One of the Seven Essential Elements Malassezia needs
for the completion of its Cycle, is Humidity!
Warmth could be an eighth but since it can survive and operate
within a wide range of temperatures, almost as wide
– if not equal to that of the human body’s survival –
i do not consider as one of the essential elements.
Humidity, in any form is favourable to its surviving and thriving
almost as much as All Oils are.
Humidity does Not necessarily mean only as in Water
Nor a great Quantity such as in Showers, Bath tabs, Pools etc.
It can be humidity of varying Viscosity as in Body fluids,
such as in Body Perspiration, or around the edge of the mouth –
due to saliva,in the Eyes, Nostrils or other areas such
as the Vagina and Penis or Internally in the Colon area, etc.
Recently, due to adverse health circumstances preventing me
from applying diligently my daily routine maintenance,
i had an opportunity to Observe Malassezia growing
in a plastic container under an Urn i have installed in my Bathroom
to provide hot water instantly 24/7 with minimal waste
of water or electricity.
The plastic container is to catch any clean running water
when i dab it on cotton wads and rinsing my hands, etc.
I empty and rinse it regularly throughout the day
never allowing it to fill up or stand for long.
Being a bit slack and inhibited by pain i inadvertently
reduced the frequency of emptying it.
The result was startling!
Container Empty and Clean
Below within a Couple of days, a very distinct Orange Layer
started to form and continued to grow despite frequent rinses
and emptying the container.
Orange Layer quite visible at the base of the Container
and of the same rusty quality often staining some of my underwear
such as Singlets, T Shirts, Pyjamas and Panties,
i.e anything that comes in direct contact with my skin
especially during the night after perspiration.
