How to treat hard skin and cracked heels

Cracked heels, or heel fissures, are splits in the skin around the heel. When pressure is put onto the heel from our bodyweight while walking and standing, the skin needs to stretch and spread out a little. If the heel cannot stretch because the skin is dry and inflexible, it will split.

Hard skin forms on the top and outer edges of toes, on the ball of the foot and the back of the heel and are caused by on-going stress and pressure on the foot. It tends to cause a widespread feeling of burning rather than the acute pain caused by corns. Physically removing thick hard skin is a common approach to treating it, files are ideal for this – and latex or felt protective plasters are effective in relieving discomfort.
