Dear sir there is no relation ship between coffee and diabetes but you should take your coffee with out sugar and with skimmed milk only.there is a very good relation ship between your fungus infection and diabetes.usually fungal infection will be more in uncontrolled diabetes.so kindly get your sugars checked.keeping area dry will prevent the growth of fungus. advised to meet your Diabetologist.....Regarts
