Seborrhea: There are many causes, but the most common is seborrhea (or seborrheic dermatitis), especially if your scalp is also dry and/or itchy. A good anti-seborrheic shampoo like selsun blue, plus otc Hydrocortisone cream, should control it. If not, something else is going on and you should see a dermatologist for an in-person exam.

Lack of moisture : Hydration and lack of moisture mostly causes dryness of your skin on your heels. If there peeling as well you may have a fungal infection. If you do not have the latter, usually moisturizing your skin works. I recommend you see a podiatrist. There is many ways to reduce dryness on heels.
