“This might seem surprising, but one of the biggest complaints with older patients is dry skin on the feet,” says podiatrist Kenneth Kilgore, DPM of Lititz Podiatry. Dry skin may actually be a variation of athletes foot, Kilgore says. It may not itch or burn, but it causes redness, irritation, crease lines, and flakiness, which allow bacteria to take hold. That can cause toenail fungus and foot infections that can be difficult to treat.

Ironically, the dryness comes from moisture. When your feet sweat or get damp in your shoes, they end up getting dry and cracked. Kilgore recommends soaking your feet in tepid water, followed by a thorough drying of the feet and application of a soothing ointment that will keep your feet moisturized and help fight bacteria.
