Personal Experience, Reader Correspondence and Forum Browsing

over 5 years have shaped My Personal View as it stands currently

but always open and ready to change If/when new Facts arise:.

                   K3- * morgellons organism *

Morgellons is Not an Organism

It is a Condition – a Bundle of Symptoms.

Malassezia on the other hand IS an Organism

         And so is Demodex.


1) A Variety of Symptoms are Not Uniquely ascribed

    or caused by either Malassezia or Morgellons.

Many are caused by various other organisms or conditions.

2) Malassezia is Medically Recognised and Detectable

                      and so is Demodex

    Morgellons is Neither – at least not so far.

         (Delusional Parasitosis is the easiest diagnosis 

          for our ‘Professionals’ and Not only for Morgellons.)

 3) Morgellons majority of Symptoms are either

     Indistinguishable or Identical to Malassezia’ s

 4) Both Malassezia and Morgellons are difficult to Identify

                        and /or verify due to

Medicos Ignorance, Resistance or Acceptance and cooperation

   regarding Perseverance with Right Testing



Being Viewed as a Natural Part of Body Flora

   and Failure to recognise or adequately evaluate

   the severity of its effects as a Pathogen

Difficulty obtaining evaluation and prescription for Right Tests

Difficulty in Collecting and (methods of) Culturing in Labs

Reluctance due to Temporary Results

   of Long term Treatments  and associated Side Effects

Symptoms Fragmented and Categorised as Isolated conditions

   such as Seborrheic Dermatitis, Ptirosporum, Folliculitis, etc



Due to Lack of Detectable Cause

Outright Rejection and Classification of Symptoms

   as Delusional Parasitosis or similar terms.


          Malassezia and Morgellons

Both easy classification and dismissal

   as Delusional Parasitosis  often before

   proper tests are carried out – if at all

Many of the Symptoms

   May or may Not be caused by either

   Malassezia, Morgellons or Demodex

– Morgellons May or may Not be caused by an Organism.

There is Speculation by the Morgellons believer/followers 

that there may be a correlation between Myiasis and Morgellons

but a cause has not been officially established yet.

( Myiasis is caused by Tropical Fly Larva (maggot) in human tissue )

 More than one would want to know can be found here:

Myiasis NCBI

              Or a very quick reference here:

             Myiasis CDC


My Personal View  as things stand Currently

       Some Symptoms are due to

a) Various, Unrelated, to either Malassezia or Morgellons, causes

b) Some Malassezia Symptoms are mistaken for Morgellons


And for the Future (hopefully)

Science may eventually bring to light

        Whether Morgellons

a) Is a Condition in its Own Right

b) What its True cause is

c) Which of the Symptoms ascribed to it, are

– Directly attributed to it

– Which are Indirectly connected to it, and

Which are due to various other causes.


     Until then, we are all left to deal on our own 

and with our own opinions, assessments, speculations,   

inclinations and a myriad of unanswered questions.

        This stands true for Malassezia as well.

In the end and for the time being, names and classifications

                 do not matter as much as

   Treatments that can offer Relief and some Control

             that allows living a Reasonable life.

         K1:  * demodex or morgellons * 


   If the Question is in regards to the Appearance of the ‘Creature’

     only a Microscope or a Lab Test can tells which one it is .

    The question confronted with of course

    is who/what determines what the Morgellons ‘Creature’ looks like…


    If the question is in regards to Symptoms then the problem

    is even more complicated, because from my own frantic research

    way back when trying to determine what my own 

    tormenting ‘Creature’ was, the symptoms available,  

          jumbled up and as confusing as anything

             were as similar as could be described

    and to this day i still wonder if they are correctly ascribed

    and attributed to each case,  so … i will keep hands off this one.              

    If one is serious, since the Demodex is medically recognised

    and can be detected, one can either request a lab test 

    or purchase a Microscope and start viewing their own samples.

   There are many photos of Demodex on Google Images to compare

   and below is the only one we think we caught some way back.

