Description

Cracked Heels is a disease of the Heels.
When the skin of Heels becomes so hard and dry that it leads to cracks on the Heels is termed as Cracked Heels.

We usually tend to pay less heed to our Heels. We are often busy embellishing our faces, hair or Skin.
When the skin of the Heels is thick and hard it causes cracks or splits.
Cracked heels may be the result of neglect. They may also be a result of walking barefoot or stark poverty. In that case they may be cured by local applications.
However, if the cracks persist, even after good care, there must be a metabolic disorder. Look for other parts of the body with thick and coarse skin.
