Cracked heels are caused by the cracking or splitting of skin which has become dry or has thickened, due to a callus. A cracked heel means the skin has lost elasticity and suppleness, meaning the skin can crack under simple pressures such as walking.
A cracked heel can be very painful and cause bleeding. Podiatry care can pinpoint the cause for cracked heels and treat any underlying causes providing the right advice.