Demodex Comparison MD

Left Top one is Our Sample the others are Google Comparisons


K2:  *morgellons vs scabies*  

      I believe the abbreviation ‘vs’ here is used as ‘comparison’

            rather as ‘against, opposed, contrasted’, etc

         in which case pretty much All of the above apply here too.


  K3:  * difference between demodex mites and malassezia *

           The same as K1 and K2 


        K4:  *morgellons under microscope*  

    A Typical ‘Mala-gellons’ case?

     I remember back when i had thought initially we had Lice,

then Scabies, then Demodex and then i had seen and compared

some of the Top Row Photos (below) with the ones all over my Body

     and was convinced for a little while that i had Morgellons,

              until i visited Forums and did some Research.


                                 Below (Top Row)

      A small sample of Comparison Photos of Morgellons

                      with Some of Mine (Bottom Row)

 Malassezia - Malagellons ComparisonMD

1)The Lesions- 2)The Cheesy Centers in them- 3)The Scratch Lines

     ( and  the Thumb Nails (Top 3) are also heavily Infected.)

4) I had seen these fibre like threads in the Digital Microscope

   but had dismissed them as possible hairlike fibres

    from the air / dust / towels, environment or items i had touched

  so i did not bother taking any photos.

   That until i saw them in Google as Morgellons fibres…

   and later on ( Nr 4 Bottom Row ) as Malassezia Google image

           and i knew they had been Malassezia Hyphae

              as they appeared under Digital Microscope

of a lesser magnification and clarity compared to the Biological one.

     So!… i see it as a Mala-gellons under Microscope!…


               Incidentally… Nr 4 Bottom Row G/Image

             looks very much like the Recently Published

               ‘Beaded’ hyphae  Ones of mine…

Malassezia and G-Images Comparison

                                  (Click on  photo to enlarge)


  K5:  * morgellons in intestines *  

                           Another Mala-gellons?…

          I have already written about Malassezia in the intestines

                                in various of my entries.

             If Enemas help Temporarily Relieve Congestion

                       in the Lower and Transverse Colon

             perhaps the same might apply to Mala-gellons?…

   Enemas for mala-gellons


     K6:  * morgellons hair follicles hairs *  

                I am guessing this means

             ‘morgellons hair follicles – hairs ‘

           i.e. Hair/Fibre/Hyphae in Hair Follicles?

Malassezia Infected Hair Follicles

     Some Infected Hair Follicles looked under Digital Microscope

can appear Monstrously Alien with strange Fibres sprouting out of them

  but they are just normal hairs … not seen under microscope before!

     Of course i am unable to evaluate what the Reader has seen

or a photo of their observation and i am only guessing what they may mean.

                            ( For Colour Malassezia Filaments 

        See in  Photos Section here – and in  * Malassezia Blog * )


K7:  * what are the big blobs forming in my legs from morgellons*  

                         Speaking in Malassezia terms

             it sounds like the Blob like particles

are semi-Solidified stage Malassezia

                soon to develop Hyphae, Dig-in and start Cloning…

    Malassezia Blobs

(Semi-Solidified Ear Blobs)


K8:  * yeast infection and morgellons *  

             Hmm! …what shall i make of this one?..

                 ‘Yeast Infection AND Morgellons’

                       Would the Reader  mean

            “Comparison” of Yeast infection and Morgellons?

                      It sounds very much like it.

               I just hope i have presented enough material

       to show they are Both as Alike as Twins rather than Different

       in many respects, such as Symptoms as well as Appearance


  And if they Are… then i could say with Certainty…(below)


   K9:  * sesame oil for morgellons *  

       NO! … Sesame Oil -or ANY OIL– would NOT DO Good!


    K10:  * morgellons yeast *  

 I like the term, seems to Incorporate Both… ‘Morgs and Sezia’, Lol

       B G D

     Should it have been named  …Morgssezia?… or Malagellons?

