Methylated Spirits – Applied:

   On Ears on outside – Face 

   (External Genital areas Briefly Dabbed only)

   On Lesions Anywhere – Legs, Feet, Toes.

   (On a Cotton Wad left until dry)

Mycil (Tolnafate ) – Applied:

   Feet, Toes – Have tried on Lesions and Pubic area – deters Briefly only

 

– The Bilaterals  – Deter initially – for a short time – then Attract

Nizoral – Applied:

   On Head – Scalp/Hair – Ears – and all over Body as Body Wash

   Occasionally dubbed undiluted on a small area under attack

   activity stopped – as with applying anything – but result undetected

Permethrin (Cream Shampoo) – Applied:

   On Head – Scalp/Hair – Ears

   Ineffective Unless it contains BUTOXIDE

   Delayed Yeast return and activity and feeling of dry stretched scalp

   indicates perhaps it may kills ‘spores’ – the Only one i know

Selsun Gold (Selenium Sulphite) – Applied:

   On Head – Scalp/Hair – Ears (Ineffective)

Fresh Lemon Juice – Applied:

   On Head – Scalp/Hair – Ears – Shoulders –Torso

   Relocates yeast quickly then it returns with a vengeance!

Apple Cider Vinegar – Applied:

   On Head – Scalp/Hair

   Relocates yeast quickly then it returns with a vengeance!

Iodine, Dettol Disinfectants – Applied:

   On Lesions directly–diluted and undiluted–as deterrents and in the Bath

   Greasy and Sticky and highly inviting Yeast back!

Neutrogena Oil Free – Applied:

   On Dry, Plastic -Lizard like skin- destroyed by Malassezia Sticky Layer.  

   Left on for extended time or overnight dissolves and clears dead skin

   but contains Salicylic acid (Blood Thinner) causing bruising 

   and in my case bleeding as well.

  ( Its Intended use is to be applied briefly and rinse )

   There are safer alternatives in Seawater and YAM 

Acetyl/Alcohol containing Items –such as Shampoos or Lotions

   Causing quick Yeast Return and possible proliferation 

   though i have not confirmed the latter!

  

Malassezia Fakes

 

Applied On the Body Externally

 

Colloidal Silver – Applied:

   All Over Body and Lesions – No apparent Effect whatsoever

   Also Taken Internally (for many months)

Scabies Creams

Athletes Foot cream

   Both the above applied Morning and Night back to back

   for many weeks – dozens of tubes

 

SALT as in  SEA SALT – POOL SALT –  And Commercial Table Salt

I have used both types for extended periods of time and massive quantities

except Commercial Salt due to Raising Blood Pressure and causing Clotting.

In Swimming Pool, in the Bath massive quantities- as Foot Spa etc

It hydrates the Skin but i noticed it leaves it vulnerable to Malassezia.

A minimal benefit was a somewhat faster healing of lesions

but not anywhere near the Real – Seawater!

Seawater Hydrates the Skin but Deters the Yeast  

–Protects and Heals – Fast!!!

 

SODA as in BAKING SODA and in LAUNDRY DETERGENTS etc.

Applied directly on Body and in the Bath water

Soda is the opposite to Salt that it Dries the Skin badly

and so rendering it vulnerable to Malassezia.

Burns where Malassezia is present or on lesions and only deters briefly – if so… 

Epsom Salts – Simply No Effect!

 

Malassezia Breeders

 

  Applied On the Body Externally

 

  * * * * ALL OILS!!! * * * *

OILS-Lotions-Ointments-Body washes-Shampoos-Conditioners 

Gels –Lanoline and Generally ALL Greasy /Fatty / Waxy items

Irrespective of Any Antifungal or Antiseptic qualities

including medicated preparations.

Theoretically expected and falsely believed to Kill –

 instead Facilitating Malassezia Multiplication

 

* Vaginal Clotrimazol (Cream) Prescription and Over Counter- Applied:

Inserted in Vagina. Initially soothing then shortly afterwards

burning like Fire -the Malassezia Fire- and a Frenzy of Traffic back in!

Took a while and repeated Blood and Lesions along the walls

to realise it was an enemy rather than a helper

having caused a lot of Unbearable pain and Discomfort 

for quite some time – and the more internal lesions

the greater the fight to keep Malassezia out.

