What they Reveal Under Biological Microscope *
Single Hair strand with Hyphen attached
I pulled several Hair strands from my head
and All of them invariably had odd shaped Particles
and Hyphae attached to them as in the photo above.
The Good news: Surprisingly All of them Dead and Empty.
Surprising because since i discontinued the suspected
‘Head and Shoulders’ Shampoo Formula i was using
i have not found yet an effective replacement
and this has caused me a seriously gritty Problem.
Acidophilus treatment would solve the problem in a short time
but i have refrained using it from Fear of Relocation to my Eyes
or Re-invading my Privates area just as i have it back Perfectly Clear
I also pulled a few hair strands from my Legs – a totally Lesion Free area.
All of them too had Hyphae around them and attached Particles
as shown above – again the Hyphae All Dead and Empty.
I have deliberately Not been using any Preventative measures there
as it is a less painful area, non debilitating and easier to treat
if i feel Malassezia ‘time to clone’ signs and attempts to settle
than it is in other more sensitive and inaccessible areas.
Above Leg Hair strand with attached Particles
and a detached Long Hyphen also with odd shaped Particles
I suspect it is its Orange Liquid (Biofilm) as it is drying out
A Clump of Pubic Hair

Both Reveal Perfectly Clean – Malassezia Free Strands

** All Strands Examined Appeared Malassezia Free **
No Hyphae, No Particles attached Nor Anything else
identifiable as Malassezia Part or Stage.
This is not Surprising in the least
because i Treat the Entire area with Acidophilus Mix
Several times a Day and Throughout the Night
whenever i get up for the Bathroom.
I must Clarify an Important Point:
The area is Not Malassezia ‘Traffic’ Free.
It Emerges from Both Vaginal and Rectal areas at different times
attempts to settle -even in the Presence of Acidophilus-
usually unsuccessfully or avoids and disperses to other areas
and Returns when it is its -Cloning?- Time.
Whenever it follows its instinct blindly persisting to settle , it perishes.
Acidophilus kills it slowly within a day or two
if there is Adequate Refreshed Treatment.
The Frequent Acidophilus Treatment keeping the area Free
from Lesions, Bumps, Itching and most importantly Cloning.
The Volume and Frequency of Traffich through, though is a separate issue
and depends on other Elements such as detailed in previous Entries.
