These photographs show the feet of a 59-year-old male with diabetes, presenting with dry skin and callus on his heels.
After checking his feet, the patient was placed on a two-week regimen of daily application of Flexitol 25% Urea Heel Balm. The patient was able to self-care – reach and check his own feet, and apply the emollient himself.
On day 14, the patient returned and reported he had used Flexitol 25% urea Heel Balm daily. As can be seen, he presented with significant improvement. The patient was pleased with the results.
The patient was advised to maintain his improvement by using Flexitol 10% urea cream. The patient understood that daily maintenance was key in preventing relapse to callused heels. The visible results achieved left the patient very motivated to continue with this routine.
