Softening Cracked Heels
through Herbal Ayurveda Remedies
|by Dr. Savitha Suri|
Cracked heels are one of the most common beauty problems caused by drying of skin. The desire to wear attractive foot wear will remain just that with cracked heels. Cracked heels are also referred to as heel fissures. When these fissures are deep they may bleed and become painful. Some times they may also get infected.
Ayurveda classifies cracked heels under “kshudra rogas” (common diseases without much complications) and explains the causes and remedies for cracked heels.
Cracks or fissures usually appear on outer edges of heels when the skin on these parts is dry and thick.
