ABSTRACT

Padadari is a disease described in Ayurveda under kshudraroga. It can be correlated to cracked feet. Cracked feet are a common cosmetic problem and a nuisance to most people. But when the fissures or cracks are deep, they are painful to stand on and the skin can bleed and in severe cases this can become infected. Common cause for crack foot include fashionable high healed and improper fitting shoe, excessive walking involving athletics, psoriasis, diabetes and reduced humidity and dries out the skin.
