How To Heal Cracked Heels

This video talks about how to treat or heal cracked heels

Hello I'm Charles Goldman, a qualified Chiropodist/Podiatrist. I run “The Foot Pad” chiropody and physical therapy clinic in Coven, Central London. Today I'm going to talk to you about various foot problems and their treatment.

Hi! In this video were going to talk about the treatment of cracked heels. Some people suffer quite badly from cracked heels and if left unattended, they can split bleed and cause secondary infections on the foot. The best treatment for this is to moisturize, obviously this counteracts the drying effect.

Some people are more prone to dry cracked feet. People who are overweight, athletes, etc. and the thing to do is to use a very good dry cracked heel foot cream.

There are several on the market. Ordinary creams and body lotions are not rich enough. Foot creams are generally better but also not good enough for basely cracked heels.

I recommend a cracked heel foot cream with 25 percent urea. There are several on the market. A couple of them are these, this one is “CCS foot cream” and “Dermatonics heel balm”, both have 25 percent urea.

These are very effective in treating the cracked heels. You apply them daily, once or twice for two weeks at it generally solves the problem. After that maintenance with ordinary foot cream is sufficient.

Urea is a natural moisturizer and is very important to use one of these creams. This is how I recommend you treat cracked heels. If you still have any doubts please see a chiropodist or podiatrist.
