Cracked heels are a common problem nowadays. They can be a cosmetic problem, but a painful condition too. No one likes to see their heels cracked – it’s an unpleasant sight.
Dry skin and thick calluses that look like brown discolored patches of skin are the usual symptoms of cracked heels. The problem may cause itching, inflammation and peeling of the skin, and the cracks can sometimes bleed.
