Heel fissures is the term for cracking of the skin of the heels. This can be a painful condition that can cause bleeding. Open-backed sandals or shoes that allow more slippage around the heel while walking are often culprits that cause heel fissures. Skin conditions, such as eczema andpsoriasis, can also lead to heel fissures. The skin thickens as a result of the friction. Wearing proper shoes and the use of deep skin moisturizers and lotions can reduce the dryness associated with the condition and allow the foot to heal.

TESTIMONIAL

My experience at Laurel Foot & Ankle Center was great. When I arrived the waiting room was packed and I thought to myself: “I will be here all day.” But to my surprise I got put into a room within 8 minutes of me sitting down. They were very fast! I was greeted by a very insightful doctor, Dr. Smith, who knew exactly how to help with my heel problem. I would definitely recommend to anyone with foot problems!
