Malassezia – ‘Dying Off’ Symptom – K

Malassezia Dying Off

 

       From time to time i do experience the  “Dying Off” Symptom 

                   but as an onset of a Group of Symptoms

                            rather than a generalised one.

 

      Most or all of those Symptoms usually occur Simultaneously.

 

– Intense ripples of Shivering all over the Body

  (not caused by fever or external temperature)                                                            

– Sudden outbreak of Catarrh

– Runny eyes

– Feeling as if my Blood is Poisoned

– General feeling of Illness like Flu or Cold

– Nausea

 

During those times it feels like a sudden outbreak or re-contamination                      

has taken place and those symptoms are the reaction of the Body’ s                          

    defence mechanism rather than Malassezia itself “dying off “.

 

I know when diyng–on an external part of the Body– it releases some evil stuff

but i have not discovered or isolated any item or group of , that may cause

Malassezia to die Internally and consequently producing those symptoms.

 

The fact also that during the onset of those symptoms i get to experience

increased activity confirms the fact that it is not  Malassezia dying 

but rather … growing instead – triggering the Body’s responses.                                                 

Malassezia and immunity                 

Additionally, in most occurrences i can trace it back

to coming in contact or handling something that has potentially

been carrying something ‘still able’to jump to life.            

The onset of symptoms can start as soon as an hour or so after contact

or a full day later and i am guessing that it is due to how long it has taken

for the ‘invader’ from a dormant state to start spreading and affecting the Body…

 

It has also happened -but more rarely- as if it all appeared out of the Blue

and have been unable to trace it back to anything i have touched or used etc.

I have never been able to connect it with any Internal or External treatment

as i have never used any Internal -except once-*1 and the External whether

Chemical as used way back or Natural  as during the past couple of years

have been Topical only and rather impossible to affect such massive response.

 

Usually when a ‘Die off’ syndrome occurs and cannot trace it back  

to some potential source of re-contamination, i try to determine  

whether there may have been a different type of exposure, such as

a mild cold or virus etc, which in turn by occupying my immune system

and weakening temporarily its defences is providing Malassezia

with a free, more favourable environment to proliferate uninhibited

                     -but never appears to be the case.

Therefore I am convinced that in My personal case and experience                      

 the “Dying off” Symptoms are not an indication of Malassezia itself

    Dying but rather my Body’s immune response to an outbreak.                                               

Malassezia and Inflammation R       

                                  Now one may ask:

      “ How can you tell the Dying off Symptoms are definitely due 

      to a Malassezia outbreak and not to a Flu virus or mild Cold? ”  

It would be a valid question and the lines of differentiation can often be too thin!

For example, if i had a Cold i would most likely experience

most of the symptoms as well as an increased Malassezia activity…

                                              Right?…

                                          Well…NO!…

Time after time i have noticed that there are certain things that Thankfully

       though they never get to kill or even make a dint to Malassezia

   they severely inhibit its activity often bringing it down to an abrupt halt.          

              Another extraordinary thing is that Malassezia knows

           i am coming down with a Cold or Flu or severe Bleeding               

      about a day or two before i do and i am … the last one to know…

             therefore if the symptoms were due to a Cold or Flu 

       i would be experiencing a … suspicious slow down of activity.                   

Additionally, one of the symptoms specifically has never, in my case

been part of a Flu or Cold – and that is the ‘Poisoned Blood’ Feeling

which i am sure it is not a ‘feeling’ but either my Body’s Fighting

chemicals or Malassezia release of its own which cause

localised  inflammation as well as immune system stimulation  

                       – or possibly a cocktail of Both!

      Fortunately the Symptoms never last for more than 2-3 days

     and with Daily Maintenance, activity falls back to normal levels

                             and all symptoms disappear.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               *

*1  Refers to Internal Prescription Medication

     I had tried several internal treatments listed in 

Malassezia Yeast: Complete List & Results of Substances & Methods Tested

 

                                            2014

             It appears that some of an Outbreak  Symptoms

                    are also  experienced during a Die Off.

I have also come to identify one which is characteristically different

                    when an Outbreak  than a Die Off.

    A rather Peculiar very Strong Taste and Smell in  my mouth

    which is simultaneously Sour and Bitter during an Outbreak

        but Awful like Sewerage or Dead Blood when a Die Off.

