Burn Under Breast
I have Only had two nasty Under Breast incidents
over the past 5 years
– both occurring during Night time while asleep.
One on each side, on separate occasions
and both came up rather unexpectedly
so i have been normally leaving the area completely Unprotected
Below The Top Photos show the latest incident
Nasty Red Burn
Surrounded by the Sticky Orange turned Dry and Brown
The Bottom ones show the Area as is Currently – well Healed
This i treated with Acidophilus water and it took an entire week to heal
-Not bad considering Lesions usually take near Four or more.
This is because Malassezia had settled well in
and formed Blisters under the skin –barely visible on photos–
and due to itching and Inflammation – both attracting elements-
it made it much harder to prevent attempts
of more trying to settle in the area.
Once Acidophilus had done the ‘job’ and the blisters had dried up
i continued applying Acidophilus in the Morning
and Talcum Powder at Night until completely healed and safe
Now i only apply Talcum Powder morning and night
– for a little while until i am sure it is safe to stop –
to keep the area Dry and deter any fresh attacks.
The Long Toe Story
This Toe has had an Over a Decade Long Story of Malassezia attacks
before i even had the slightest idea what it was.
It lost its entire Nail several times and people were telling me
to have it pulled out but i did not believe in Punishing the Toe
for what it was been done to it
so i nursed it back to health several times
only to lose it repeatedly, often just a day or two
before ready to declaring it as Absolutely Perfect!…
The Doc had said it was Onichomycosis but i was not convinced.
(different fungal creatures and behaviour.)
I had a gut feeling it was some other devil
and was right as discovered many years later.
It used to start throbbing and getting a red hot swelling
just after 6 pm every evening
then filled up with pus, losing the nail yet again within a day or two.
Numerous greasy creams i was using for healing
had not help and rather exacerbated the situation.
It only started getting a break for months at a time
once i had finally stopped them all
but has always remained ‘attractively’ vulnerable to attacks
and the Battle has been on going … for ever…
So, at night i wrap Both Big Toes in a Cotton wad
with either Seawater or Acidophilus water
and cover with Elastoplast rigid tape.
Malassezia can still go under it
And it does, since … it can still ‘Breath’ lol!
but it thinks twice before it settles in an environment
that does not sense it as ‘naturally’ confined
like some folds of the skin etc
not to mention it would have to survive the Acidophilus presence.
The other Toes i just Splash with Seawater
and keep my fingers crossed
since they are easier to treat if anything goes wrong.
A Cheesy Toe, on the Outside is Painful
Tedious to Clear and Heal and Requires Digging out
but Not as Bad as when Inside in either Side of theToe Nail
which is extremely Painful and not always Accessible
and can only be dealt with the Peroxide Torture!
Should it happen:
I would start with Saturating the Toe with Seawater for 48 hours
if this does not work i would try the same with Methylated Spirits 2%
– Not ‘Rubbing Alcohol’ as it is too weak and does not work-
if this did not work either, then i know not of any other choice
than the Peroxide…
It does not require any saturation – just a splash, which froths
stays deceptively quiet for a few moments and then…
… it acts like a medieval torture or operation without anaesthetic…
and goes On and On for hours …
till all drops dead … including the patient, Lol!
Admittedly, i have not had a chance to trial
wetting the entire Toe with Acidophilus water
then empty and paste on an Acidophilus capsule
and wrap it up with an Acidophilus water Cotton wad
and protective rigid Plaster to keep it enclosed and in place.
Hopefully i will never Need to trial this option
but should the demon manage to get in there after all
i would certainly try it before the Peroxide
or in fact of any other item mentioned above
even if it might mean taking an extra -Painless!- day or two.
This is what i have to do Nightly to Keep a Healed Toe Safe
How it looked some time back after an ugly attack.
Some Acidophilus Capsule’s contents
pasted on the vulnerable side
where Malassezia Sinks in – if not prevented-
and starts its Evil and Very Painful work.
