* Ways to Reduce – Minimise Malassezia Yeast (PT3)*
*Topical External Care*
I have written Extensively about External Care in several Entries
and more Specifically and Detailed in the *Malassezia Blog* Entry:
Therefore here i will only cover areas where some recent changes
of additions and/or alternative methods have taken place.
Head and Scalp
The Best Results i have ever achieved are described in the Entry:
Eyes and Eyelash Beds
I Wash with warm water and Face Cloth and Dry well.
Then i Apply Aloe Vera Juice during the Day
and Seawater Eye Patch on Each Eye during the Night
I Clean well with Cotton Tip Morning and Night and Cover with Shampoo
during Bath time then Dry with Cotton Tip when i finish.
During the Day and especially Overnight if i feel Malassezia Presence
i use a dropper to fill each Ear with Acidophilus diluted in water
and seal with a small piece of cotton wool to keep it in.
Never had too much trouble with the Face, ironically my most Oily area.
I can often feel its presence, or some crawling or scrape some dried blobs.
When i clean it with Warm Water -or as some time back with YAM
on a Cotton Bud- it comes up very Yellow/Orange
obviously Malassezia layer spread all over but rarely any sores.
I have noticed when standing too close to our Food steamer
the Steam seems to mobilise it away...
a good little tip to know should it ever go naughty
but must always consider possibilities of Relocation…
I have only had two nasty incidents Under the Breast area throughout.
One on each side, on separate occasions
and both came up rather unexpectedly
during Night time while asleep
so i have been normally leaving the area completely Unprotected
This one i treated with Acidophilus water and took an entire week to heal
– not bad considering Lesions usually take near Four or more –
because Malassezia had settled in and had formed bubbles under the skin
–barely visible on photos– and due to itching and Inflammation
as both are attracting elements, it was much harder to prevent attempts
of more trying to settle in the area.
Once Acidophilus had done the ‘job’ and the bubbles 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
to keep the area Dry and deter any fresh attacks.
Buttocks, Pubic and Vagina
I wash thoroughly after Every Bathroom visit, dry well
and then Apply Acidophilus water.
It does not stop traffic In and Out of Internal areas
but the entire Outer Area is Absolutely Clean and Clear.
I have also introduced a trial run of Menstrual Pads
which Malassezia seemed to avoid only during the first 2 days
due to its moisture absorbing qualities
and i am now hooked to the convenience and dry feeling
immediately after having applied Acidophilus water
So in this Regard it is Great and very Convenient
because i can Treat the area Liberally and still feel Dry
and Acidophilus being a Live Creature knows where skin
and warmth is and travels there, instead of
-as i used to worry- sink at the bottom of the Pad.
Should this was happening the area would not be as clear
and i would be fighting diggings and lesions…
I used to wash the Vagina walls during Bath time
or prior to Inserting an Acidophilus Capsule
but i have now changed to a way that works much better.
I do not wash it Internally Unless and Only if /when i feel
Malassezia brazen invasion despite Acidophilus Presence
or of negligible chances to settle there.
I always worry it might travel upwards to the Uterus.
In these cases, fortunately very infrequent
i wash, and dry and insert a new Acidophilus capsule.
The rest of the time i only insert the Acidophilus 3 times daily
morning, noon, night and let it Saturate the area thoroughly!
Feet and Toes
I used to have a persistent problem with swollen feet back when able
to stand up a lot longer and do a lot more than recently.
Then i discovered that sitting in a Recliner Chair
thus able to keep my legs and feet raised
helped with better blood circulation
and all swelling and inflammation ceased and since then
there has been way less attraction for settling in the area.
I still apply Seawater or Acidophilus water for Prevention
but not ever trusting its Evil Nature
i always Protect thoroughly the Two Big Toes.
And a Bit about The Skin in its Entirety
I Like this So very Much and i Totally agree with it
It also Confirms the Benefits
of Pursuing the Natural against the Chemical
The Skin a Live Entity of its Own
Relies on Diet as a Main Contributor of Elements
that can Help Boost or Weaken its Health.
Live Nutrients are the Building Blocks of our Entire Body
Internal as well as External
And must Never be Overlook
Or come Second to Any other Treatment
Regarding Prescription Medications
From Personal Experience as well as Shared Visitor Communications
there is a certain number of hurdles to overcome in order
to be Diagnosed first and then -perhaps- if lucky, obtain a Prescription
1- Doctor Believing and Complying about Prescribing Diagnostic Tests
2- Prescription for the ‘Right Tests’ is not always guaranteed and doctors
have their own mind and guidelines as to what to look first
3- The Tests Producing a Right Diagnosis
4- The Tests even if the Right ones, Producing Conclusive Results
5- Co-Operative Dermatologist for Treatments etc
…Not kind issuing the ‘Delusional Parasitosis’ verdict.
6- Past successfully the last hurdle… one is faced with having to take
more Antibiotics… for – most likely – Only Temporary Results
and Risks involved with high dosages and/or Long term are required.
