   On Lesions Anywhere – Legs, Feet, Toes.


*Aloe Vera (Fresh Plant Only) – Applied:

    Have tried Commercial Gels  but did not work 

   as they contain alcohol type preservative/drying agents

Methylated Spirits – Applied:

   On Ears on outside – Face 

   (External Genital areas Briefly Dabbed only)

   On Lesions Anywhere – Legs, Feet, Toes.

   (On a Cotton Wad left until dry)

Mycil (Tolnafate ) – Applied:

   Feet, Toes – Have tried on Lesions and Pubic area – deters Briefly only


– The Bilaterals  – Deter initially – for a short time – then Attract

Nizoral – Applied:

   On Head – Scalp/Hair – Ears – and all over Body as Body Wash

   Occasionally dubbed undiluted on a small area under attack

   activity stopped – as with applying anything – but result undetected

Permethrin (Cream Shampoo) – Applied:

   On Head – Scalp/Hair – Ears

   Ineffective Unless it contains BUTOXIDE

   Delayed Yeast return and activity and feeling of dry stretched scalp

   indicates perhaps it may kills ‘spores’ – the Only one i know

Selsun Gold (Selenium Sulphite) – Applied:

   On Head – Scalp/Hair – Ears (Ineffective)

Fresh Lemon Juice – Applied:

   On Head – Scalp/Hair – Ears – Shoulders –Torso

   Relocates yeast quickly then it returns with a vengeance!

Apple Cider Vinegar – Applied:

   On Head – Scalp/Hair

   Relocates yeast quickly then it returns with a vengeance!

Iodine, Dettol Disinfectants – Applied:

   On Lesions directly–diluted and undiluted–as deterrents and in the Bath

   Greasy and Sticky and highly inviting Yeast back!

Neutrogena Oil Free – Applied:

   On Dry, Plastic -Lizard like skin- destroyed by Malassezia Sticky Layer.  

   Left on for extended time or overnight dissolves and clears dead skin

   but contains Salicylic acid (Blood Thinner) causing bruising 

   and in my case bleeding as well.

  ( Its Intended use is to be applied briefly and rinse )

   There are safer alternatives in Seawater and YAM 

Acetyl/Alcohol containing Items –such as Shampoos or Lotions

   Causing quick Yeast Return and possible proliferation 

   though i have not confirmed the latter!


Malassezia Fakes


Applied On the Body Externally


Colloidal Silver – Applied:

   All Over Body and Lesions – No apparent Effect whatsoever

   Also Taken Internally (for many months)

Scabies Creams

Athletes Foot cream

   Both the above applied Morning and Night back to back

   for many weeks – dozens of tubes


SALT as in  SEA SALT – POOL SALT –  And Commercial Table Salt

I have used both types for extended periods of time and massive quantities

except Commercial Salt due to Raising Blood Pressure and causing Clotting.

In Swimming Pool, in the Bath massive quantities- as Foot Spa etc

It hydrates the Skin but i noticed it leaves it vulnerable to Malassezia.

A minimal benefit was a somewhat faster healing of lesions

but not anywhere near the Real – Seawater!

Seawater Hydrates the Skin but Deters the Yeast  

–Protects and Heals – Fast!!!



Applied directly on Body and in the Bath water

Soda is the opposite to Salt that it Dries the Skin badly

and so rendering it vulnerable to Malassezia.

Burns where Malassezia is present or on lesions and only deters briefly – if so… 

Epsom Salts – Simply No Effect!


Malassezia Breeders


  Applied On the Body Externally


  * * * * ALL OILS!!! * * * *

OILS-Lotions-Ointments-Body washes-Shampoos-Conditioners 

Gels –Lanoline and Generally ALL Greasy /Fatty / Waxy items

Irrespective of Any Antifungal or Antiseptic qualities

including medicated preparations.

Theoretically expected and falsely believed to Kill –

 instead Facilitating Malassezia Multiplication


* Vaginal Clotrimazol (Cream) Prescription and Over Counter- Applied:

Inserted in Vagina. Initially soothing then shortly afterwards

burning like Fire -the Malassezia Fire- and a Frenzy of Traffic back in!

Took a while and repeated Blood and Lesions along the walls

to realise it was an enemy rather than a helper

having caused a lot of Unbearable pain and Discomfort 

for quite some time – and the more internal lesions

the greater the fight to keep Malassezia out.

It took starting to Insert 3 Acidophilus Capsules daily directly inside

to finally Sooth, Deter Malassezia and allow it to beautifully Heal the area.

(There was an unexplainable Paradox at this conjecture 

which i worked out after starting the regular course of Acidophilus

and being able to observe the cycle of internal/external traffic  

the healing, the deterring and the lessening of return traffic,

Malassezia  –early stage– coming out of the Vagina is harmless

causing only a Burning sensation as it spreads along on the outer body

and settles in follicles but It turns ferocious  when returning at maturity

creating painful Lesions along the walls as is preparing for multiplication.)


All Three Below – Applied:

Scabies Creams

Canesten Athletes Foot Cream (Clotrimazol 10mg/g)

Daktarin (Miconazole Nitrate)

All Over the Body – from Ears/Neck down to Toes

– Daily for Many months – Dozens of tubes…

and More and More Malassezia Frenzy after a brief quiet.
