(READERS FUNNY SEARCH KEYWORDS)
The Funny Side
K1: * i left zinc pyrithione on my genitles overnight *
To be honest i found hard to stifle a few giggles with this one
but i must admit i have done the same thing myself
I would really love to hear more about this story…
*K2: * scalp sores picking sea breeze *
Lol! and ROFL!…
I have a very fertile vivid childish imagination for all things
but his one has found me wanting!…
What is the Reader saying? … what were they after?
Just cannot come anywhere near guessing
so i shall leave this one alone
*K3: * menstruation Malassezia *
Due to its Prolific Reproductive abilities and Name
i have always thought of Malassezia as feminine in nature
but never considered possible
that it could … menstruate, lol!
(Ok, maybe this is not very funny… )
The Serious Side
*K1: * i left zinc pyrithione on my genitles overnight *
I assume the Reader refers to (Zinc Pyrithione)Shampoo.
As i mentioned above i have done the same thing myself
on both the Private area as well as on the Scalp
Successful treatment but came with a very High Price.
Leaving the Shampoo overnight on either of these areas
although it produced some result Locally(!)
a) it did Not solve the Malassezia Problem except temporarily
b) it was absorbed by the skin causing very negative side effects
that lasted – at least in my case – way longer after the application
and many more new repeated assaults by Malassezia.
I have modified the method since an only applying and leaving on
for just 2 hours at a time –far in between – usually before Bath time.
Helpful enough while considerably minimising side effects.
Once a shock result is achieved then applying Acidophilus Capsules
mixed with a little water is a more natural totally harmless treatment
that can be applied and left on overnight and if done consistently
it clears the Scalp brilliantly.
As for the privates area the same principle applies except that
in that area it is practically a daily battle keeping Malassezia away.
Acidophilus capsules alone can clear the Scalp without the aid
of added PZ shampoo treatment – just the regular use
but it takes much longer to achieve the final result
and then needs to be maintained regularly
much like any other treatment Natural or Chemical.
It is a lot harder though to keep Malassezia away from the genital area
being the thoroughfare of Its several times daily ‘In and Out’ Traffic.
Most people do not feel that traffic and have no awareness of it
so they only discover suddenly what seems to be out of the blue
the Itchy Burning Bumps, Paper Cut Scratch lines and open Lesions
And this is where the Acidophilus Capsules or Seawater *
prove helpful in Deterring Malassezia Settling in the area
and producing those painful results.
(*and i mean Seawater – Not sea Salt + water – Nor Salt + water!)
*K3: * menstruation Malassezia *
Joke aside, there is a real and serious connection
between Malassezia and Blood and quite a valid concern.
Malassezia is attracted to open wounds and inflammation
due to easier accessibility of blood in those areas.
It appears it needs Blood to reproduce as this takes place
towards the what i have observed as the third part of its cycle
i.e maturity –when ready to reproduce – digging into the flesh
drawing Blood and creating Itchy Painful Lesions.
I cannot offer the insights of personal experience on this occasion
because i have not been through a menstruation cycle
or any effect Malassezia may have during that time
due to early onset of menopause caused by serious Lung illness.
It is not hard though to imagine how attractive and inviting
a Bleeding Uterine Wall may become to Malassezia.
Yet I have a suspicion that there may be a ‘Nature’ s Paradox’ here
where more Malassezia is cleared Out rather than Settling In…
It is rather hard to verify for sure, just a gut feeling of mine
and a logical deduction –on the part of Nature’s wisdom – lol!
because if that were the case then every woman -month-in – month-out
could end up with a tremendous overtake and upset of Balance
-despite a normal immune system- that could seriously threaten
human fertility etc and i m sure Mother Nature would never intend it so…
I imagine though that during the days building to it
Malassezia may be more likely
to cause increased concentration in the area
with possibly increased vaginal Itching, Pain and Cramps
due to attempts of attaching itself on the walls to start digging in
–until of course the … avalanche washes it out…
Scenario described above just a speculation on my part.
I wonder if during the building up to the menstruation time
Acidophilus could prove as Relieving and Deterring as it normally is.
If I were personally in such situation i would try it out
as there is no harm and the more Acidophilus present in that area,
the less likely of competing presence of any Yeasts
or other Nasties of all kinds including Malassezia.