Malassezia: Diary Photos of Innocent Times (PT1)


   * (Pre Malassezia) – Diary  *

      * Photos of Innocent Times Entries *

      Malassezia Diary MD


  * In the Beginning … It was Not!…  *


     PART 1    

      Scabies War  

According to the Blogger Statistics Records I created my First Blog

sometime in May 2009 under the Alias ‘Sonatas Story’

The story though had really started somewhere middle February

but there were Neither a Diary nor any Entries of any sort

because i believed i had caught Fleas at the Local Pool

from the School kids – being hot during that time of year-

and was sure i could get rid of them within a couple of days.


As the case got progressively worse and utterly mystifying

forcing me into complex … ‘creative solutions’

and need to record progress – while still retaining an optimistic outlook

i judged a little Book would be good enough for recording it all

innocently thinking  ‘It will do! … won’t be for long anyway…’


Here is the Little Book, up and until something Bigger was needed!


These Entries have never been Published before

and i intend to present them ‘Raw’ and unmodified

exactly as they were entered at the time just for my own view

but the Readers can gain some insight and have Fun too 🙂


They are the proverbial ‘Photos Worth a Thousand Words’

in showing the stages of Innocent Ignorance,

Plunging form Optimism to Utter Despair, Frustration,

Temporary Disillusionment and often Explosive Anger

in Alternating Rounds in the Mercy of Unfolding Circumstances.

                         Why am i doing So?…

Because i believe it will help Illustrate the Lengths gone through,

the Emotional Roller-Coasters and Instil some Hope into any Souls

that might be Fighting -or worse- Sinking into Depths of Despair …


          I will Skip any Boring Repetitive Pages

or take Photos of some ‘Interesting’ Parts in a Page

    So here it goes!

* * *


                     No!… they are not Lice


                  … they must be Scabies!…


Scabies War MD


A Sample of initial Natural ‘Home-made Remedies’

Scabies War1MD  

You are Allowed to Laugh Out… Loud! 🙂

           I Laugh too seeing it but i really want to cry.

   Surprisingly the Rice one worked!

     It Sealed Dry the area and whatever lurking there

      met its untimely destiny but was messy, hard to wash off

      and like anything else … to this day … more kept coming…


   Morning … Noon …. Night….

Scabies War2MD

*Please don’t take notice of any… ‘Mifspellinfs’… i was a desperate girl!

       Applied Eucalyptus OIL … did I Say??? 

  And… Applied some More …. Did I?…

  and Again and Again?… Hit with hammer

Scabies War3MD

  ( If Only I had known back then!… 😦 )


   Hell’s Rotating Wheel…

By that stage i had Noticed a 3-4 1/2 day Operation Cycle of the ‘Creature’

and on Left side of Diary attempting to guess and record the ‘where’ in it 

and the level of its activity during Morning, Noon, Evening, Night.

On the far Right Abbreviated Ingredients and Treatments used.

And in the Glorious Middle the Horrors of Cyclical Manifestations

with a Bit – or a Lot of – Hope, Frustration, Desperation …  

      or -to quote the titles of a series i have never watched- of

        downright…   ‘Murder She Wrote!’ …

       expressed in Indelicate language … ‘For Her Eyes Only’ 

Scabies War4-1MD

Of Note: The word ‘Relocation’ was starting to dawn

Scabies War4-3MD

                          “I may have Dislodged them from my Ear”

                                  How Very Intuitive… of me!

                       The word ‘Relocation’ was starting to dawn

                          but took a long, long time to truly sink in

and its practical implications.


Tormented Sleepless Nights and Feverish Activity

     Scabies War4-4MD

      I had given names to what i now know 

as stages of development of the same creature.

  Runners, Crawlers, Diggers, etc…


The Enforced Sweat and Heat Treatment

Scabies War4-5

 I have described in detail the Sweat and Heat treatments

     in the *Malassezia Blog* entry “Lethal strategies of the Past 


    Morning – Noon – Evening – Night

Scabies War4-2MD

Actually ‘Bloody Hell Day 1’ is really Day 3 or 4.

