If you have tried everything else and yet not able to cure cracked heels, you need to give the wax treatment for cracked heels. You need paraffin wax or wax melted from a regular candle For this, make pieces of a candle after removing its wick (thread). Now take some mustard oil. Heat the wax and the mustard oil to make a paste, apply this wax-mustard oil paste on your heel cracks. If you have deep cracks, fill this wax paste into those fissures. Then wear a pair of socks. It will be more effective if you do this treatment before going to bed. Do it for about a week. Save the wax-mustard oil paste in a jar for Next time.
