How To Treat Crack Feet
There are several reasons why people may experience dry, cracked heels. Our feet are responsible for holding up our body and therefore they withstand a
tremendous amount of pressure. When weight and pressure are applied to the heels of our feet, the skin expands outwards. If our skin is dry, it becomes
less elastic and rigid and therefore more prone to fissures and cracking. The most common causes of dry, cracked heels include the following: medical
conditions such as obesity, diabetes, eczema, hypothyroidism, Sjögren’s syndrome, juvenile plantar dermatosis, infections such as athlete’s foot,
biomechanical factors such as flat feet, heel spurs, or standing for long periods of time, particularly on hard flooring, and open-healed or poorly
fitting shoes, as well as dry, cold weather.
