Does fungal infection in body show effect in eye something like itching, burning frequently?

Probably not: Systemic fungal infections can affect the eyes, but not usually in the way you describe. The fungus can get into the eye through the bloodstream and cause a serious condition called endophthalmitis. You can get a fungal infection of the cornea, but it would be unlikely to come from a systemic infection. What you describe sounds more like dry eye/allergy. I would see an ophthalmologist to be sure. ...Read more

Can inner ear fungal infections be harmful to your body? My inner ears have been itchy for a long time now and I don't know what's causing it

External ear: I am sure you mean a possible fungal infection of the EXTERNAL EAR CANAL, not the inner ear. You need a culture of the drainage of the ear canal skin to document the presence of fungus. The most common cause of dry ears causing itchiness is the over use of Q-tips to clean your ears of wax. Wax in the ear canal is important and healthy and will migrate out on its own. ...Read more

Have been treating entire body for fungal infection with coconut oil rash gone skin dry and flaky now still itches really bad possible I'd reaction? Symmetrical rash started on torso spread to arms and legs has reached ankles still extremely itchy on breas

Sounds fungal: Would need more background information as there are several potential causes for rash such as this. However, ruling out fungal infection is at top of list. Coconut oil has good antimicrobial properties and may have helped calm an inflammatory reaction to the infection, but does not seem to have completed the task. Would see a physician to confirm and take antifungal medication. ...Read more

If: If it is in fact coming from your urine then you may be dealing with a urinary tract infection (uti). Often times they present with a foul urine odor. In addition with uti's you could experience urinary frequency, burning with urination, and lower abdominal pain.
On the other hand if you are a female the smell could be from vaginal discharge. Certain vaginal bacterial infections have a foul odor. Regardless you should be evaluated by your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.

Can a systemic fungal infection give you a musky skin rash, sores with cut lines, Formication. Itchy ears w/white residue. Cloudy urine. Chills& Fatigue?

Urban myth: There are some systemic fungal infections, such as histoplasmosis, coccidioidomycosis (valley fever), and acute bloodstream infections that usually are rapidly fatal if not treated. However, the notion of chronic candidiasis or other chronic "systemic" yeast (fungal) infections is an urban myth. The symptoms you mention are not due to yeast or fungus of any kind. ...Read more

Probably not warts: Google "genital warts" and "fordyce spots" to see typical photos of both conditions. In general, FS are in much larger number and all skin bumps similar in appearance and pretty much the same size and quite small. Warts are less numerous and more variable in size and appearance. Warts take at least 6-8 weeks to show up, often 6-12 months after exposure. They cannot appear in only 3 weeks. ...Read more
