After a three week experimentation following recovery
after the Attack
Using the H&S Shampoo only
it appears that where Malassezia would have otherwise
existed uneventfully –without any detrimental effects– on my body
the Shampoo caused it to Relocate – as suspected originally
and verified by the experiment- while it Flourished with the aid
of the Other (different brand Probiotic double strength)
(As Detailed in Entry Below)
Experiment Details See:
*MALASSEZIA DAILY MAINTENANCE *
Malassezia: Treatment – Relocation and Attack
Except for times experiencing a major health set back
such as Fractured Ribs or serious Lung Bleeding
and cannot keep up with my daily Preventative routine
i usually deal with only short, minor Malassezia incidents.
So I was shocked and surprised to disbelief
to discover a sudden double attack to a magnitude
similar to those experiencing four years back
– on two areas simultaneously:
“Eyelash Beds” and “Under Breast area”
I woke up Burning in Hellish Fire and Itch
as if during the night i had fallen through a dark shaft
into the nightmare i had lived some Four years back.
This is what was done to the skin under my Breast while asleep
Waking up Burning and Itching like the Fire of Hell!
I have no Photo of the Eyelashes at the Initial state
as i was too distressed to think about doing so
but i can say without the slightest exaggeration
my eyes looked like I had been crying for hours
and there was a thick mucousy layer blurring my vision
like a sheet of plastic or as if putting
someone else’ s prescription glasses on
making it impossible to see clearly.
Additionally, my entire right eyelid
kept flattering every few minutes like a severe nervous tick.
No doubt I got working immediately with great success
in relieving and improving the condition on both areas
but this is Not the Point of this story!
The Point is a Question:
What Caused this Sudden
-apparently unwarranted unprecedented- attack
all of a sudden and of such magnitude
i had not experienced for ages?”
My diet and meals have been steady for quite some time
due to high nutritional health requirements
as well as part of research/observation conducting an experiment.
Only light changes are always Fresh Natural Fruits or Vegetables
on a new fortnight’s shopping day.
Here is an example of Breakfast and Dinner
No contact or handling any clothing or other items in storage
or areas of any possibility of contamination or re-infection.
No Lung bleeding nor any other noticeable health misalignment
other than the known usual condition.
So, what was New?
Usually when i plan a calculated introduction of something new
i deal with one item at a time giving it 3-4 days or a week
so that i can observe the effects, positive or negative
– if there are any – without any doubt or confusion.
Somehow this time i failed to do so
as i did not consider the New as “New”
but as Old and Tested already – of Both new Items!…
After i had Treated and Cleared my Scalp Beautifully with Acidophilus
i had started to noticing a gradual Re-location of yeast to the internal
and external genital areas – so i decided to have a break in the daily
Scalp treatment but after stopping Acidophilus the result was a slow return
and re-accumulation back on the scalp, so i decided to temporarily
add another variation of Zinc Pyrithione ‘Head and Shoulders’ Shampoo
to stave it off until i could recommence the Acidophilus treatment anew.
This is the addition to the Regular one.
‘Smooth and Pink’ is the Regular and the ‘Men’ s is the Addition
The second addition was a different brand of Acidophilus capsules
with a higher Strength and variation of Lacto-Bifidus Bacteria
I started both on the same day and continued for three days
until i woke up to the above Horror!
I revisited the Chemist’s website where i purchase the Acidophilus capsules
to check once more whether i had missed any unsuitable listed ingredients
and was lucky to stumble upon this very helpful piece of information
posted as a disclaimer for a different Acidophilus Brand and list of ingredients.

So now I am not sure which One -if any- or Both Products introduced
may have caused this Ugly Result.
Trying to guess and piece it together there are a number of possibilities
but i will only mention the ones i consider more likely
until i am better able to verify.
I have mentioned in previous entries that if Malassezia is treated
with something that affects it but does not kill it on impact
it Relocates to a different area
Malassezia -whatever was able and in a mobile stage- responded
to the New shampoo with massive Relocation
down to the Eyes and Eyelashes areas.
The fact that Both eyes were affected Simultaneously and so Strongly
strengthens the conviction of my interpretation being Correct.
The New Acidophilus Capsules contain some Ingredient/s not listed
-such as Sugar meant to feed the Acidophilus bacteria-
which also fed the Yeast crazy and Stronger
and i have to Thank my Lucky-Lucky Luck
it lodged under my breast that i can reach and treat easily
instead of my Privates internal or external.
The capsules in the two brands I have been using regularly
contain Inulin, a plant sugar that feeds Both good
as well as some bad bacteria and No doubt Yeasts as well….
but without any noticeable adverse consequences
deterring and improving the condition
rather than reinforcing Malassezia presence
as the new Brand seems to have done
– If it was the capsules and not the shampoo.
Incidentally, while on the new ones
i had a 3 day blinding nauseating migraine of much greater intensity
than the brief ones i usually get with my regular brands (as shown below).
This migraine presence also indicates to me
the above interpretation is correct
but this one i will simply not re-test as it proved too bad
and i am not prepared to take the risk.
I intend though to retest the Shampoo on its own
once i have completely healed the affected areas.
So to put the picture in perspective, what i believe took place, was:
The Shampoo caused massive Yeast Relocation
and the New Probiotic Capsule Contents
Fed it Strong and it Span into a Frenzy!
It will take a while now to perfectly clear both areas.
The Eyelash beds
because the Yeast is embedded deep inside the follicles.
I can tell this because when i stretch the eyelids
i can see the yellow/white line from where its evil spawn
will be springing outwards for a few weeks.
I may have to resort to more drastic measures like in the past
using Methylated Spirits.
Here is how they look now
And the Breast area
because the skin is practically burned and while still inflamed
it will be highly inviting to more trying to settle in.
I try to minimise with treatment of alternating Seawater,
YAM mixture and Acidophilus Capsule diluted in a little water.
The Eyelashes i have been treating with Fresh Aloe Vera plant Gel
the true Plant from my veranda Pots – Not any Commercial gels in tube.
So now Malassezia has been largely avoiding the treated Breast area
and has re-located a bit further up in the right underarm area.
No lesions or visible redness there just itching at intervals
so i am treating it with Seawater as well , lol!
and so we go round and round the mill…
Relocation is a word that keeps coming up a lot
and is mainly connected with any treatment affecting the Yeast
– whether Natural or Chemical –
but also when it eventually renders an area inhospitable to its needs
due to the damage it has caused it…
