Olive oil contains a substance called carvacrol, which is the active antifungal property of some oils, including olive oil.The is the same substance which is in coconut oil (in addition to Caprylic acid) which lends to its antifungal activity, and this is the reason for the reaction that you experienced. However, olive oil is not as powerful an antifungal as coconut oil is, probably due to the Caprylic acid.
