Hi

I would use super glue. Yes super glue. It will seal the fissure and remove the pain. Must make the cracks aren't infected. After that I would use urea 40% apply at nite. Dead Sea Cream is excellent

Tina, are you wearing sandals a lot? This can cause the skin on the heels to thicken and toughen and crack. If you can bear to switch to a closed shoe in the hot weather, you may find it improves or at least doesn't worsen.

Get at the cause - that's my motto.
