I have a severe stomach pain for the last couple of weeks around the navel area, usually it pains whenever I have a meal or when I wake up in the morning. This pain became intolerable yesterday night, I had to defecate for almost 5-6 times and it feels a little better after that, but the pain is back after a while. Please help!
There is a pigeon in my balcony who is just standing there and it has weird outgrowth or blister or maybe some insect bite all over his beak and near his eyes. It looks ill. What should I do? Should I go near it or not? And how can I help it?

Yeast infections are often thought of as a women's issue, but they are also common among men and can definitely be a penis health concern. In men, this infection is commonly called thrush or candidiasis, and it can make for a very, very itchy penis. The term candidiasis comes from candida, which is the fungus that causes this yeast infection. But there are several forms of candida, and in recent years there has emerged a form called a super fungus - and not because it stands for truth, justice and the American way.
The medical name for this particular super fungus is candida auris (sometimes called c. auris). The form of candida most commonly causing an itchy penis is candida albicans, and it's a pain all by itself.
When a guy has "regular" thrush, the yeast has spread across a portion of the penis. Usually this is the glans or, if a man is intact, the foreskin, especially underneath the foreskin. A rash typically forms, which is not attractive; but the bigger problem is that thrush itches like crazy. (Sometimes the fungus can also appear in the mouth, where it is even more annoying.)
Although thrush is not considered a sexually-transmitted infection, it can be passed through sex. Often a guy will pick it up from an infected partner (or vice versa) and the two may pass it back and forth for some time. Wearing a condom can help cut down on the risk of transmission.
While a pest, regular candida can usually be treated fairly easily with oral or local antifungal medications.
But the super fungus version, candida auris, is not as easy to dismiss as regular thrush. An itchy penis is the least of a guy's concerns here - and indeed, the penis is one of the less likely sites for this super fungus to strike. Ear infections and open wounds are more common targets.
Candida auris was first noticed in 2009, and although it is still rare, it is spreading rapidly. In addition to an itch at the infected site, it is possible for the fungus to enter the bloodstream, which can cause serious and even fatal consequences; more than half of those who reach the blood poisoning phase have died.
Beyond itching, fever and chills are common. The fungus is resistant to many forms of antifungal treatment, although the earlier it is caught, the better the response. People with diabetes have an increased chance of contracting it, as do many people in hospital or nursing home settings - especially those with a central venous catheter or who have recently undergone surgery.
Most men with an itchy penis are unlikely to have contracted this super fungus; however, if they also experience fever or chills or have other unusual symptoms, they should check with a doctor to determine if there is anything they should do. Checking with a doctor for regular thrush is not a bad idea, either.
The idea of a super fungus that can turn an itchy penis into a serious condition is scary - but again, it is rare. Instead of fretting, a guy should focus more attention of his overall penis health by daily using a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) Penis skin can be strengthened by a crème that includes a powerful antioxidant like alpha lipoic acid. This can combat excess free radicals and thereby prevent oxidative damage. It also is beneficial if the crème contains vitamin B5, also called pantothenic acid, a vital nutrient that is required for cell metabolism and the maintenance of healthy tissue.
