Q923 How to perform wudhu with a fungal infection or wound etc?

As I’ve got fungus on 3 of my left toes, I’m doing the treatment for it, I apply the fluid in the morning and then wear my kufs but now as it’s too hot I can’t wear them.

So can I wash my feet fully in the morning wudu and then any further wudus for the rest of the day I leave the toes?


If the nail is broken and you apply medicine or mastic on it, or you put on mararah or a maraham (Marham is some type of cream which is applied to a wound, mararah seems to be a bitter fluid which has antiseptic properties acquired. lisanul arab ) if it is difficult to remove (whatever he has applied from the above) then you should wipe over it, if wiping is harmful then you should leave it.
