    Hi Jane,
    The answer to your question is really "how long is a piece of string?" The foot can become infected with any one of numerous pathogens if conditions are right.

    How about approaching it the other way around and look at the various aseptic/antiseptic/sterile techniques and methods of cross-infection control and the reasons why?

    That might give you are more comprehensive answer.

    regards
