
