Malassezia Furfur ~ Yeast or Mycelia

                   * Malassezia Furfur ~ Yeast or Mycelia *


       Malassezia Faecal yeast and Hyphae 1 MD

                                  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

Malassezia Mycelia Hyphae MD

                       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 *

Dirty Nails google image

        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.”

       Nails Google image

           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.
