Painful Cracked Heels

Hi All,

I have been dealing with painful creacked heels for many years. I have tried all of the lotions and creams and nothing helps. I have also recently tried a pedicure, but I think that may have actually made it worse. With summer here, I am either barefoot or wearing flip-flops and my feet are a mess.

Does anyone have a tried and true method to help heal cracked heels? What products do you use?

Thanks for any advise or suggestions.

Re: Painful Cracked Heels

I got a pedicure last week and the lady said it is a sign of athlete's foot. The cracks on my heels cause me to limp alot, so I am very desperate to fix this. I am trying Lotrimin spray right now. I guess we will see if it works.

Thumbs up Re: Painful Cracked Heels

My mother in law went to her podiatrist for the same thing, he told her to put vaseline on her heels at night and wear a socks to bed. Big difference!
