         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…

                                  (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?

 “Microscope Samples – A Few Weeks Later” 

  

     PART 2

    ‘Dry Orange Scrapings Under Microscope

         Malassezia Orange Rim

 

    When the ‘Does Yellow/Orange/Green-turns Gray when dead’ experiment

     was completed, i emptied the water and was about to discard the Container

Then i thought:    ‘Why not let it Dry out and see what happens

a) With the Colour when there has been No water in it, and

b) Look at it under the Microscopes to see if there is anything in it.’

 

      During the Experiment while there was frequently water in the container

the Colour remained Orange and bright with only a slight hue of dullness

 Malassezia ~ New Discoveries–Photos–Confirmations(7)

Malassezia Orange

           So i let it Dry out for a couple of weeks and on the 7/12/13

I took some scrapings and checked them under the Digital Microscope.

                           A good question here –hard one to answer– is:

                          be potentially ‘Active’ under Dry Conditions?

   PART 5 /1

 

The Day after the Digital Microscope was re-installed in my laptop

i thought it would be a good idea to check my fingers and see

how things with Malassezia were going and whether i could see

the same things as back then when i had trouble accepting what it was

and if my observations and interpretations of its liquid state

were as constant and correct.

 

Below is the first Photo i took of one finger

– the rest three or four of them looked pretty similar. 

  Malassezia after Treatment MD

   ( Dead after Acidophilus???… )                                                                     

  The First thing i noticed

  was the Dull Green Colour as if tinged with a touch of Gray.

 

The Second thing i noticed was that the View was Static!

Nothing was moving, nor Shining or Playing ‘Peek -a- Boo’

with the Digital Microscope Lights hiding then re-appearing etc

   as i had observe some time back no matter how long i kept

     the DM on, withdrew it and tried again and again…

 

 I had an hour’s Bath at 5.30’ am and it was now Noon.

       I had already applied a couple of Acidophilus treatments 

      in some areas due to movement i felt and some for prevention

 but had not directly treated my hands or fingers

  so i could not explain what exactly was the situation.

 

    This was now the Second time catching Malassezia

looking Green – but Not Fluorescent like below

Malassezia Fluorescent Green 2Malassezia Fluorescent Green

                                          as in the Entry

  “Malassezia ~ Acidophilus ~ and Fluorescent Green (PT1)

 

 Could the Grayish tinge be a Confirmation

that Orange/Yellow or Green (fluorescent) turned Gray  when dead?

 

                      Being Static seems to prove this idea 

                 but i never like to jump to quick conclusions

             preferring to put things under persistent scrutinising

            repeated testing and observing within a length of time

                    before i can feel reasonably comfortable

 accepting theories and possibilities as closer to facts.  

 

     And if dead … then what had killed it?

 

               Was it because my hand was handling 

                  and applying the Acidophilus Mix?..

 

  1- Original photo – 2 and 3 in two different hues to illustrate clearly

 the consistency of the dull Green look

Malassezia after Treatment 3 MD

 

To test the Theory of Acidophilus possibly being a slow Killer

but Killer nevertheless, instead of just a protector or healer

     i decided to take a different action and check results.

 

       So the next day…..

Malassezia Hyphae under Digital Microscope? – QA

*

  *READERS’ KEYWORD QUESTIONS*

  Malassezia Q & A s

          Q1:  * can i see hyphae on my skin with a digi *

                            (digi-tal microscope?)

   Malassezia Coloured Hyphae

   A:  I believe they are visible but not like the ones above

        seen under Biological Microscope – of greater magnification.

 

 I thought i could see them myself – looking like fibres

and moving as if in a light breeze but i could not tell for sure

if they were hyphae because the viewing quality

of the Digital Microscope is quite different than the Biological one.

Everything appears in a more ‘liquid’ – ‘fluidic’ – ‘reflective’- ‘liqht like’

  quality as against the static one of the BM-

 and they could have as well been just dust, tiny fabric or hair fibres

 usually hovering in the air and  invisible to the naked eye.

 

I like to believe i saw them – and on several occasions

because they had a similar look in miniature

to those seen under B Microscope. 

Incidentally, some times even under BM some Hyphae

seemed to perform a brief movement – as if stirred by light breeze

often checking to see if any coming from the window

or perhaps my breath as leaning  close to the sample

– but seemed really impossible.

 

With the Digital Microscope we were better able to see

the look of Lesions and Bumps magnified,  in areas where

direct eye contact was difficult, such as inner /outer buttocks

labia majoras and surrounding area or the back of ears, scalp etc.

and even better to observe Malassezia behaviour

on accessible areas but invisible to the eye due to size and colour

such as directly on our fingertips and eyelashes

Malassezia  In Eye and Fingertip MD

Also the condition of our seemingly perfect looking fingernails…

                        (photo by iphone below)

and shocking revelation of reality against appearance!

