Cracked Heels

Symptoms of Cracked Heels

Visual symptoms usually are obvious – cracks or fissures in the skin in the heel area that may cause discomfort or pain and bleeding.  Bacteria may enter through the breaks in the skin, resulting in infection. Signs of infection include redness/red streaks, swelling and warmth to the touch. In addition, the area may be painful to the touch, or when more pressure is applied.
