Heel Fissure Treatment Process

 

TREATMENT PROCESS

This is my current treatment process for treating cracked heels. 

  • 1st Visit - Evaluate skin and determine cause of the cracked heel. Evaluate need for orthotics to reduce pressure from heel region. Remove any thick skin and callusing on the heel region.
  • Treatment Options - Most of the time treatment is a combination of shoe changes, urea cream and moisturizing socks. Many times I will trim the callus and recommend you use a pumice stone. Sometimes you may need to use super glue to hold the skin together and sometimes orthotics or inserts can be used to reduce friction on the skin.  

COMPLICATIONS

If you notice any signs of infection or wound developing contact the office.
