Why are my heels cracked?

My heels are extremely cracked, sometimes to the point that they bleed, despite the fact that I treat them with heavy moisturizers.

Why is this taking place? Cracks in the heels, sometimes called heel fissures, appear when the skin on the underside of the heel

gets dry and hard. They can occasionally be accompanied by thick calluses on the heels. If using moisturizers or petroleum jelly to

soften the skin isn't working, there could be a deeper issue. This is especially true in the dry winter months. Medical disorders

include Sjögren's syndrome, fungal infections, obesity, psoriasis, eczema, and hypothyroidism. Environmental and lifestyle influences

include things like taking lengthy, hot showers, going barefoot or wearing sandals with open toes, and standing for extended periods of time.
