How to heal heel cracks caused in winters?
Hi, I am a 20 years old female. I have cracks on my heels. It usually happens in winters. Cracks are so deep that it even hurts when I walk. Is there any solution? How can I heal heels cracks?
@nisha-0 Hello, Cracked heels are a common foot problem. I also had it when I was 24 years old. Have you visited a dermatologist as it hurts you while walking?
@rishu No, I didn't.
@nisha-0 Yes, in your case you should visit a dermatologist, but here are some remedies that you can try.
- Apply balms and moisturizer balms contain ingredients to moisturize, soften, and exfoliate dead skin.
- Soak and exfoliate your feet's skin tends to split when you apply pressure. Soaking and moisturizing your feet can help with this.
- Applying honey may work as a natural remedy for cracked heels.
- Applying coconut oil is recommended to treat dry skin, eczema, and psoriasis. It can help your skin retain moisture. Using coconut oil after a foot soak could be a good option, too. Coconut oil’s anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties may damage your cracked heels if they’re prone to bleeding or infections.
If your case is severe then do seek medical help.
