Cracked Heels

Look out for cracked heels this summer.

In warm weather, we tend to wear open shoes or sandals. This can lead to drying of your skin, especially your heels where the skin is thicker. Cracks can form in the thick skin on your soles and the backs of your heels. Placed under pressure when you walk or stand, these cracks can split and cause pain and bleeding. Splits can be a site for infection and are potentially dangerous for people with diabetes.

So if your heels crack up this summer… bring them in to Feet First for help.
