*READERS’ KEYWORD QUESTIONS*
Q1: * does malessizia bury into skin of human *
A: The answer is Yes!
Malassezia is only briefly exposed on the surface of the skin.
It usually settles deep down in the hair follicles
or under the outer skin layer until ready to mobilise
and find a place to attach to and start digging in
to draw blood and presumably reproduce.
In the photos below can be observed
1- Settling into Hair Follicles
Hair follicles are visibly Swollen and Pus-filled.
2- Forming Bumps under the Skin
3 – Developing into larger deeper Lesions
Two Black –Blood – Specks on the left photo indicate entrance points.
4 – Some appear to erupt suddenly from under the skin
where No Bumps have been present prior
forming very Itchy Burning Paper Cut Scratch lines
Of course it could be deceptive surface attack just digging in
rather than erupting outwards and no doubt hard to verify.
Paper Cut Scratch Lines never seem to grow in size or develop
cheesy centers – or if so they are minute and invisible to the eye-
and lasting only –a least on me – a few days.
Several of them i have viewed under Digital Microscope
did not appear to have a discernible cheesy center
*Q2: * do malassezia yeast sores have centers *
A: I am not sure what the Reader means by ‘center’
I have suffered in the past several large as well as small Lesions
with an initially whitish yellow watery but clingy cheesy nucleus
formed in the center, becoming progressively thicker
and impossible to separate and scrape off the skin.
Perhaps it was part of the skin layer that turned that way
and possibly all lesions cause that center but not always visible.
This type of lesions are the worst and once formed
they keep reproducing throughout a 24/7 cycle
of a ‘Start/Rest – Start/Rest – Start/Rest ‘ rythm
at 2-3 hour irregular intervals that last for 3 1/2 – 4 weeks
causing itching and burning during the active periods.
On Rare times i could bite my lips and dig in and scrape the yellow out
if successfully done i would find either it had finished – and stopped
and the lesion started to heal or if left some still in there
it had formed more but smaller than the initial and kept reproducing.
This indicates that there is some significance to that Yellow substance
perhaps –and i say only perhaps!– being the Fungus itself!
Photos 1 and 3 show a more widespread initial yellowing
which eventually contracts as it thickens and hardens.
I remember back then i used to treat them with Soda, Salts
and a wide Variety of Creams and Chemicals
producing Agonising pain and making Bath time
an excruciating experience.
I don’t get them anymore which coincides with starting
to use only Natural Preventative means
against Malassezia settling and forming them.
Whatever sparingly appearing small lesions i happen to get
–usually produced during the night while i m asleep– i treat
with Seawater, YAM Mixture, or Acidophilus capsules
in a little water and they heal quickly without dramas.