Malassezia Yeast, Morgellons, Demodex or Parasites?

 
MIcroscopes MD
 
Malassezia Yeast, Morgellons, Demodex or Parasites?
============================================================================== 
Malassezia Yeast, Morgellons, Demodex or Parasites?
.
    Samples Under Microscope1 MB
 
Back in time when i first created the original ‘Sonata’s Story’ Blog
seeing how events were developing fast in regard to increasing visitor numbers, 
i decided to create an improved version and  ‘Malassezia – My Story’ was born…
 
On the Banners on Both sites one can see the inclusion of Demodex and Morgellons
as well as Fungal infections, simply because at the time i was searching and trying
to find out what the problem was as the symptoms were multiple and confusing.
 
I have written the story of how it was all initially thought as head lice, then body lice,
then scabies, then parasites, then demodex, then morgellons and along the search line
i was taking a slice of a theory from different forum gyrations, aided by photos
and symptoms described, some matching some not, and the theory kept changing
while i was frantically trying to deal with a Medusa like of a Devil.
 
I spent hundreds of dollars and donned on me near lethal quantities of any chemicals
i could get my hands onto, and i fought my husband tooth and claw against the idea
of buying a Microscope – what would be the point? the Google photo
and some symptoms mentioned on other sites indicated clearly
that i had Morgellons so why spend extra money for a microscope?
 – until thankfully in the end being out of solutions or reliable identification
and the Morgellons stories starting to unfold for me like a script out of Dr WHO
i was finally persuaded and grudgingly agreed for us to get a Digital one.
 
This, initially opened the path to more confusion, feelings of horror
and resistance accepting what stared back at me, but then i got down to work
and numerous photos were taken of equally numerous samples
from everywhere i could collect them from both of us.
 
Soon its usefulness became apparent when we were able to view
what by the naked eye looked like bumpy, pimply hair follicles,
      that were in fact creature infested and impregnated, 
.
 Hair Follicle1 MB
   and what was even more difficult to see clearly but felt painful and itchy
                    in the private area, that were purple bumps 
 
                                                                                     
Purple Bumps on Labia1 MB
           and how they opened and augmented as they developed
.
Malassezia  Lesion1 MB
            or  how the Creature was Liquid and Mobile such as on fingers 
.
Malassezia on Fingers1
 
    Still there were many questions and identification still very hard
other than knowing whatever it was it did Not look like Lice or Scabies.
 
At the time my entire body was covered with regularly erupting bumps,
scratch lines and lesions and my hair thickly gluey, comb impenetrable
                              and falling by the clumps.
 
      These were some of the photos of ‘allegedly’ Morgellons symptoms
i compared with what looked almost identical to the lesions i had on my body:
 

  M Google Images 1 MB

         Under the Digital Microscope i could see some short black fibres
                                      … seemingly moving!
                   I dismissed as possible clothe or carpet fibres 
        I was desperate enough to be gullible enough not only to believe
                     but to even try this … Morgellon’s… ‘cure’:
 
“Have a Bath with Sun powdered laundry detergent with Colorsafe Bleach PLUS Alfalfa tablets.
These seem to combine to produce something that is lethal to the machines. (Machines???)
This cure for Morgellon’s disease was discovered by accident.” Cure???
                         ( accident! sounds more like it … Lol!…)
 
No need to say it was a Laughable Proposition of Zilts Results 
   despite many boxes of washing powder and bottles of Alfalfa, 
                   if one could be in a mood to laugh…
Soon it was obvious that this magnification was not adequate
and something stronger closer to professional level was needed
– but again my man had to fight me even though i could now see
the need for it myself – but i could also see the hundreds of dollars
having escalated to thousands – without any results to show… 
 
Eventually, i gave in and we bought the Biological Microscope.
In retrospect, one of the Best things we could have ever done!
 
After initial familiarisation with the viewing, things started to look
        seriously ‘Interesting’ as well as helping to clarify
         some of the mysteries viewed by the Digital one.
 
Many samples later, when we could repeatedly and unfailingly see
                      the constant presence of ‘SOMETHING’
                    i started searching Google and G/ Images
            for Parasites, alleged Morgellons fibres and Demodex,
             using as many variations of keywords i could think of
so the engines would bring as many links and / or photos as possible…
 
While searching i saw photos that burned the retinas of my eyes,
burned holes in my brain and memory – and made me sick in the stomach,
                                  yet i still kept pressing on.
 
               None of the Countless ones we saw of Parasites
         seemed to match the ones we could see in Our samples
                    – they looked somewhat similar? … yet not!…
 
          Neither did they seem to match any of the Morgellons ones
           despite the many almost identical resemblance of lesions
             and other physical symptoms on photos of body parts.
 
