Fungi are organisms that can grow in or on the body, causing infections of internal organs or of the skin, nails, and hair. These fungi are common in the environment and can affect anyone causing a wide range of illnesses, from minor skin conditions to life-threatening diseases. Learning about them can help you and your doctor recognize the symptoms of a fungal disease early and may help prevent serious complications.
Fungal infections are often described as opportunistic or primary. They can affect many areas of the body (systemic) or only one area (localized).
- Opportunistic fungal infections take advantage of a weakened immune system. Thus, they usually occur in people with a weakened immune system, such as those with AIDS. Opportunistic fungal infections can be very aggressive, spreading quickly to other organs and often leading to death.
- Primary fungal infections occur in people with the normal immune system and generally do not spread to organs deep in the body. They are more common in certain geographic areas. Because many primary fungal infections develop slowly, months or years may pass before people seek medical attention.
- Localised fungal infections typically involve the skin and nails, vagina, mouth, or sinuses.
Fungal infections of the skin
For those who like to spend time outdoors, at the gym, or other places that may cause the skin to become sweaty and dirty, it is important to understand the risk of contracting a fungal infection of the skin. Fungi usually make their homes in moist areas of the body where skin surfaces meet: between the toes, in the genital area, and under the breasts. Fungal infections of the skin are often diagnosed on the basis of their appearance and their location on the body.
Common fungal skin infections are caused by yeasts (such as Candida or Malassezia furfur) or dermatophytes, such as Epidermophyton, Microsporum, and Trichophyton. Many such fungi live only in the topmost layer of the epidermis (stratum corneum) and do not penetrate deeper. Obese people are more likely to get these infections because they have excessive skin folds, especially if the skin within a skin fold becomes irritated and broken down (intertrigo). People with diabetes tend to be more susceptible to fungal infections as well.
Strangely, fungal infections on one part of the body can cause rashes on other parts of the body that are not infected. For example, a fungal infection on the foot may cause an itchy, bumpy rash on the fingers. These eruptions (Dermatophytids, or identity or id reactions) are allergic reactions to the fungus. They do not result from touching the infected area.
Antifungal drugs may also be taken by mouth. Keeping the skin dry and clean is helpful. Other skin infections, however, do not respond to such treatment. They require a doctor's attention and systemic treatment with prescription antifungal medications.

Hypersensitivity: What to Do About Too Much Penis Sensation?
When it comes to penis sensation, most men would be quite happy to have more of it. That's why there are so many products on the market that claim to help build a man's penis sensitivity or provide new ways for him to get that "first time feeling" kind of rush. Many men will even change their penis care regimen to include far-fetched ideas that might increase sensation, even the slightest bit.
However, there are some men on the other side of the spectrum that deal with far too much sensation. Hypersensitivity can occur for a variety of reasons, and it can lead to all sorts of unhappy outcomes, including premature ejaculation, deflating erections and more. Here's what men need to know when they are dealing with too much penis sensation.
Too much of a good thing?
Though at first blush it might seem like hypersensitivity would be a good thing, for those who deal with it on a regular basis, it can truly be a hindrance to their enjoyment. But what causes hypersensitivity?
1) Infections. Men who have suffered from a variety of infections might find that their nerve endings are much more sensitive in the aftermath. This might include something as simple as a yeast infection, a urinary tract infection, or more serious infections, such as a tough case of balanitis.
2) Problems with the foreskin. A man who has trouble retracting his foreskin might face serious hypersensitivity, thanks to the fact that the foreskin is usually covering the glans. When it is retracted, the very soft skin at the tip of the penis can be so sensitive that even the slightest touch can hurt - and for some, it might be pleasurable, but far too intense to allow them to hold back their ejaculation during sexual activity.
3) Healing from trauma. Trauma on or around the penis can be a tricky thing, as sometimes it leads to a lack of penis sensation - but it can just as easily lead to sending those nerve endings into overdrive, making the equipment far more sensitive than it was before. This sensitivity might go away as the healing continues, but for some, the penis sensation ramps up enough that they can no longer enjoy the same sexual things they enjoyed before the trauma occurred.
4) Prostate issues. Sometimes an enlarged or irritated prostate can make the penis much more sensitive to touch. This penis sensation might come and go, depending upon a man's prostate health. For some, the sensation increase becomes permanent.
Those who suffer from increased penis sensation might deal with problems that go far beyond premature ejaculation. For some, a simple touch of a partner is too much, and the grip they use for masturbation can become unbearable. For others, the hypersensitivity is so bad that even the touch of soft underwear - or, amazingly, the slight breeze of air - can be enough to lead to pain. In that case, speaking with a doctor is essential, as there might be medications or crèmes that could limit the sensitivity of the penis enough to allow a man to have a normal life.
It's never a good idea to attempt to reduce penis sensation without a doctor's help; this is because it's entirely possible a man could go too far with home remedies and wind up creating significant nerve damage that doesn't allow him to feel even "typical" sensation anymore.
A man dealing with hypersensitivity must still engage in a good penis care regimen to keep the skin as healthy as possible. This can be achieved through the use of a high-quality penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). He should choose a crème that contains vitamin E and Shea butter, both of which are soothing and gentle to the skin and can help keep it supple and healthy.
