How can I avoid fungal foot infection?
Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease), answeredTo 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.

What are foot related sports injuries?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Foot related sports injuries happen when the foot is hurt as a result of sports or exercise. If you break your toe while playing basketball, for example, you have a foot related sports injury. Sports injuries are relatively common because your body is more active while playing sports. There are four basic types of foot related sports injuries: those that occur from overuse, trauma, fractures and dislocations, and sprains and strains. Overuse is a frequent cause of foot related sports injuries as athletes can over-train and stress their bodies. Trauma-related injuries are common in contact sports, such as a football tackle. Fractures and dislocations are injuries to the bones and joints while sprains and strains are injuries to the ligaments, muscles, and tendons.
