*Malassezia ~ Dealing with Chronic Blepharitis (PT2)*
To Read PT1 :
Latest Solutions Implemented for Clearing Blepharitis
During the latest Occurrence, having underestimated the Need to act
immediately and decisively, i tried applying several solutions haphazardly
which naturally did not produce a satisfactory lasting result
so eventually i had to implement a Coordinated – Concentrated Plan
which, Out of Necessity, Included Brief use of Chemical Solutions
1) Only IF/when Absolutely Necessary
Available at Chemists (Australia)
(Google for List of Ingredients)
It is a Head Lice treatment i have used for the Scalp before
from where the Yeast usually Relocates to the Eyes for Moisture
which contains OILS -Bad and Counter productive for fighting Yeast
but it is the only one which seems to affect Clones (and Lice eggs)
due to containing Butoxide – and allows a couple of days of peace
before the cycle starts to build again, giving the opportunity
for intensive Eye Treatment without too much interruption from the scalp.
No good using frequently
for several reasons i have already outlined
in several of my Entries in regards to
a) Chemicals and Oils, and
b) Relocation from Scalp to Eye Problem itself.
2) This I have been using Regularly
-Still on a Trial basis-
It seems to help the Eye Problem – temporarily
Contains 2% Zinc Pyrithione
Available at Coles and Woolworths (Australia)
I use it ONLY Under the Lash Beds
because it stings massively if it goes into the eye.
It seems to kill or sent away any Yeast lurking
On or Under the Skin in that area and prevents it from moving in
and settling into the Eyelash beds when it has matured.
If present in the area when shampoo is applied
initially there is no Response but soon as it starts to Die
it stings and itches rather strongly for just a few intense minutes
then all quiet.
When area is Free of Presence there is No response.
This is a good indication of Presence or Absence near the Eyes
but of course
there IS already presence in Eyes, Eyelashes, Eyelash beds
where it cannot be applied either for testing or treatment.
(I use it on the Scalp but it is only effective for what is Live
and on the Surface or Hair, often causing immediate mobilisation
out of the area and totally useless for spores or anything residing
deep in the hair follicles – so i am looking for replacement…)
3) The Most Effective of All – also Temporarily
Prescription Free Topical Antibiotic
(Google for List of Ingredients)
Available at Chemists’
I get from ‘Pharmacy Online’ (Australia)
What it is
Initially thought as a Puny little expensive Bottle – but it goes a long way!
Especially if used the way i found more productive for the purpose
How I Used it
I tried the instructions for a few days but had no effect whatsoever
so i stopped. Then i realised i had not given the entire treatment
enough time to bring results and created my own Targeted Plan.
Instead of putting a few drops inside the eye – which also sting briefly,
I directed the Nozzle Only Along the Lash bed and squeezed
very gently to release just the necessary amount
– and only in that area
This at bed times just before turning the light off. Keeps it working all night.
Deters Infestation on the Lash beds and Clears the already present mess!
Three to Four Nights application eased the swelling and weeping
and deterred more from trying to settle in the area
It is the most effective for a bad Chronic – Entrenched case
and mine left untreated was progressively getting there.
As soon as inflammation and swelling subsided – within a week,
i Stopped and Reverted to Frequent
– Warm Water Wash ( the 3 www,s lol!)
– Seawater (Natural Deterrent)
– Acidophilus Mix
Acidophilus Mix is Best Applied After the Inside the Eye Liquid
and Clouding of the Eyes has been Noticeably Reduced
and activity throughout the day has Subsided considerably.
Iy is Better Applied as part of a Routine Preventative Maintenance
rather that during Treatment because it upsets the Yeast
which creates a rather messy condition
before Acidophilus takes over delivering the Positive Results
Preventative Treatments I Use Regularly
1) Clean Eyelids with a Facecloth or Cotton wad and Warm/Hot Water
several times daily – Especially Morning, Bath Time and at Bedtime
2) Alternately, during Shower time, standing Facing the Shower Head
allowing plenty of comfortably Hot water run to the closed eyes
and wiping frequently with a Facecloth.
3) Dry with Face Cloth/Hand towel
(specifically allocated for drying the eyes after each wash)
4) Tissue or Toilet paper on my desk or wherever i am stationed
helps dry itchy liquid and gritty granules off the edges of the Eyes,
keep Eyelash beds Dry and interrupt Malassezia Settling
5) Apply Seawater (Not Salt water!)on Eyelids, around Eye
and Lash Beds Morning and Bedtime and /or
whenever i feel Malassezia movement or attempt to settle in
The Multi Benefits of Seawater:
– Cost Free and Abundantly available all year round
( For those Lucky to live by the Sea)
– Lasts almost indefinitely In or Out of the Fridge
– Not many ‘No Sea’ Creatures can Survive it
– Deters new Infestations
– Helps Heal wounds Faster
– Contains Bio-available Minerals that feed Eyelashes
making them grow Long, Luxurious in their Rich Natural Colour!
– Can easily be rubbed directly on the Eyelash beds for Best results
– Negligible brief discomfort – – – against
– Tremendous Benefits within a short time.
* Benefits Alternating Face Cloth with Cotton Wad /Ripple
– Tougher for Better Cleaning and Dislodging
Granules, Spores, Crusty or Oily Liquid, embedded Eyelid Shards
– Stays Hot longer can be Squeezed better
– Economic – can be made from old towels
–Speed e.g. if Work/ School mornings etc
– Hygiene and Convenience, i.e. Disposable – No need for wash,
– Reducing chances of Recontamination
Tissue or Toilet paper
I have learned to recognise sensations of when the devil is trying to lodge
into the lash beds such as Spider thread like movements or prickly and itchy
so i drop everything and go and wash immediately as above
During the rest of time when i feel them watery, leaky, or just itchy
i use toilet tissue* to wipe the lash beds and both edges of the eyes.
It is absorbent, disposable, goes a long way and the devil hates dry!
It Relieves the eye and potentially stops more irritation and additional growth.
I have a roll wherever i am sitting and do so as frequently as necessary.
* I buy specifically embossed type of tissue with Dolphin or Flower patterns
and Flatten the Rolls down, so they don’t look as much like ‘toilet’ rolls, lol!
and can go a long way with minimal cost compared to handkerchief tissues
but a Bulk Box of them can also do the job well.

Checking on New Readers Keywords today
i discovered this one below.
K * toilet tissue can cause blepharitis *
Reading the entire page above i am scratching my head
as to how or where could one have read
that Toilet Tissue can ‘cause’ pblepharitis’
when i am clearly stating the Opposite and have detailed
its Use and Purpose
in the Preventative Treatments and Benefits?
