How can I avoid heel fissures?

Heel fissures develop when your skin is very dry and the heel is under pressure, so keeping your skin moist and your heels cushioned and supported is key. Wash and completely dry your feet daily. When your feet are clean, apply lotion or ointment to the tops, sides, bottoms, and backs of both feet. If your skin is already dry, you may need thicker ointment around the heel. Wear clean socks after moisturizing to keep the lotion on your feet. You may need to drink more water and supplement vitamins in your diet to improve your skin suppleness as well. Also, wear shoes with supportive backs and cushioned soles to help relieve the pressure on your heels.
Fissures can leave your body vulnerable to infection and may take some time to heal, especially if they are deep. If you have excessively dry skin or pain from cracked heels, don’t ignore it. Instead, contact Foot & Ankle Associates in Texas for an appointment or more information. Call (888) 784-5335 or visit the online contact page to reach us.
