*READERS’ KEYWORDS AND QUESTIONS*
Malassezia and This or That …
*K1 * malassezia aloe vera*
Aloe Vera is a natural gel and as such it should attract Malassezia.
It does not appear to do so -as far i can tell- but neither repels it.
Malassezia responds to it – perhaps due to its contining alkaloids
but does not cause it to move away either.
As the gel starts to dry though, it seems to inadvertently
Kill Malassezia being trapped in it and drying with it.
It turns very itchy for a while and then … nothing …
Once Aloe Vera has dried up new Malassezia batches
eventually return to the area but not as much
or as quick as with any other Oils and Gels.
Applied on Lesions initially it stings a bit
but it is a good natural healer and inflammation soother.
Due to its consistency it is best applied Only on open areas
where it can dry fast killing Malassezia along
while in enclosed or moist humid areas
it can have uncertain or even inviting results.
For this reason it is my less preferred option for most areas
except for Eyelids,Eyelashes, outer Ears and Nose.
*Q1 *does aloe vera gel cure trich *
I believe the Reader means a Commercial Gel in tube
or it would be a lot of plant required to cover all hair and scalp.
I had tried Aloe Vera Gel in tube and although it contained
some alcohol type drying agents it did not prove to have any effect,
other than a negative one of the alcohol attracting more Malassezia.
Would the fresh plant cure Trich?*
NO!- – – It could temporarily kill whatever dried up with the gel
but given the hair and the large area it would leave a lot surviving.
Even if it Did… Would it be the end? – Would it be a Cure?
If by ‘ Cure’ we mean either a once of – or a few repeated treatments
that would fix the problem forever onwards, then
NO! … Nothing Topical can ‘ Cure” Malassezia but Temporarily.

*Q2 * will a yogurt mask heal pityrosporum *
Repeated applications of a Yoghurt mask
-depending on the extend and severity of the problem-
will Deter Malassezia settling on Scalp
Sooth Itching and Inflammation
and will Heal any Lesions
but will not Kill Pityrosporum.
A YAM Mixture (Yog-Acidophilus capsule-Milk)
may Deter Malassezia from settling in area
possibly even kill some but Not if in Spore stage

*K2* lemon juice against melassezie yeast *
*K3* apple cider for trich *
*Lemon Juice and Apple Cider Vinegar
were the first two items i used
when the problem broke out some four years back.
I used them repeatedly -both myself and my husband- and we both noticed
that when Lemon juice was applied the ‘ Lice’ as we thought
as we though we were trying to clear back then
had Relocated down to our Shoulders and Back!
It was true, except it was not Lice which we did not know until a lot later…
Malassezia does not like Fresh Lemon when first applied on an area
but seems to love it when it dries out and so it is with Vinegar!
Both of them seem to have the initial repelling effect
followed by a stampede back once area dries out.
Considering that both are good Bread Dough /Leavening agents
it is not surprising that a similar Yeast family would like them too.

*K3* apple cider vinegar for malessizia *
*K4* apple cider vinegar Malassezia *
It has been many years since i last consumed Apple Cider Vinegar
because it used to cause me kidney pains i have nowadays,
i m having nowadays, so i have not trialled it as an Internal treatment
against Malassezia but i dont think i need to!…. i know already…
I can imagine it going down a perfect brewing cauldron
of digestive Bacteria and Yeasts … and making their day!…
Beneficial i can imagine as digestion aid especially in breaking down fats?
-not sure if a fact or fallacy as there are many- and most likely
helpful against some bad flora – but not to a person already
– but not to a person already fighting Yeast trouble.
Its a … Gut Feeling i have and i have learned to Trust it!
So, No, i do Not believe it would do any harm to Malassezia
if in fact it did not do it the world of good…
I have though used it extensively on my skin and at times my head
as a degreaser and hair lustre improving agent –pre and during
Malassezia times- and had found it good in all areas of expectation
other than the Malassezia – due to the inviting after effect
as already mentioned above.
Its one positive against Malassezia is its degreaser quality
but ONLY IF there is a SEVERELY matted hair problem
and ONLY used ONCE for that Purpose
otherwise i would steer clear of it in Any area of the Body!
* * *
*Q3* does urine kill Malassezia *
NO! It does Not!
On the contrary, it Attracts both due to its Wetness bas well as its Acidity
so it is imperative -and equally important for both men and women-
that the genital area is thoroughly washed and dried
after each and every visit to the bathroom.
A Painless Inconvenience against Painful Trouble…

*K6* malasesia and vitamin c *
Vitamin C -applied topically- appears to be Malassezia Friendly!
I had been inserting it in the Vagina with other ingredients for several weeks
running into months and had never suspected it was causing trouble
until i used it on its own.
Though Beneficial in so many ways, areas and ailments under the Sun
it does not seem to make Any difference in Malassezia’s volumes or activity.
It appears to be Neutral in regards to Malassezia when taken Internally:
I have been on very high dosages daily for many years due to my Lung illness
frequent bleeds and susceptibility to a host of secondary infections etc.
I had also had to reduce considerably at times for short periods
as well as -though most infrequently- stop completely
-depending on the circumstances demanding doing so-
but neither way has ever been an indication of any perceptible difference
in any way regarding Malassezia. ***
