Fungi gave rise to a wide range of less dramatic conditions that are virtually untreatable either because of absence of appropriate drugs or antifungal agents cannot be delivered on site in the requisite concentration. One of such cases is Otomycosis, a form of external otitis caused by fungi growing on shed skin in the ear canal. The condition is particularly common in the regions of the world with a warm climate and varying humidity.
