Suzi, an old remedy is to cover the heels with a thick layer of Zambuk® ointment every night and to cover the area with gauze and crepe. Seeing a beautician for a foot treatment may also help and if that doesn’t work she can ask her doctor to prescribe her an ointment that contains a moisturiser and some urea. Good luck.
