There are several age-related factors that make older adults more susceptible to foot damage. The fatty cushioning under the heels and balls of the feet thins, and the skin on the feet loses its elasticity and strength. Furthermore, toenails become more brittle, thick and hard. This makes them more difficult to trim, and therefore, increases the risk of ingrown toenails, fungal breakouts and infection.
