water filled fogs

so my driverside front fog light keeps on building up condensation, enought to wear its puddled in the bottom and has started to strip off the chrome finish. ive taken it apart and let it dry out for a day and re-installed it and it still all comes back in a matter of 2 weeks.

also my headlights are beyond fogged up, anyone know of a good deal to where i can find replacement headlights also? maybe ones with a black background to match my truck.
HEADLIGHT

pictures for reference,

Did you use silicone when putting the lens back on the fogs?

Make sure you get the correct bulb. I used to buy the wrong ones all the time and it would always get water in it. I've been through 8 bulbs in less than 2 months. for some reason it wants to let water in.
