Dr. Z can you answer this?

I had injections in both heels 3 times over a 2 year period. The spot where I got them is discolored and dry. If I walk a long time, i even get a breakage in the superficial layer of my heel pad. i know this is tissue degeration, but will it ever regenerate?

If it is from the local steriod injections it probaby won't get better. Wearing a heel cup may reduce this problem
