*READERS’ KEYWORD QUESTIONS*
Malassezia and Probiotics
*K: * bacteria vs Malassezia *
I assume by ‘bacteria’ the Reader means Probiotic Bacteria
as in Acidophilus – Lacto-Bifidous Family, etc
* Friendly to the Skin and to the Gut and help Cure many Infections.
* Highly Improve the Condition of Malassezia troubled Vagina.
* Deter Malassezia in any area they are applied on
* Sooth and help Lesions Heal fast – but Do Not directly Kill Malassezia…
I can confirm the above declarations after conducting repeated trials
over many months and several stop – restart treatments.
2014: This reference is to taking them Internally
Even a Creature like this
…Cannot Kill Malassezia
(This is meant to be Funny!)
Except for Hydrogen Peroxide
but at a High Price of Mess and unforgettable Pain
Not sure worth the trouble
given the Temporary nature of the Victory!
*K * inulin Malassezia *
Inulin is a processed Plant Sugar usually added in Probiotics Capsules
as Food for the Acidophilus Bacteria.
Unfortunately, they have been found to feed some bad Bacteria as well
and most likely some rather … appreciative opportunistic Yeasts!
Personally, when i take them orally i experience nail-sharp headaches.
I had written previously that they did not seem to adversely affect my man
but recently trying to build his immune system prior to an overseas trip
i gave him one capsule daily for a month and he did not tell me
he had been experiencing side effects until after he had made
an appointment with the dentist for a tooth extraction due to pain.
I told him it was likely Inulin causing pain and other symptoms
and after i stopped giving it to him – tooth ache was gone.
He felt embarrassed he had to tell the dentist
and proceeded for a routine clean…
For myself to minimise the effect i insert them directly in the vagina
and in the Anal areas as this way they also bypass the stomach fluids
and with a higher chance of survival.
Judging by the ‘Before –During – After’ Acidophilus treatment results
it is Obvious the Benefits far outweigh any discomfort or inconvenience.
*K * malassezia probiotics*
Beneficial as Probiotics may be, one ought to be very careful
about the Brand and Total list of Ingredients,
as Inulin may not be the only one contained.
Searching for a list of ingredients in other Brands
i found this piece of information which indicates
Malassezia inflicted people should be wary
about all the contents in a product as some ingredients
may compound a problem one is endeavouring to solve:

Saccharomuces Boulardii Yeasts belong to the Probiotics category
and may be beneficial for digestion, against diarrhoea and other conditions
but obviously not for those with Malassezia affliction or week immune system
according to the information provided above.
Not All good things are good for everything…
*Q1 * is lactobacillus rhamnosus effective for treating Malassezia*
Lactobacilllus Rhamnosus is part of the Natural Friendly Flora
found in the digestive system, Vagina – Urinary and Genital tracts
where it protects against antagonistic bad bacteria.
I have been using a Brand containg L Rhamnosus
for the Vagina and Intestinal area
and a cheaper Brand that without it
as a Deterrent/ Soother/ healer etc for external areas and sores.
Some times when i have used the non L Rhamnosus ones for the Internals
i thought they were not as effective but it may have been a preconceived idea
– preconceived ideas can often inhibit perception of reality in any area of life! –
or perhaps because they are bubble seal packaged keeping fresh longer.
The other ones seem to dry out after a week or so… something to consider…
Now to answer the Question:
If by “effective treating Malassezia” is inferred “Killing it’
then the answer is No.
If it means as a ‘General Beneficial Treatment against Malassezia’
then I Can say Yes!...
I have found it to be So – with absolutely No doubt.

Lactobacillus Ramnosus is definitely effective for treating Malassezia
I must clarify though what i mean:
* It is effective in Improving and Restoring the Vaginal environment
after Malassezia’s often devastating effects – my long term battle
good testimony of a finally victorious result – beyond my best expectations
* It Deters Malassezia presence – Reducing it considerably in time
if applied frequently and consistently over several weeks or months
-depending on the individual’s condition.
2014: It took a long time to discover that they actually Do
-at least Acidophilus does- slowly and steady
Not on Impact and as far i can tell not the Spore stage either
( details later Entries)
Generally speaking Probiotics prove to be Beneficial for many more areas
than the intended treatments not only in capsule but also as contained
in a variety of foods.