It took starting to Insert 3 Acidophilus Capsules daily directly inside

to finally Sooth, Deter Malassezia and allow it to beautifully Heal the area.

(There was an unexplainable Paradox at this conjecture 

which i worked out after starting the regular course of Acidophilus

and being able to observe the cycle of internal/external traffic  

the healing, the deterring and the lessening of return traffic,

Malassezia  –early stage– coming out of the Vagina is harmless

causing only a Burning sensation as it spreads along on the outer body

and settles in follicles but It turns ferocious  when returning at maturity

creating painful Lesions along the walls as is preparing for multiplication.)

 

All Three Below – Applied:

Scabies Creams

Canesten Athletes Foot Cream (Clotrimazol 10mg/g)

Daktarin (Miconazole Nitrate)

All Over the Body – from Ears/Neck down to Toes

– Daily for Many months – Dozens of tubes…

and More and More Malassezia Frenzy after a brief quiet.

 

  And Now the Worst Category of All

  The All in One ‘Breeders’ Basket

 

Oils 

Applied:

-As Pure Oils Directly on Externally affected areas

-As Ingredients in Body Wash/Lotions –Shampoo/Conditioners

-And In the Bath

Various ShampoosConditioners and Body Washes

   especially containing Fragrances and Oils

Vitamin C powder and tablet (inserted in Vagina)

Hydrogen Peroxide – Applied:

– On Scalp/Hair (Not very effective)

Malassezia and Open Wounds – QA

*

*READERS’ KEYWORD QUESTIONS*

Malassezia Q & A s

Q: * Why does malassezia yeast go nuts when opened wound*

Malassezia and wounds

A:   Simply because an Open wound provides prepared ground

        for the requirements of its next stage of cycle  

        and with readily available Blood supply. 

 

It is also attracted to inflamed areas where the skin has been invaded

and Lesions produced by a previous bunch of its kind.

 

Often – unless effective measures for Fast healing or prevention

of more of it being attracted to that area, the lesions keep expanding 

and take much longer to end and the area be abandoned and start to heal.

 

The end occurs when no more spores(?) are emerging from 

the cloning area and only then the healing can start 

either on its own or faster with healing aids *

(* Details about healing aids available in the  * Malassezia Blog)

 

I have seen several Malassezia Hyphae under the Microscope

in different stages of progress and many fresh ones are Bright Red

where Blood has been drawn from an affected skin area

while some look a darker maroon, also old drawn blood?

The dead ones look grayish and fragmented like empty dead logs.

(Photos and relevant Details available in the  * Malassezia Blog )

 

If care is not taken Immediately to deter Malassezia from an inflamed

or wounded area, it can take over pretty quick …

 

A few days back my Man was re-arranging some furniture for me

and he accidentally stabbed his big Toe and started to bleed.

I urged him to let me attend to it immediately before (his) Malassezia

got a chance to settle in there  first.

He refused, saying he wanted to finish the job and have a shower first … etc

 

I warned him that by that time it might be too late

and from the Look of the Toe Malassezia might even 

destroy the Nail and cause it to fall off… 

He did not believe me -even though living together

he should have known how much i have learned over the past 

four years battling this beast and have trusted me.

 

He finished the job, he had his shower, then let me attend to it…

I noticed how red, inflamed and vulnerable it looked

and i knew it had less than a 50/50 chance of uninterrupted recovery 

because Malassezia gets at its very active in the Evening and Night…

 

Next morning it was worse and i told him i believed Malassezia    

had got to it, so only Peroxide would stop it progressing  

and if i was correct  in my assessment about it having settled there

there was a good possibility of him experiencing excruciating pain.  

He was willing to give it a try.

 

Hours later while in Bed, Peroxide started to take effect killing Malassezia

and the pain – usually like  surgery without anaesthetic! – was so strong

he could not sleep and after a couple of hours he gave in

got up and washed it off… 

 

The Following morning he discovered

the High Priestess had predicted the future accurately: 

The Nail Bed was Destroyed, the Entire Nail Empty and Detached

holding only by a very thin thread near the root…  (photos below)                                                                      

From then on he has been heeding any advice i give him mainly:

Keep Cutting the Nail frequently as much as you can each time

-leaving only a bit for cover- to stimulate faster growth of new

and apply Deterrents to keep Malassezia from returning

and turning it into an Ugly Chronic Problem …

 

It will take time for a new nail to grow and in the meantime 

there will always be a danger of a  fresh inhibiting attack.

