The appearance of cracked heels is persistent, can make you feel self-aware and can be painful. During the initial stages, cracking of the heels manifests by what we call a heavily thickened stratum corneum (roughness and flakiness). It can be very hard to effectively treat this on your own.
Treating the hard skin on the foot’s heel involves removing such thickened, dead skin by using a milling machine. After removing hyperkeratoses, thorough purification and development of changes with antiseptic principles, a mask with a medicinal preparation is applied to moisten and relieve irritation.
The treatment is usually repeated every two to four weeks for best results.
The results depend not only on the skill and expertise of the podologist. But also on the patient’s regularity in the use of preparations recommended by the clinician.
