Because there are fewer oil glands on your feet, they are much more likely to become dry. As you get older, natural exfoliation and production of new skin cells occur at a slower rate, which can make it more difficult for your dry skin to heal.

What are the symptoms of foot related sports injuries?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Pain is the most common and usually most obvious symptom of a foot related sports injury. Sports injury pain can last long after you stop playing, but it will likely be worse during a sport or exercise. You might also find swelling or bruising to the injured area. In some cases, you might experience an inability to put weight on your foot, or your foot might not be able to move as it normally does. A part of your foot that looks strange, such as a toe that is bent oddly, is a likely sign of a break or dislocation.
How can I avoid fungal foot infection?
To avoid foot fungus, keep your toes dry and try to expose them to the sun. Many people who think they have fungus actually just have an infection around the nail. Soak your foot in vinegar or tea tree oil to cure those infections.
