Cracks on the heel
What are heel cracks and why do they occur?
Cracks or ragade on heels they are not just an aesthetic problem. Improper and unprofessional care leads to more serious complications. The area of excessively horny skin where the crack has formed is very painful and our movement is limited. What’s more, an unprofessionally repaired crack area can even lead to infection, so it’s crucial to leave the repair to a professional.
What can you do yourself and how can I help you?
Excessively horny skin should be removed and the skin nourished. Be aware that not every cream is suitable for the feet, because as we have already written, the skin of this area is different in structure and needs special carefully selected means. At PEDICARE, we offer you only the best foot care products that belong to the very top of the world.
Footwear also plays an important role. Choose one that fits your feet nicely, as shoes that are too tight or too big are often the cause of problems and pain. It is important that the footwear in compartment five is nicely rounded, and especially with summer footwear, there are no edges to walk on, thus speeding up horning.

What do our customers think?
The daughters did an ingrown toenail repair with a staple! Professionally .. Painless .. and of course successful .. Very pleased and happy with the kindness of Mrs. Tine.
That day when I had a pedicure I spent in a trance because I was scared and I knew how much it was going to hurt. I have been speaking for three months now and the results are already visible. I am very happy when I step in I don’t feel any pain.
I have to commend you for doing a really good job. I’ve been to three doctors, and none have done anything but advice to cool down and disinfect. I had severe pain for over a month. Now, barely 24 hours after your procedure, I barely know there’s anything wrong with my finger.

Cracks can be small and superficial, but often they are deep and reach to the deeper layers of the skin, where the veins and nerves are. Such cracks not only hurt, but pose a danger to our health. The crack is an ideal place for infection.
