Q
What should I do for cracked skin on my heels?

A

Cracked skin on your heels need attention right away.  Soaking your feet in water does not help, and may even worsen the condition because the water may soak up the natural oils that occur on your skin that keep moisture in.  Our doctors recommend a urea cream such as Gormel 20%, or Foot Miracle cream, both available at our office.  If the condition does not improve, it is time to make an appointment with one of our doctors who may determine that there  is a concommitant fungal or other infection, or rule out other skin conditions.  So contact our office today to find out the best treatment.