           The Sourly-Bitter one  is frequently faintly present

                but Overpoweringly Strong during Outbreak.

Malassezia Updates and Answers to YOUR Questions

*

*READERS’ KEYWORD QUESTIONS*

Malassezia Q & A s

    *Malassezia Updates and Answers to YOUR Questions*

                     Malassezia Updates

 

I have a number of New Entries on the Processing board

but when i saw this keyword i thought i might give it Priority

as i judged it Relevant to All New or Regular Visitors

 

*K: *any new updates to sonatas story about mallasezia furfur*

 

Unfortunately, this very well and specifically phrased keyword

although it theoretically should have directed straight onto this site

it most likely did not and possibly neither did it land the Reader

         in the right place in the Original Sonata’s Blogs ….

 

     So the Response  to this Keyword is

                             * * * * *

* Malassezia Daily *

      IS the NEW Site for ALL UPDATES 

     while the * Malassezia Blog*

                  is now Completed

                            * * * * *

                            2014:

               * Malassezia Blog *

       Has just been Updated,  Edited,

           Corrected and Enhanced 

 

I endeavour to post an Entry a Day but although each Entry

takes a few Seconds to Read, it takes a Lot of Work

Time and Effort from Beginning to End to achieve 

a Completed, Coherent and hopefully well Presented End. 

 

Malassezia not the only Evil i have to deal with in my daily life 

and with very Low reserves of Energy plus a Long List of 

Q & As and Keywords and Daily … Adventures of my Own 

with New Insights, Discoveries or Mishaps …during sleep

i can see i have enough on my plate to last me to the end of my days 

so i have already decided to Live Like A Tree….

Living and Dying like a Tree

and Die Like a Tree… i.e Standing Up!

 

This is one of the Reasons i also decided to devote my time to posting

an Entry a day that may Benefit many Readers for months to come 

rather than engaging time and effort on a one to one correspondence. 

Some Serious cases Excluded of course, even though most likely

this may cause a day’s delay in posting my Daily Entry

but i Cannot deny Help to anyone in genuine Need or Urgency

and when obvious they have already done their legwork

on the Entries already published.
 
This is the Note Informing All Visitors
                                  *
                    Malassezia Correspondence

 

 How the Queue works:

 

I don’t know if Google has detected by now and Included *Malassezia Daily*

in its search engine and and if Keywords would direct here

so  i check Daily the Original Sonata’s Blogs 

and from there i collect and compile a List of newer or not dealt with topics.

 

I prioritise those QAs and Ks more frequently used by Readers

or i feel there is an interesting new angle to the QAKs 

that make me think i have not addressed them adequately or as specifically 

in my previous entries, or i have Discovered/ Confirmed/ Re-evaluated

            Newer Information about a topic. 

The queuing also depends on the length of info and work i have to put in

in addressing each topic – often  working on several Entries simultaneously

and promoting shorter ones to keep up with the daily posting if possible

while taking work to Bed on my Apple iPad at night if not too tired or sleepy. 

 

So, i hope making it as clear as this, i can rely on your patience

bearing with me with the belief that sooner or later you may find 

your Own QAK replied to, with the most recently updated 

information available to me 

 

Bookmarking *Malassezia Site* can also bring you directly here.

Malassezia Funny Keywords with Serious Content-QA

  *  

*READERS’ KEYWORD QUESTIONS*

  & 

*MALASSEZIA AND HUMOUR*

Malassezia Humour

(READERS FUNNY SEARCH KEYWORDS)

The Funny Side 

     K1:  * i left zinc pyrithione on my genitles overnight *

 

Malassezia on genitals

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 *

 

Malasseia on scalp

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 *

 

Malassezia and menstruation

                   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 *

 

Malassezia and menstruation

    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.

Malassezia and Probiotics – K

  *

    *READERS’ KEYWORD QUESTIONS*

Malassezia Keywords

   Malassezia and Probiotics

Malassezia and Probiotic Bacteria

*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

Aligator 

 …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: 

 

Saccharomyces Bouldari P.

