* Malassezia: Which? … Where?… and …The Invisible! *
The Condition of Malassezia Symptoms is Referred to
as ‘Pityrosporum Folliculitis’ – ‘Seborrheic Dermatitis’ etc
Although the Dermatologists prefer to call it…
‘Delusional Parasitosis’ or ‘Parasitophobia’
as well as other Disguised variations
carrying the same ‘hint’ as the above…
which Translates to: ‘Its All in your Mind’
Fortunately the Medical Researchers have advanced past
this fixated and highly embarrassing for the Profession ignorance
providing evidence that it Is actually a ‘Creature’ after all
and … Materialises … on the Body – and Not the Mind!
Tongue in Cheek aside… there is still a little hindering problem …
How Much of the Body
… is actually considered as ‘existing’ and as part
of the field to be examined by those Researching
the Relationship of Body and Manifestation of Malassezia Symptoms.
This appears to be a mighty good effort but does it go far enough?
(Click on Photo to enlarge)
Chest, Mid line Back, Scalp, Ear, Upper Back, Upper Thigh and Cheeks (= 7)
Which ones could be the 13 other sites missing mention in the list above?
If i were to guess the most probable sites been checked i would add:
Forehead?- Eyelashes?- Nose?- Neck?- Arms?-Fingers?
Finger Nails?-Chest?- Belly?- Legs?-Feet?-Toes?-Toe nails? (=13+7=20)
It would be interesting to know the sites examined
rather than trying guessing them
Even if these sites were added to the List above
it would still leave out
Hair? Nostrils? Lips? Buttocks?-Legs?
Feet upper/heels/sole?-Toes-Toe Nails?
Some of these may be among the ones checked instead of my suggested
but it nevertheless leaves out many sites unchecked
And what about….
Vaginosaurus?-Analosaurus?- Penis-PurpleoSporum? and IntestinoSporum?
Are these … the Invisible ‘Dinosaurs’ in the Research Room?
considering that the same Symptoms are also afflicting the ‘unmentionable’ parts
of our bodies where the same Rich Follicular environment is naturally provided
and even Richer in many other respects in the Intestinal Canal – and manifesting
on the outside as Itchy, Burning, Purple Bumps, Lesions, Paper Cut lines? etc.
I have not come across any research yet mentioning these areas at all.
All the ones i have read refer to manifestation of Malassezia symptoms
i.e ‘Pityrosporum Folliculitis’/‘Seborrheic Dermatitis’/Tinea Versicolour, etc.
usually Concentrating on the Upper part of the Body
as if the Lower does not exist or it is off limits…
I wonder if adequate research has been done on samples from these vital sites
from where Malassezia Emerges, Returns to, and habitually and stubbornly
Settles and Clings on in the Surrounding areas, especially the closest ones
such as the Vulva, Anus and Inner Richly Follicular Buttocks
as if for its Dear Life … and Inevitably its Evil Purposes… because
Its Persistent Clinging there
Is Not Haphazard or Accidental
but a Strong Instinctual Urge and Directive
despite these areas often Rendered
by different Treatment applications
Inhospitable to its Survival and Completion of Cycle.
Hopefully one day the Penny may drop and Prompt
‘The Research Field’ to turn the Light of its Attention
on these most important yet -apparently so far- neglected areas.
In the mean time I will keep searching and hoping
and who knows
‘Knock and Thy Shall Find’ may prove true …if i am still around…
Well… well!… what do you know…Lol!…
It seems my hopes and prayers were answered faster than i had anticipated 🙂
Some time back when i had Googled Malassezia and Vaginal Penis problems
i had only found a relevant Link where the document concluded
that samples from the Penis did not contain any Malassezia
and the Vaginal one turned out referring to Candida Yeasts.
No Malassezia on Penis? …“Yeah?… on what Planet?”…
Subsequent ones did not yield any better result in either Male or Female areas
and as for Malassezia and Intestines…
most of the links lead to my Own Blogs
of which the contents and findings i knew well
but wanted to find out any Lab ones….
Perhaps it had more to do with my developing Searching Keyword skills
that did not lead me to the right links but i shall never know.
So just before clicking ‘Publish’ -this Entry- a little wise voice inside my head
‘Why don’t you try Googling’ Malassezia and Penis /Vagina’ one more time
just in case there is something more recent – so i Did and Voila!…
Malassezia in the Vagina area is described in one site as ‘Superficial Infection’
Superficial??? … i Wish!….
Mind you nothing much more than that in regards to links and findings
-Could be my Googling skills again, Lol!- but at least it appears
the Body areas have been Discovered
and some of the ‘Dinosaurs’ are becoming Visible!
Reading the article above about the abundance of not just Malassezia Species
but the many other types of Yeasts in Both V and P areas,
it makes me think my referral -at times of high frustration and strain-
of my V being the ‘Cauldron of Hell’ may have sounded rude to some
but now i think the name can be well-deserved – when things go wrong.
As for the P i have just lost my innocent regard of it and inclined
to see it as a Potential ‘Lethal Weapon’ … as much as its… Sister V.
A quick read of the complete article above can be adequately convincing.
The Reality is they are All Part of our Bodies and all is well and perhaps
there is some purpose to their presence as long as things run smoothly…
After all. the Naming is not important
as much as Discovering and Establishing the areas of Affliction
and Available Solutions to when/where they become a Problem.
So where to from here?…
I absolutely agree with this statement – Yeasts may have some Purpose
but I can say that for me it is too late and near impossible to achieve
Complete Normal Balance due to my Multiple Health Problems
that thwart and inhibit the best possible approaches to arrive there
but a Younger or a Healthier person without a serious Illness
i believe there is a good possibility
–IF willing to sacrifice a lot and implement a Healthier life style
and pursue a Strict Maintenance regiment – as described in my Entries
there is more than a good chance – fragile and temporary as it might be
to Revert to a Normal or near Normal Level and Balance of Presence