Day 1 is now discovered and established as the Quiet one

counting the Blessing of the Temporary Lull

as well as the ticking hours to stages Day 2 – Day 3 … etc


   Deceptive Thrills!…

Scabies War5MD

Did it Really???… Why don’t we wait until Evening, hey?…

Scabies War5-1MD

  Would that be the now Known Re-inviting effect of the emollients

   in the Scabiecide, combined with the Day 2-3 hell braking loose? …


    Some Light at the end of the Tunnel???

Scabies War5-2MD

                      … Or Simply a Mirage in an Endless Desert?

Malassezia-Morgellons-Demodex-Poll Category

                       * POLLS *


                      Malassezia Polls

   * Malassezia-Malagellons-Demodex- New Poll Category *


   29 Dec 13

My Sincere Apologies to the few who have made the effort

              to Participate in the Poll in the Entry:

      – Malassezia ~ New Discoveries–Photos–Confirmations(9)

 Being unfamiliar with the site i noticed a couple of things

    about the way the Voting Results were presented:


1) The Questions do not remain in an orderly relevant order

     but get scrambled up according to the number of votes.

     Nothing much to be done about this but not important


2) There is No Clear Indication as to How many people

     with Malassezia had symptoms appearing After Medications

     or How many with Morgellons, Demodex or Other (Scabies, Lice etc)

     or How many in Each category are Currently on Antibiotics and so on.


I realise this was due to grouping them together.


My Intention had been to create a special POLLS Category

but due to Sparse Participation and a previously highly disappointing

observation of either total disinterest and / or reluctance to vote

i tried this time a) to make it more Convenient for the Reader

and b) wait for better signs of Interest and Participation.


Of course the Bundled up results make the Poll useless

therefore in order for All of us to have a Clearer View and Derived Benefit

from this effort i decided to Separate the Groups

and attempting the Creation of an All New POLLS Category 

so that Each Individual can fill the questionnaire

that applies to their particular case

and Observe what parts are common and shared with others.


My Many Thanks to those who have already Voted

                  And Welcome to Vote again!

    and Those who might be prepared to do so!


     In Return and for the Benefit of All Readers

         I have deliberately chosen the Option

      of Allowing the Viewing of Voting Results

           in Each Category as will be added

          * * *

Malassezia ‘New Discoveries–Photos’ Series 2- (PT1)




*Malassezia ‘New Discoveries–Photos’ Follow Up (PT2)*

  “Microscope Samples – A Few Weeks Later” 


     PART 1

    ‘Disintegration of the initial Ear Blobs’

Malassezia Blobs

Fatty Gel like Particles under Digital Microscope



 Above is a Photo of two Blobs collected from one Ear

               as Initially Viewed under Digital Microscope

                     and details described in Entry:

             Malassezia ~ New Discoveries–Photos–Confirmations(2)


Below are the Same Blobs as viewed under Biological Microscope

EarBlob under BM

Fatty Particle under Biological Microscope 1- Fatty Particle – 2 – Hyphae Developing

 After Viewing and Photographing the Samples

   i left them on the slide in the same position

                     for further viewing at a later stage.


    On the Second Viewing, part of the gel had dried out

and some filaments pictured above were isolated.

    Some Red filled with freshly drawn blood  

   and some Grayish disintegrating

Malassezia Filaments

Malassezia Filaments 1- Red 2- Gray disintegrating


as seen above and in Entry    

Malassezia ~ New Discoveries–Photos–Confirmations(4)


On the 7/12/13 i looked again before intending to remove the slide.

   Now i could only see a very Long Filament 

 so long i could only focus the lenses on a small part at a time.

   It looked completely Black, shrivelled, burned – dead dry!

Malassezia Disintegrating Filament 1 MD

 The arrows indicate the extensive length of the Filament out of focus.

Bewildered by the fact that no gel was visible

         i scrolled a little in each direction and discovered

                     this very long filament, also naked, black and dry.