                               ( Click on Image to Enlarge )

     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

 

Malassezia and Acidophilus

 

                        and a cheaper Brand that without it

as a Deterrent/ Soother/ healer etc for external areas and sores.

 

Malassezia and Probiotics F

 

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.

 

   Malassezia and Rhamnosus

                                  ( Click on Image to Enlarge )

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  

                                                  and 

* 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.

Malassezia: Treatment- Relocation – Attack -DM

 

Re-Blogged due to additional Info:

 

10 Nov 13

    Treating Malassezia MD

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 – Product Clarification and Warning

*MALASSEZIA DAILY MAINTENANCE *

Malassezia 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 

Malassezia Breast Burn 1

   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

      Healthy Meals 1 MD

 

  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.

Malassezia and Shampoo

‘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.

 

Saccharomyces Bouldari P.

                              (Click on Image to Enlarge)

    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

 

                                                       So …

 

                                                Possibility 1:

       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.

 

                                              Possibility 2:

       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).

                                           

    Malassezia Probiotics

 

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

Malassezia on Eylashes 1 MD

Malassezia on Eylashes 2 MD

 

                               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…

Malassezia Into Skin & Lesion Cheesy Centers – QA

*

  *READERS’ KEYWORD QUESTIONS*

Malassezia Q & A s

Q1:  * does malessizia bury into skin of human *

   Malassezia in Follicles and Skin

 

A:   The answer is Yes!

Malassezia is only briefly exposed on the surface of the skin.

It usually settles deep down in the hair follicles

or under the outer skin layer until ready to mobilise

and find a place to attach to and start digging in 

to draw blood and presumably reproduce.

 

In the photos below can be observed

1- Settling into Hair Follicles

Malassezia Hair Follicles2 MB

Hair follicles are visibly Swollen and Pus-filled.

 

2- Forming Bumps under the Skin

Bumps under Skin MD

 

3 – Developing into larger deeper Lesions

Malassezia  Bumps1 MB

Two Black –Blood – Specks on the left photo indicate entrance points.

 

4 – Some appear to erupt suddenly from under the skin

where No Bumps have been present prior

forming very Itchy Burning Paper Cut Scratch lines

Scratch Lines MD

 

Of course it could be deceptive surface attack just digging in

rather than erupting outwards and no doubt hard to verify.

Paper Cut Scratch Lines never seem to grow in size or develop 

cheesy centers – or if so they are minute and invisible to the eye- 

and lasting only  –a least on me – a few days.

Several of them i have viewed under Digital Microscope

did not appear to have a discernible cheesy center

 

*Q2:  * do malassezia yeast sores have centers *

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 

Malassezia Lesion MD

 

A:     I am not sure what the Reader means by ‘center’

 

I have suffered in the past several large as well as small Lesions

with an initially whitish yellow watery but clingy cheesy nucleus

formed in the center, becoming progressively thicker

and impossible to separate and scrape off the skin.

 

Perhaps it was part of the skin layer that turned that way

and possibly all lesions cause that center but not always visible.

 

This type of lesions are the worst and once formed

they keep reproducing  throughout a 24/7 cycle

of a ‘Start/Rest – Start/Rest – Start/Rest ‘ rythm

at 2-3 hour irregular intervals that last for 3 1/2 – 4 weeks 

causing itching and burning during the active periods. 

On Rare times i could bite my lips and dig in and scrape the yellow out

if successfully done i would find either it had finished – and stopped 

and the lesion started to heal or if left some still in there 

it had formed more but smaller than the initial and kept reproducing.

This indicates that there is some significance to that Yellow substance

perhaps –and i say only perhaps!– being the Fungus itself!

 

Malassezia  Lesion5 MB

Photos  1 and 3 show a more widespread initial yellowing

  which eventually contracts as it thickens and hardens.

 

I remember back then i used to treat them with Soda, Salts

and a wide Variety of Creams and Chemicals

producing Agonising pain and making Bath time  

an excruciating experience. 

 

I don’t get them anymore which coincides with starting

to use only Natural Preventative means

against Malassezia settling and forming them.

 

Whatever sparingly appearing small lesions i happen to get

–usually produced during the night while i m asleep– i treat 

with Seawater, YAM Mixture, or Acidophilus capsules

 in a little water and they heal quickly without dramas.
