Heel Fissures


CONDITIONS

Heel Fissures

Heel fissures occur due to dryness and cracking of the skin on the heel of the foot. This can result in pain, discomfort and sometimes bleeding if the cracks are very deep and irritated. People who frequently wear open-back shoes with little support are more susceptible to fissures due to the friction caused by the slippage and movement of their heels in these shoes. Certain skin or bacterial conditions like athlete’s foot, eczema and psoriasis can also cause heel fissures if they develop on the foot. Fissures can usually be healed conservatively under the guidance of a foot specialist. Common treatments include moisturizing the area, removing rough skin via medicine that dissolves dead tissue, and oral antibiotics if the area becomes inflamed or infected.
