What are Callus and Cracked Heel?

We use our feet from the moment we get up until we go to bed. Our feet are in constant use. Standing, walking, exercising, shopping etc. The average person is on their feet about 6 hours per day, people with jobs that require standing, stand up to 10 hours. Foot care often gets forgotten or neglected, yet takes only few minutes of a daily routine. That's why we came up with a whole line of foot care products to treat and prevent callus and cracked heel or to simply moisturize and spoil your feet - have baby soft feet all year round. Footner - your foot care specialist.
Cracked Heal
A callus is an especially toughened area of skin, which has become relatively thick and hard in response to repeated friction, pressure, or other irritation. Common on toes and heels it can also form under the ball of the foot. Calluses are generally thickened discoloured areas of the skin that can result in pain, discomfort, and disfigurement. Calluses are more common in women than men.
Healthy Heel
Cracked heels are generally referred to as thickening of the skin's hornified layer and the formation of fissures on the heel and soles. The thickening of the skin during callus formation can cause excessive dryness and hardening. The collection of these factors can cause the skin to become brittle and crack open. Cracked heels are not only emotionally damaging but also unsightly and sometimes even quite painful.

What causes Callus and Cracked Heel?

Acallus is a thickening of the skin that occurs in response to excessive, repeated shear or friction forces, commonly due to constant rubbing of the skin.
Callus formations occur when abnormal forces are exerted over an area of skin for long periods of time. Although callus mostly found on feet they can occur anywhere on the body where constant friction happens such as when playing stringed musical instruments, lifting weights, dancing etc. Wearing tight shoes, high heels, and certain deformities of the feet, such as crooked toes, may predispose to the development of a callus.
Calluses are formed by the accumulation of dead cells that consist of cross-linked proteins and hydrophobic keratin. This makes a callus quite resistant to mechanical or chemical treatment.
A callus may cause pain. Furthermore, calluses and dry skin can lead up to develop into cracked heels and corns.
Cracked heels are commonly caused by dry skin and callus, which form fissures due to consistent friction and pressure. Cracked heels are a common foot problem, unsightly and bothersome and even painful when the fissures or cracks are deep and may bleed. In severe cases such fissures may get infected and need medical treatment.
Additional causes that increase your risk of developing Callus or Cracked Heel include but are not limited to:
- Tight foot wear (narrow-toed or high-heeled)
- Open back shoes (heels may expand sideways)
-Prolonged standing
-Obesity
-Flat feet or high arched feel
- Abnormality in alignment of metatarsal bones or long metatarsal bone
- Surgical procedures
- Medical conditions (diabetes, thyroid diseases, athlete's foot, exzema etc.)

You may have developed callus or cracked heel if you have the following symptoms:
- Growth of hard and thickened skin on feet (from tight shoes or being barefoot)

- Pain when walking and pain that increases standing and relieves when sitting

How can Callus and Cracked Heel be prevented?

We take our feet for granted and often neglect regular foot care in contrast to facial care. When it is not desirable to form a callus, minimizing rubbing and pressure will prevent callus and cracked heel formation.
You can help prevent callus and cracked heel formation by further observing the following simple tips:
- Keep feet moisturized (for example with Footner Soft Foot Foam)
- Choose good fitted footwear
- Wear socks with shoes at all times
- Wear gloves if working with hands (garden work, lifting weights etc.)
-Do not walk barefoot on hard surfaces, such as asphalt, for a long time
- If overweight, commit to loose weight
