You may try following treatment;

1) In day time; apply over the counter anti-yeast cream like Monistat.

2) At night time apply Hydrocrotisone 0,5% cream on the heels.

These should be able to take care of the cracked heel and discoloration.

Also do following;

1) Avoid prolonged standing for long stretch.

2) Whenever you sit; stretch your legs on a stool or a chair in the front. Do not keep your feet hanging for long time.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
