*MALASSEZIA DAILY MAINTENANCE*
* Malassezia – Active Living and Work Environment *
(To read Entry click on Link above))
One important point that must be Clearly Understood
about Malassezia and its Symptoms, is that there are
No ‘Quick Fix- No mess- No Pain’ ‘Pills’
that Kill or Heal Instantly
Some can Deter, Some can Sooth Instantly and / or Heal Faster
or do All of the above but it all takes Time and Consistent application.
Therefore Prevention is the Mother of … Intention! …Lol!
One problem that affects Active people adversely and with disadvantage
–and by active i mean all those who go out to work
or do household chores having to spend a lot of time standing up–
is that the Muscles of the Body and generally the Skin Surface
are Uptight making it difficult to detect effectively
any surreptitious movements at the time they occur
unless they are very potent and usually by that time may be too late.
Postponing also thinking
“I will take care of this when i get home – in 2 hours”
will not do good because Malassezia works on a 3 1/2 – 4 day cycle
and every minute counts as a stage in its growth and development.
Two hours are nothing in the life of a Human but for Malassezia
it is like progressing from a Toddler stage to Teenage-hood
or to be more precise … from a Nymph to a Breeding Menace!
So again: Prevention is the Mother of … Intention! …
Seawater does Not Smell, is Not Greasy,
has No Colour and does Not go Off.
Acidophilus capsules have a strong -freshly baked bread- aroma
hard to be traced on a person, practically Colourless translucent Skin colour
when mixed with water -at least the ones i use!- and can also be kept
out of the fridge for 2-3 days before going off.
They can both serve quietly if put in Small –sample – Bottles
– preferably with a nozzle for controlled flow-
or vitamin containers and taken along in a Handbag or a Briefcase
and applied discretely where some privacy can be available.

These two good helpers can be unobtrusive in a working environment
offer a quick relief and can stave off an unpleasant full blown attack
by interrupting it – if applied as soon as any Symptoms are Felt.
They both offer protection to some degree under normal circumstances
by Deterring Malassezia from settling in an area.
Failing Prevention of settling-in they can still upset the breeding cycle
cutting it short and even if failed that stage
they can sooth and help heal any lesion much faster.
At what stage Prevention may fail is dependent on
a) Malassezia’ s strength and Kamikaze determination at that particular time.
b) How long it was allowed to settle in the area before action taken
c) Susceptibility of Skin and or quick availability of Blood supply in area
d) Inadequate –Seawater / Acidophilus – protective coverage
e) Inadequate Thoroughness of Cleaning and Drying the area after Urination
f) Favourable, inviting Temperature in area by prolonged sedentary time
as in desk / computer work etc.
Pretty hard to guard against all those advantages the creature has on its side
especially when a person is outside home comfort and treatment availability.
A possible –not trialled yet– helpful trick for ladies in a working environment
-alongside with the above- might be pouring either Seawater
or 2-3 Acidophilus capsules diluted in 4-5 Tbs water
on a Menstruation Pad so thst it can provide constant contact
with the Private area during sitting or standing times.
One drawback may be that modern pads are designed to draw moisture
to the bottom layer and leave the top one dry
in which case this may not work as well as might be expected
but i intend to give it a try as there is nothing to lose…
Personally i m thinking of the night time when i am more vulnerable
despite splashing the area thoroughly before bedtime.
Five hours good sleep can give a treacherous devil plenty of opportunity!
As for the gentlemen i am sorry i have No suggestions in this regard.
I can only imagine if i were there i would wrap the injured part
–should that solution be viable??? – with a thin gauze / wound dressing
impregnated with either of the above and see the results.
It may be rather impractical due to less privacy in public or office facilities
and /or due to the shape, flexibility and variable size of the part etc
so it leaves you guys on your own ingenuity to find a suitable solution
for a more constant contact against several trips to the lavatory
to splash-on the above.
