Nothing irritates more than cracked heels. The rainy season, spending time in the field even in your gumboots will make one susceptible to cracked heels. But either way being a farmer would not mean you can’t slay in your sandals/ slopes just because of cracks, hell no! Besides, overtime dry cracked heels may develop deeper fissures which may increase risk of infection, as such they shouldn’t be ignored. For this reason vaMudhumeni:GHGN always has a plan, never out of ideas right?
