Foot Care

Cracked Heels
Rough, dry, toughened and/or cracked skin on the feet and heels.

Foot Odour
The sweat glands in our feet release moisture, the continual wearing of shoes inhibits evaporation of this moisture creating the ideal environment for bacteria to breed. The growth of bacteria then causes foot odour.

Advice for Patient

Cracked Heels
Avoid wearing open toe shoes, ill fitting shoes, or going bare foot as these all contribute to the drying out of feet and heels. Ensure feet and heels remain hydrated as this helps to soften the skin.

Foot Odour
Allow your feet to breathe occasionally by wearing airy, open toe shoes or sandals. Avoid overheating your feet. Rubber sole shoes and synthetic socks will assist with overheating.

Products to Help

QV Feet Heel Balm utilises a unique and effective lactate system to rehydrate and revive rough dry and cracked heels. The lactate system synergises the effects of sodium lactate and lactic acid. Sodium lactate is a naturally occurring substance within the human skin that has tremendous hygroscopic abilities. Lactic acid is a member of the alpha hydroxy family of acids (AHA’s) and has superior exfoliation and plasticization abilities.

QV Feet Heel Balm is urea free so it won’t sting cracked feet. This innovative formulation eliminates the need for pumicing or buffing.

QV Feet Foot Sure utilises revolutionary Biosorb™ Crystals to attack the problem of foot odour at the source – by inhibiting the spread of odour causing bacteria. The Biosorb™ Crystals are sweat activated - when they come into contact with moisture they immediately alter the surface chemistry of the skin, inhibiting the growth of bacteria – effectively removing the cause of foot odour.

    I used Mycoderm for my feet for years and I was advised it had been taken off the market. I then found QV Feet Foot Sure and found it a suitable alternative on my feet to stop skin cracking under my toes. Now I cannot find this product on chemist shelves in Canberr including the Chemist Warehouse. Could you please advise me where I can purchase this product please?

      Hi Cyeolna,
      If you have dry and cracked feet, try QV Heel Balm. It contains lactic acid to help break down hard, dead skin, revealing smoother and softer skin underneath.
      Kind Regards,
      The Ego Team.
