Basically, cracks in the heels are the result of a fungal disease or when the skin dries out due to the large formation of the stratum corneum. When the first signs of cracks appear, it is better to consult a dermatologist to identify the cause of the ailment.
Only after the diagnosis is made, you can quickly and correctly get rid of cracked heels.
If the cause of the cracks is an overgrown stratum corneum, you need to steam your legs with baths once a week and carefully treat problem areas with pumice. Homemade ointment is considered an excellent remedy. Scroll the aloe leaves in a meat grinder and mix the resulting porridge with any fatty baby cream. Apply a bandage of ointment to the cracks daily for 3-5 hours.
In summer, small leaves of calendula mixed with plantain and yarrow will help get rid of cracked heels. Remember to rinse each herbal ingredient thoroughly to avoid contamination.
There are several recipes for cracked heels. For example, a bath of warm sunflower oil. After taking it, it is recommended to put on woolen socks on your feet. Also, a soda bath is not bad.
Try applying a flaxseed and potato waste mask to your heels once a week. Mix the ingredients in equal proportions, heat and keep the legs in the resulting gruel. The procedure should last no more than 20 minutes.
In order to avoid the appearance of cracks, get rid of the fungus or simply eliminate the smell, use a proven folk remedy. Wipe your feet with 10% table vinegar every morning and every evening, then wear cotton socks when your feet dry naturally.
