* Malassezia ~ Acidophilus ~ and Fluorescent Green *
A persistent devil digging furiously inside my Ear with maddening Itch
another ripple effect of the recent
resulted in treating it with Acidophilus Capsule diluted in water.
It took a few days to clear but in the meantime it furnished me
with additional Photos, Confirmations of Previous findings and Interpretations
as well as possibly new …somewhat hopeful …if not exciting Discoveries!
There are different distinct parts to this topic
which will be necessary to present in Several Linked Parts
– Every bit worthy and Interesting
Acidophilus and the Fluorescent Green
Being busy and totally immersed working through my
‘To be Posted’ entries and not wanting to get up,
i discarded two small cotton wool buds from each
of my Acidophilus treated ears into a small disposal container
placed by my work station instead of doing so in the bathroom.
A couple of hours later i pulled the plastic bag out of the container
to dispose it properly and something strange arrested my eye!
Both the Cotton Wools with the diluted Acidophilus
and presumably the offending Malassezia digger,
were Brightly Coloured
… Fluorescent Green!…
I was totally mystified because Acidophilus is almost colourless
and Malassezia harvested from the Ears normally a weak creamy yellow.
All previous cotton wools for the brief period remaining in a discarding container
were the usual colourless creamy yellow as far i can tell and without anything
detectable on them – other than the Peace achieved in the area used.
So what on earth was this Fluorescent Green???
It crossed my mind that there might be a chemical interaction
between Acidophilus – or some ingredient in the capsule –
and the Orange Malassezia but why only this time???
Here are the two Photos i took right upon discovery
The finding –the Only one like it ever – kept piercing my mind
more than even the digging devil that prompted the treatment did
and for the rest of the day and long into the night when finally a faint memory
surfaced from some distant time back when i had read somewhere…
something …about …. something that was … or showed fluorescent???
Information links buried in my old hardly functioning Laptop too hard to access…
I checked some current documents about the Orange/Yellow
Pityriacitrin compound but there was nothing about it being Fluorescent,
so an idea emerged in my mind;
Why not Google it? …
And here is what came up!
I wonder what circumstances or chemical reactions made it
fluoresce this particular time while never previously.
I am guessing due to the Acidophilus interaction but why not other times???
Of course it is possible there may have been other times
but just did not happen to notice as it had never occurred to me before
to examine disposed rubbish closer.
Usually … i close my eyes when i get rid of things, Lol!
Anyway, what comes out of this, is
1) * One More Confirmation
that Symptoms Are Caused by Malassezia!
2) * A good Possibility that Acidophilus Bacteria
are not – after all – just Soothing and Healing Fast
but Do Kill Malassezia
– perhaps not instantly but within a very short time?….
