From this study (2 months ago):
History of general muscular and joint aches for several years. Ongoing itch in groin with no rash, with periodic small recurrent open sore in the same location in the groin, oozing a white, smelly substance if not treated with fungicide, antibiotic or alcohol. Fluid filled swelling in left elbow, aspirated and tested positive for crystals consistent with pseudogout. Paecilomyces lilacinus was detected in lab results for pseudogout. Betadyne was used. When aspirant was taken, but physician attributes this to airborn fungi. Patient suspects groin symptoms and other issues may be caused by the drugs or fungus or combination.
