Or perhaps a yeast type resistant to "azole" drugs. You list tight foreskin (phimosis) as a medical condition, and you might need surgery e.g. circumcision to get over this.

The combination can cause higher levels of Migranal (dihydroergotamine) in the blood and a few cases of toxicity have been reported. Luckily, no problems have been reported with the Clotrimazole lozenges though a theoretical risk exists. Symptoms of toxicity include numbness, tingling, abdominal pain, chest pain, muscle cramps and rapid pulse. If you are feeling any of these call your doctor or go to the emergency room.
