Toenail fungus: There are many reported homeopathic remedies for toenail fungus. I cannot say that one is better than the other or if any are proven to work at all. Some say tea tree oil, oregano, vicks, apple cider vinegar, listerine...The list goes on. Most common treatments currently are laser and oral antifungals provided by a podiatrist.

Get ankles evaluated: Sharp pains in the ankles with activity can be caused by numerous issues. This can be either a bone and joint issue or soft tissue, such as a tendon problem. My first suggestion would be to have your feet/ankles examined by a foot and ankle specialist, like a podiatrist to help find the reason for your pain.

Stress fracture: Stress fractures typically are painful through out activity, including simple walking or standing. There is also swelling overlying the area where the suspected stress fracture may be. This is something i would follow up with a foot/ankle doctor to have an x-ray taken.
