Cracked heels also called Heel Fissure, is a very common foot condition that can become problematic for the infected person. When skin becomes so dry, its color starts changing, and then it starts to crack. Often, the only problem with cracked heels is their appearance. However, the condition can be severe in some cases if the cracks become infected. Normally it can be treated at home by following a routine of home remedies, but if you feel any redness, soreness, or pain in any area then see a doctor. Following home remedies can be followed to get it repaired:

Cracked Heels: The Reasons And Possible Solutions

Use an emollient moisturizer:

 It penetrates the skin, reduces water loss, and improves the water content in the local cells. It fills the gap between cracks, making the skin appear smooth and soft. 

Apply an occlusive moisturize:

Instead of getting absorbed in the skin like an emollient moisturizer, an occlusive moisturizer forms a layer over the skin. It prevents the further loss of water that has already been absorbed. Petroleum jelly and mineral oil are included in an occlusive moisturizer.
