Cracked Heel (seriously)

Good dya

I have a crack (split) in my one heel, that is so painfull I can hardly step on my foot. It is always just the one foot. I scrub my feet every night and put heel cream and everything. What can I do?

Hi G

The best advice I can give would be to constantly use a strong moisturiser to prevent the skin from cracking further, and to keep it clean (i.e. by using an antibacterial soap or cream) to prevent infection.

All the best!
