Heel Problems - Heel Fissures
Heel fissures, or cracking of the skin of the heels, is an often painful condition that can cause bleeding. Open-backed sandals or shoes, which allow more slippage around the heel while walking, are often the culprits. The skin thickens as a result of the friction. Skin lotions can help with reducing the dryness associated with the condition.

The ankle bone (talus) and the ends of the two lower leg bones (tibia and fibula) form the ankle joint, which is stabilized and supported by three groups of ligaments. Muscles and tendons move the foot and ankle.
