Cracked heels are a sign of foot neglect, not just excessive exposure or lack of moisture
Medically, cracked heels are described as fissures (cracks on the heels). Heel fissures are always linearly cracked wounds and typically affect the extent of the superficial skin layer (epidermis). Sometimes this can go deep into the dermis and become painful. Dry skin surrounding the heels causes cracking and fissures on the heels. Cracked heels can also occur due to a deficiency of zinc and omega-3 fatty acids.
Skin fissures can appear anywhere on the body, but the most common area where they occur is on the heels and toes of the feet.
Dry skin on the heels is a common problem and can manifest on both heels or just one. However, cracked heels mostly occur on both feet.
