The sign of cracked heels is having dry, thickened skin known as callouses, around the rim of your heel. As you walk, the fat pad under your heel expands. This causes your callouses to crack.
Other factors that can also cause cracked heels are standing for long hours; walking around barefoot or with open-back sandals; taking long, hot showers; using harsh soaps that can strip your skin of natural oils; shoes that don’t fit properly or support your heels; dry skin due to the climate such as cold temperatures or low humidity.
If you don’t moisturize your feet regularly, they may dry out even faster.
it may take several days or weeks for the cracks to heal. During and after this time, wear shoes that fit properly and practice proper foot care to help prevent new heel cracks.
