Thanks for posting your query.
Fungal infections are often recurrent and need a vigorous treatment. If both of your feet are affected by fungal infection and there are multiple other infections like ear infection, bladder infection, etc then a lowered body immunity or diabetes could be the reason behind all your symptoms.
You need a comprehensive examination and investigations to find out any systemic abnormality. Both oral antifungals and antibacterial agents are needed for controlling the infections effectively after determining the causative organism.
I encourage you to consult a dermatologist for investigations and adequate control of fungal infections of your feet.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
