* READERS’ QUESTIONS & KEYWORDS *
* Malassezia Furfur ~ Yeast or Mycelia *
K1: *what is the difference
between malassezia yeast and malassezia flur*
IF i understand Correctly
a) From Research material:
1) Either the Yeast does not always grow Hyphae
2) Researchers had difficulty inducing it to do so in the Lab
3) Yeast Form does not always develop Hyphae
(Click on Image to enlarge)
or b) From Microscope Observations of my Own Samples
when it does, they are much smaller than the Mycelial Type.
The Lesions also appear to be much smaller in size.
Below the Mycelial Hyphae are referred to
as ‘Short Fungal Hyphae’
I am not sure where they get that because looking at my Mycelia ones
They Look anything but Short
especially in comparison to the Yeast ones.
Of course not being a Microscope Professional
i must admit that i find it easier to differentiate
between the two types of Lesions
rather than the two types of Hyphae.
Having only observed my own samples
I can still not be sure whether the differences i see
between the quantities and sizes of the Hyphae and Lesions
of the Initial stages of outbreak and the current ones
are due to a difference of Yeast and Mycelia
as two different stages of Malassezia development
a) An Improvement of my Skin Immunity
b) A Reduction of Presence and Size and
c) Inability of the Yeast to Develop to previous extensive levels
due to the Methods and Applications i have implemented
targeting Both Topical and General Immunity Improvement
and Inhibition of a Complete Malassezia Cycle
Not excluding of course the Possibility
of other contributing Factors i may not be aware of.
K2: * fingernails turning dark from demodex *
I m not sure if Demodex causes finger nails to turn dark
but i know this is a sure Malassezia sign.
It turns gray when its liquid carrier /Biofilm dries out
and it is then harder to clean or wash off.
Some time back i used to apply Oil Free Neutrogena
but nowadays handling the Acidophilus mix
when applying it to other areas of my Body
does not allow any built up under the nails.
If i had to treat it now i would dip my fingers/nails
in Acidophilus Mix several times during the day
and particularly at Bed time
because of the additional benefits instead of Neutrogena.
The photo displayed above is a Google image
and may or may not
have anything to do with Malassezia.
I do not have any Personal ones
with enough gray accumulation to be photographed
Below is another Google image i picked
displaying the nails of a person
believing them to be dirty from work
despite -to their admitting- trying to clean them
“with a cotton swap and alcohol
– and that only worked to a certain extent.
They still aren’t clean looking.”
To me it looks like accumulation of Malassezia gray
and progression to white grit (trouble brewing!)
The fact that it can be visible to the eye
and be photographed as well, indicates a serious case.
The person is highly preoccupied with the look of the nails
in regards to Nail Polish ‘Beauty’
and Totally Unaware of the lurking beast…
I cringe thinking what they would reveal
looked under digital microscope
when even perfectly healthy looking nails
can reveal being heavily infested.
( Photo examples of my Nails
comparing View with Naked Eye
against Revealing under Microscope ones
are posted in Related Earlier Entries.)
K3: * how to kill malassezia from inside *
I have not discovered anything yet
that would kill Malassezia Internally as such
and i am not sure whether there would be anything
that would not be simultaneously too dangerous
for the Body as well
so i have turned my efforts and attention
into Building General Internal – External Immunity.
