Malassezia Coconut Calamity 1

 

 

For Several Months now and throughout several Entries

   i have mentioned i had been Lucky to have found

Two Good Probiotic Formulas and One Good Shampoo

    which i have been Using and Relied upon heavily 

      as part of my Daily Routine and Maintenance

– together with the application of Seawater and YAM-

   in keeping a practically Sore and Lesion Free Body

 and tolerably Low Levels of Malassezia Presence and Activity

  

            I only recently deviated slightly – or so i thought 

                    seeking an even greater improvement

                          using a Different Probiotic 

                    and Same Brand Variation Shampoo

                 Both of Stronger dosages in the Ingredients

                supposed to help produce these good results.

 

               Alas, it was a Highly Regrettable move

                 for which i paid a memorable price

                        as Detailed in the Entry:

       “Malassezia Treatment-Relocation- Attack

 

                      After the Unexpected Nasty Surprise

              i Discontinued Both and posted in a following Entry

                    a Possible Probiotic Formula Ingredient

             that may have contributed to the sudden onslaught

                in conjunction with the variation of  Shampoo.

When i started to recover i Re-tested the suspected Shampoo again

        in order to make absolutely sure it was part of the problem

                  and not just caused by the Probiotic itself 

but what followed was the Return of the same Negative indications

 

                   Right after finally sorting out the causes

                   i am now faced with the New Challenge

   this time from my Regular and up until now Reliable Shampoo

      ‘Head and Shoulders’ – Smooth and Silky-Zinc Pyrithione!

 

             As i have mentioned before in several entries

         i used it not only as Shampoo for the Head / Hair 

                  but in the Bath and as Hand wash 

        and practically as a replacement of soap generally…

 

I had just recovered from the latest result of the initial Malassezia attack

      and back in good ground having cleared lesions and sores

                  and reached Lower levels of threat

       though still some signs of ‘Orange’ production 

                        evidenced on my clothes.

  

Then my Man brought home a slightly different container of H&S Shampoo

announcing a Change of the Pump and a Noticeable jump in Price.

       I Liked the new Pump and did not care about the Price

since it was producing good results allowing me some better life

                    so i eventually forgot all about it.

 

             I could not exactly recall which day i changed

              from the Old H&S shampoo to the New one 

                – i had no Reason to mark it …Had I???

                    except that after a couple of days 

i started to notice a series of weird and bothersome events:                                                       

1) Something in the house wafted Strong Coconut Fragrance

       all around me, whatever part of the house i went

                       all throughout the day.

     I thought perhaps coming form the people downstairs

     deodorising their carpets or having their luxurious Coconuty Shower

     and it followed me like a Perfumed Puff Cloud around the house

     even in the evenings when we closed most windows and doors, etc.

 

 2) Yeast started to Spring from Practically Every Inch of my Body

     as if it was a Baking Loaf of Bread on the Rise!…

     and most of all,  my Scalp felt like a Maniacal Nursery

                     of Newly ‘hutched’ Yeast!…

    This caught my serious attention and put me on Alert!!

                        There was No Doubt

           Something was Wrong Somewhere

                        but what and where

        since there had been no change i could think of

                          – or was there…?

 

 3) The Foam in the Bathtub seemed to disappear quickly

     water turning ‘heavier’ much greasier looking than usual

            despite same amount of Shampoo Squirts.

 

          Then an accidental but Fortunate minor Spill

                      of the New Shampoo Pump 

   was the lucky incident and the clue that had evaded me

        and helped reveal the cause of the above nuisances

                   especially the Coconuty Smell:

 

  After i had wiped the Spill with my Finger, i did not wash it

   leaving any Shampoo residue on it as a Yeast deterrent.

Then within a few minutes i noticed that whenever my hand

came close to my face the Coconut smell seemed to intensify…

       …or rather … come straight from my FINGER!…

         So Overwhelmingly Strong for both my liking

               as well as my Poor Sensitive Lungs

that even the Coconuts themselves Rolled their eyes in disbelief…

   Malassezia Coconut Calamity 2 

My Old Regular Shampoo had a rather delicate Flowery fragrance

that lasted a few minutes while handling it but never intrusive 

when used to wash my hands etc – while the steam in the bath

         seems to have a blocking or obscuring effect

on both the delicate as well as the strong fragrance of the New one

        making it harder to detect and place it earlier.

 

        So, i deliberately sniffed the coated Finger repeatedly

             to make sure this was definitely the source

              that carried the same constant fragrance

which had been following me for the past few days.

           There was absolutely NO doubt that this was IT!…

           and the wafting Coconutty Smell all around me

      had been coming from my very Own Head and Body!

                

     I Cannot describe how Dismayed and Frustrated i was…

 

   Malassezia Coconut Calamity 3

 

I proceeded immediately to Check and Compare the List of Ingredients

    in both Old  and New Shampoo Containers for any listed changes.
