Re: Severe heel fissures

If the cause is a fubgus, then it must be treated. If the cause is wearing sandals or going barefoot all the time, then that must be addressed.

Generally, the fissures are debrided, sanded and a lotion is applied under occlusion. This must be done for some time before results are achieved. This will probably require periodic applications.

He really should see a podiatrist.

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