We could see Fibres very clearly under the B microscope,
and unlike the ones that looked only black under the Digital,
some of the same sample ones as well as of many others,
looked bright Red, well formed, rounded and robust,
some looked Maroon, and some grayish, empty and dishevelled, 
and much like dendrites opened up in some parts and disintegrating.
 
     Some samples of crystalline shards, revealed developing fibres (1)
    and only one among many samples of mine, while a few of my man’s,
              showed what very closely resembled a Demodex.(2-3)
 

Samples Under Microscope1 MB

 
    Having no other way of finding out the identity of viewed items
            i posted some photos and a desperate message
        in a Microscope related  Forum where people were posting photos
        and  Microscope related discussions, some as hobby
            and – as i understood it- some as professionals 
                        – and so  i enlisted their help.
 
Many responded trying to help but no one could tell with certainty
except for One person who presented me with their full name and credentials
and Related work in the Field and Identified one of the Photos  
 as a Yeast Fungus but  as a good Professional refrained from making
a diagnosis and urged me to see… a Specialist… which i did … twice!
but turned out to be a very painful, extremely regretful experience …
                    and a hopeless – dead case one… 
 
Nevertheless, i am eternally Grateful to that Gentleman
that made the effort to respond to my plea
because his input help me Immensely and changed my Life
                       or rather Saved it!!
 
I must confess here, that knowing nothing about Yeast Fungus
i was initially rather sceptical about the correctness of the identification
but having practically ruled out the Parasite case and finding nothing under
either one of the Microscopes that could substantiate the Morgellons case
and remembering also my man exclaiming loud the very first time
       we saw movement under the Digital Microscope:
              “Geeeesus!… this looks like Fungus!...”
   i thought if nothing else, out of courtesy to this  Gentleman
         – and an experienced Professional  for that matter-
i should search Google and Google Images and see if there is anything
that resembled the ‘Yeast Fungus’ identification of our samples.
 
  And here came the most Significant Revelation!

 

Photos 1- 2: Our samples

 Identical looking FibresDistinctive Nodulated joints and abundant presence 

of surrounding spores? / ‘meatballs’ – which unfortunately are not visible
in our photos due to poor ‘phone camera’ quality- despite absolute clarity 
                when viewed under the Biological Microscope!
 
On the assumption that the above ‘Lab Photos’ published on Google Images
are showing correctly identified and named the Samples
as Malassezia Yeast Fungus and after comparing the striking similarity of details
               i was left with absolutely no doubt any more
and targeted both my Research and Treatment efforts in that direction.
 
Many more samples from both of us from as many areas as we could collect
repeatedly showed the same theme, over and over and over
Malassezia fibres/hyphae – coloured according to the different
stages of development, e.g. bright red when freshly drawn blood 
 marron later on, dark gray at end of cycle, light gray at beginning
of disintegration and light ash colour gray with a dendrite appearance
                   when breaking open and falling apart.
 
No movement of the liquid stage was visible under the Biological Microscope
as we did not use any medium –we just placed the samples under the lenses-
showing only as liquid ‘appearance’ but the movement of the liquid stage
            was clearly visible under the Digital Microscope.
The unseen movement became apparent when the samples were viewed again
a few days later indicating very perceptible growth or augmentation.
 
Now let us  Compare some of Our Photos with some Google Images:

                                                         *

   Regarding Morgellons, according to one Online Source:
 
 
“This condition is not currently recognized as a distinct clinical disorder
          with established diagnostic criteria that are generally accepted
                                         by the medical community…”
 
This does not mean Morgellons does not exist – but simply that
i do not feel i am qualified to verify its existence or validity of symptoms etc.
 
In my view – and there is always a good chance for error – either many cases
of simple Malassezia Yeast symptoms are Mistaken or Confused as Morgellons
or If Morgellons as such exists, causes the onset of aggravated Malassezia symptoms.
 
  Incidentally, this Morgellons Photo shown above
  also appears as Lyme Disease in Google Images!

                         So… Who named it Morgellons 
                        and Who named it Lyme disease
           and most importantly  
                    Which one Is It?…

                              And Treatable with Antibiotics.
                                (At least in the early stages)
 
For me, what is More important  than either Naming or Category  
is  Finding ways to either Control its devastating symptoms
or an Overall Effective Internal Cure 
where i consider the origin and proliferation is taking place
– a belief i have finally arrived at after many months of observations.
 
Control i have already achieved to the greatest degree achievable
at least so far – but there is no ground that can be guaranteed
              as permanently gained and established.
 
Therefore, i have been hoping and working towards finding an actual
and hopefully more lasting treatment,  either by means
of some aid or by changing and enhancing my immune system
while in the meantime applying the methods that keep it under control
          and minimise both the Malassezia presence
      as well as manifestation or severity of symptoms
             thus making the everyday life liveable.
