Dry cracked heels

Dry cracked heels, often with a build up of callous, can cause distress and foot and heel pain when walking. The condition is usually worse in the summer when sandals are predominantly worn.

Treatment consists of daily use of a glass file or emery file followed by an emollient cream such as CCS Foot Cream, Flexitol Moisturising Foot Cream, or ClearZal Silk Smooth. Where callous is present ClearZal Callous Cream is recommended or by the regular daily use of Flexitol Heel Balm or CCS Foot Balm callous build up can be prevented.

Prolyne gel pressure protection pads applied daily to the heels are an excellant solution to this painful condition. The pads are self adhesive air permeable and reusable.

If the condition persists, the use of a heel softening sleeve overnight, helps to keep the skin from drying out.
