Cracked heels are a common skin problem, which can be purely cosmetic issue but it can be very painful as well. Without a doubt, they are not a pretty sight, but what is even worst they can cause severe pain when walking.
The most common symptoms are dry skin and thick callus on the heels that has yellow or dark brown color. Besides dry, thickened skin, this skin condition can cause redness, itching, inflammation and peeling of the skin. It is very important to solve the problem as soon as it occurs in order to prevent deeper cracks ,bleeding and pain.
Cracked heels appear due to improper foot care, unhealthy diet, aging, dry air, lack of moisture, prolonged standing on hard floors and last, but not the least, wearing uncomfortable shoes. In addition, this problem can be caused by other medical conditions such as diabetes, eczema, psoriasis and thyroid problems.
Today’s article is about a simple home remedy that successfully eliminates the problem with cracked heels, calluses and corns, and the results will be visible in less than two weeks.
Crush 10 aspirins into powder and mix the powder with 250 ml of 70% rubbing alcohol. Then pour the solution in a small glass bottle and leave it 1-2 days.
