Heel fissures is the term for cracking of the skin of the heels. This can be a painful condition that can cause bleeding. Open-backed sandals or shoes that allow more slippage around the heel while walking are often culprits that cause heel fissures. Skin conditions, such as eczema andpsoriasis, can also lead to heel fissures. The skin thickens as a result of the friction. Wearing proper shoes and the use of deep skin moisturizers and lotions can reduce the dryness associated with the condition and allow the foot to heal.

TESTIMONIAL

I had a sprained ankle and had lots of warts on my feet due to all the sports I play. The doctors were able to use their new laser technology to eliminate all of my warts quickly and efficiently. They also were able to heal my ankle in less than 4 weeks, with a walking cast. The office was clean and all of the staff were helpful and very professional.
