Home treatment for cracked feet (from heel to toe)

  • Keep feet clean and dirt free.
  • Rub pumice stone on the cracked part of the feet while taking a bath, to remove dead skin.
  • Before going to bed wash and dry the feet. Apply olive oil or a mixture of Vaseline and lemon juice on the cracked portion of the feet.
  • Do not walk barefooted at your home. Use slippers conveniently.
  • Consume a diet rich in calcium, iron, zinc and omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins.

    Milk, cheese, yogurt, goat’s milk, fortified soy milk, cereals and broccoli are excellent sources of calcium.
    Cereals, millets, pulses and green leafy vegetables contain iron.
    Meat, chicken and fish are good sources of iron.
    Oysters, chicken, crab, kidney beans, yogurt, brown rice and spaghetti are Zinc rich foods.

    Tuna, salmon, flax and walnuts are good sources of Omega-3.
    Vegetable oils, green vegetables, cereals, wheat germ, whole-grain products and nuts are Vitamin Enriched foods.
