Yeah mushrooms -

"Do You Want Good Health?
Avoid mushrooms! The most dangerous is that known by the name: Black Forest Mushroom. While it is very pleasant to the taste it produces a swelling of the belly and shortly afterwards causes terrible pains in the region of the lower abdomen. Don't trust mushrooms!"

Looks infected to me. Lotrimin should clear that right up.

You can take mushrooms into pharmacies in France to get them checked . . .

That's convenient. Just be careful of the ones you can buy in Amsterdam. Selling mushrooms is legal there if that's what you're into.
