What is best for cracked heels?
Acne can affect anyone and in most cases it is harmless, but in some cases it can be due to diabetes or certain skin conditions. Heel cracks mean that the skin on the foot or heel cracks and creates pain or discomfort. Then bacteria can find their way in and cause infections. Signs of infection are redness, swelling and the skin feeling warm. To cure cracked heels, you should avoid too hot water, limit time in the shower or bath to 5-10 minutes, use mild products and apply moisturizer immediately after bathing or showering. In more serious cases of cracked heels with infections or if you have diabetes, you should consult a doctor.
What to do about self-cracks?
Self-cracks in the skin mean that the skin is so thick and dry that it cracks by itself. Self-cracks usually occur on the soles of the feet, especially on the heel and big toe. By lubricating the skin with fatty and emollient ointment or cream, you can relieve the discomfort. There are also ointments and plasters that can soothe, relieve pressure or numb the skin. For prevention, you can use shower oil instead of soap, among other things.
How to get rid of cracks on the heel?
To get rid of cracks on the heel, you should not file, but instead use a skin glue in the skin crack itself so that the skin is held together and creates a protective barrier. This speeds up healing and takes away some of the pain. Invest in creating a good routine and continue to lubricate your feet even after the cracks have healed. Organic ointments with, for example, beeswax or shea butter are very effective, it is also good to use a foot cream that contains urea.
How do you get rid of calluses on your feet?
You can get hard and thick skin on a small area of the foot. Calluses and corns can, for example, sit on the toes or under the foot. It is important to use good shoes in the right size and shape for prevention. There are also ointments and plasters that can soften calluses. However, you should not use these if you have diabetes, foot ulcers, reduced sensation in the feet or reduced circulation.
