*READERS’ KEYWORD QUESTIONS*
Q1: * can i see hyphae on my skin with a digi *
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
Also the condition of our seemingly perfect looking fingernails…
