I'm not aware of any rule that prohibits its use for therapeutic reasons. I'm sure Fat Buddha can clarify.

no rule against using it and many do - often quite visibly. I've used tape on a plantar fasciitis injury to help in a race in the past.

the only rule regarding a medical issue, is if someone needs an exception to wear what would normally be prohibited - eg. calf guards in a pool swim; booties in an open water swim. these can be allowed on supplying a medical certificate to state why they should be worn (injury and severe Reynaud's syndrome are the most common), but other than that no rules covering things like tape.
