right foot swollen

long story short:

my right foot has been swollen on and off, mostly on for the past two years.

i told many doctors about, none of them said it was anything to worry about.

this past summer it started bothering me more... always swollen and the skin was always red after a shower, when the other foot wasn't.

my right shoe size is about one size larger than the left too, i find this extremely worrisome.

then it started itching.

i went to the doctor he presribed athletes foot meds, oral and topical.

didn't work.

went to a podiatrist. he said i have a "bad" athletes foot and a secondary bacterial infection.

by this time my second and third toe, plus the top of my feet near those toes are red and swollen, really bloated and uncomfortable.

i'm on my second round of antibiotics, plus the antifungal pills and cream.

the podiatrist says it's getting better but i doun't think so.

he did x-rays. said that at one time i had a bone fracture on top of my foot but it's heeled.

does anyone have any idea what i could do next to get to the bottom of my right foot bloat-?
