    I get the same thing and it's awful- especially in summer, I get so paranoid about them in thongs etc.. but since finding this really great little pumice stone I haven't had to worry. You get it from the Chemist, (a doctor recommended it) in a little box, I think the actual brand name is 'Hores'. It's a little black block that you use to scrub with soap and water- it's different to any other pumice stone I've ever come across, this one really works and can fix even the absolute worst deeply cracked heels. I swear by it!
    So I use this in the shower a couple times a week and every day after showering I apply a good sorbolene cream as well as some heel balm (like Neat Feat) and pop on socks. I find they get really bad if I walk around without socks on, so it's easy to maintain in winter.
    Also, I sometimes buy a tube of cheap homebrand lanolin cream (about $2) and it works just as well as the expensive balms.

    I just replied to a thread about cracked hands recommending this product and now I will for you! It is palmers cocoa butter formula foot magic. You put it on every night- extra results if you wear socks to. It is great stuff!!

    I use a corn plane too but it goes rusty. How do you use/store yours? Do you throw out the blade after each use?

    I use one side of the razor for each use, so I get two pedicures from one blade. Each time I use it I take out the blade, pat everything dry, then either turn the blade so the unused bit is ready for next time or throw it out.

    OP, despite doing thorough pedicures every week, my heels will still bleed if I wear Havaiana-style thongs too often. If I wear Birkenstocks or thongs with a leather sole my heels still get the dead skin build-up but they never crack and bleed. Maybe try some different shoes as well as a pedicure?
