Cracked heels occur when dry, thick skin on the heels of the feet crack or split. When the cracked heels only affect the outer layer of the skin, you may not notice any pain, though the cracks may be uncomfortable and catch on your socks. Other times, it isn’t just the dry skin that cracks, but also the healthy skin beneath. This is painful, causes bleeding, and makes you vulnerable to infection if the cracks aren’t cared for.
