systemic fungal?

I Have battles with fungal infections since adolescence. Fungal nail. Yenia, bouts of ring worm and a athlete's foot type recuring on my rectm. Two years ago I was treated for a lesion on my rising colon. I now have develpoed a fungal nail infection on my hand. I also have recurring sinucitis on one side and recurring lung infections (same side) Could this be systemic? Thank you

Firstly, what type of lesion was on your rising colon? Do they know what type of infection is on your lung? Did they do a culture? Have you had a high fever with the lung infections. Have they taken any blood cultures from you? After answering that I will answer your questions as best as I can.