Malassezia Disintegrating Filament 2 MD

                 It appears as though inside the protective wrap of the gel

                 the Filaments kept growing for a while

   or the thickness of the gel prevented clear view

                          although i believe the former is more likely

               because i remember slight but visible sample augmentation

              observed in the past when Microscope had been purchased.

Malassezia – Morgellons – Quick GG – Search



Mala-gellons F


  * Malassezia – Morgellons – QUICK Google – Search *


   * Who is Who … and Who is What?…  *
       The Funny Side                                                                                     

          Q:   “who is the malassezia fungus”

Q: Is this a Question as in ‘who?’ is the malassezia fungus 

               or a Statement as in

       Malagellons who

         ‘Who’… IS…  … the Malassezia fungus’


  ‘Dr Who’ fans -My Man included!- will despise my warped sense of humour  

  There are a lot of ‘Who?’ type of questions that come up when dealing with

  the Malassezia counterpart of Morgellons – No offence meant in any direction.


                    Q2: “ Who?  is the Morgellons   Disease then?…”

Mala-gellons hy

      A: Well… they all have their secret Identities and we will never know


   The Serious Side:

I’ m guessing the Reader comes from a Non-English speaking country

trying to find information about Malassezia Fungus.

Hopefully this site may provide them with some Helpful answers


Q: “the truth about Malassezia

YES!… this is what we All want!

“ The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing but the Truth

    about Malassezia.

My Personal Oath of Truth on my (Malassezia) … Diary!

    Malassezia Treatments Diary1 MD 


I am sure Many People also want to find the Truth about Morgellons 

    The same Book above will do for Morgellons, Demodex or Scabies

since all took turns initially as my ‘possible’ diagnosis,

based on my symptoms and discussion forums research

until i was Lucky to have a photo sample identified for me

         as Malassezia by a Professional in the field

               as detailed in my *Malassezia Blog*

and confirmed by Numerous samples thereafter by Laboratory photos

          after my – i confess – initial confusion and scepticism

since i had never heard of a Malassezia term or affliction before. 


Been grateful to the Universe and the Helpful Gentleman

           for steering me in the right direction,

i decided and earnestly took upon myself to share

        my Diary, Findings and Experiences

with other people suffering similar symptoms.


Piece by Piece more and more has come to light

      both at Home and those of many others

      -as well as at the Research Laboratories

but for the ‘Whole  Truth’ … don’t know whether it will be found

                   any time soon for many of us…


I believe we are aslo faced with a Very Confusing Wide List

of Similar – if not Identical – Symptoms and Photos:

 Malassezia Comparison 2

  Malassezia or  Morgellons 

(Readers’ Search Keywords)

* cuticles infected with morgellons

* malassezia yeast nail

* hair and nail parasite morgellon

* morgellons hair follicles hairs

* morgellons in intestines

    Judging by the Frequently used Keywords by the Readers

    i can see a  Hybrid situation and a problem of Identification

     i.e Who does the Identification of those Photos/Symptoms

                             and Who Names them 

            (is it ‘Dr  Who‘ …Lol!…)


 Following the advice and suggestion of a Regular Reader

that my Entries could help many Morgellons people

  i have decided to do just that – provided it is clarified and accepted


a) I am Not a Qualified Practitioner

    and cannot offer Medical Advice or any advice for that matter

    other than that of a well-intentioned individual 

    and  from the Basis of Sharing my Personal Diary as in Malassezia.


b) That i am not Obliged to Follow and Refer to any Symptoms

    by the ‘given’ Name of ‘Morgellons’ disease or syndrome

  which is based on Mary Leitao’s choice

  at the time of her personal research and seeking for answers.

                                   (Feeling Nonetheless

    Respectful Sympathy and Understanding to Her Plight and Fight)


      Therefore i will be using Readers Questions and Keywords and

-until Science has allocated Morgellons official Medical Reference Name-

                    i will be referring and treating them

                       as ‘Common Symptoms Cases’

              * * *
