Back on August 16th,
I wrote an article on heel fissures called “Fissures – Cracks in the Skin.” I
received a comment from a reader, which is worth sharing.

your most recent e-newsletter article about heel fissures. The most effective
way my husband Sid and I have dealt with these when they occur is by
super-glueing them together. They heal quickly and the pain is gone
immediately. The hardest thing is reaching back to glue them (it's easier to
have someone else do it for you). And of course you have to be careful not to
glue your fingers to the feet and to let the glue dry completely before
stepping down or putting socks on.”
So if you are bothered by
these cracks in the skin, make a note to buy a tube of Krazy Glue. Give it a
try and let me know.
