Dry cracked heels, or heel fissures, are closely related to dry skin (anhidrosis). They occur when dry, hard skin breaks open, causing painful cracks that may even bleed. Cracks appear at areas of high pressure, most commonly the heel.
If left untreated, the fissures may run deeper into the skin or even become infected. This is especially dangerous for diabetics and those with compromised immune systems.
