Craked heels or fissured heels occur due to a build up of calloused skin, the skin can become that hard that it cracks and can bleed. It can be caused by backless footwear and/or prolonged standing at work or home or dehydration of the skin. it can be made worse by other conditions such as athletes foot or psoriasis.
At Allerton Foot Clinic we can reduce the hard callus and file away the dry skin which will reduce the depths of the splits and allow better penetration of moisturisers. The feet will look and feel much healthier.
We provide a full range of podiatry and chiropody services in the Liverpool area of Merseyside.