 

   Some Photos tell the Story

    His good Toe shows how the Infected One

                                looked Before the attack

     Malassezia and Toe Nails1

Below the Infected One After the attack

 

Cutting a little off it every day Stimulates new growth from the root…

 Middle and third photos show faintly the Bump where the toe was stabbed

clearly away from the Nail itself but it was the Inflammation of the area

that Attracted and /or Stimulated the Malassezia attack.

Infected Toe MD

Day 1                                          Day 2                                           Day 3

 

So the rule where there is inflammation or open wound, is

* Attend to it Immediately

* Apply Non greasy or acetyl  containing type of disinfecting agent

* Keep clean and wrapped

* Keep a close eye and inspection at all times, especially if inflammation

   swelling and uncomfortable itching continues or returns.

Malassezia and H/Peroxide QA

*READERS’ KEYWORD QUESTIONS*

Malassezia Q & A s

Q: * can hydrogen peroxide cure malass* 

Peroxide and Malassezia    

                    A: H/Peroxide Can Kill Malassezia

                          Topically and Temporary

                       But cannot CURE it…

 

Hydrogen Peroxide can Kill Malassezia Slowly but Effectively

when Applied Topically – Directly and Undiluted

to where there is Malassezia Presence and Activity

– but only on that area.

 

Killing Malassezia Topically does Not mean

CURING Malassezia as a general problem

so that it does not manifest anywhere else

or even in the treated area itself, after a short period of time.

 

In fact, if The Peroxide Treatment

has caused Inflammation and Bleeding in the treated area

which in many cases it does, this  in itself

once the Peroxide has been wiped or washed off

becomes an inviting ground for more

as Malassezia is attracted to Inflamed or Bleeding areas

*MALASSEZIA DICTIONARY*

Malassezia Dictionary

      HYDROGEN PEROXIDE


Peroxide for Malassezia

In my Experience of Repeated Treatments on Different Areas

Hydrogen Peroxide Kills Malassezia Slowly but Effectively

when Applied Topically – Directly and Undiluted

to where there is Malassezia Presence and Activity

but – with Varying Degrees of Pain, Discomfort and Mess.

 

Used in the Bath tab – Bottles of it for Several Weeks 

have had Absolutely No Effect whatsoever

 

I cannot verify if it kills Malassezia at the Spore stage

as it is hard to tell generally where the spores are located

so i am talking about having used it on my Scalp

where they were sure to be, as i was losing my hair in clumps

but was unable to tell if it was effective

other than turning my hair …blond …

 

One of the reasons it was difficult to determine its effectiveness

on the scalp was that back then when i used the Peroxide

i had so much Malassezia traffic all Over my Entire Body

that anything killed in one area was replaced

 with a new Batch in a very short period of time

often within half hour or so.

 

Another reason was using it slightly Diluted for safety

and /or in Combination with Shampoo.

 

Areas i have Used it Topically with Successful

but Unforgettably Painful Messy Results: 

 

Undiluted:

On Feet, Toes, Legs, Fingers and the inside of Hands.

(With Unforgettably Painful and or Messy Results)

 

Diluted with Water:

1- In the outer inside area of Ears

(Ending up almost Deaf and in great Pain for four weeks)

and 

2- on Scalp

(Surprisingly without any Pain or other negative effects.

Possibly Malassezia still at an early mobile stage

relocated away from scalp area to Ears, Neck, Shoulders

escaping -temporarily or effectively- death

and so been spared the horrendous consequences?)

 

This i assume was because

a) At an early stage of development Malassezia is mobile

and can quickly move and relocate before HP kills it

without having released its corrosive substance

-while possibly surviving only temporarily- 

therefore No Pain nor Lesions.

 

At a later stage  where it has semi-solidified and is ready to dig in

into the skin,  by gradually releasing its corrosive substance,

it cannot relocate anymore, therefore taking the entire impact of HP

and as it dies its corrosive element is released all at once

creating Painful Erosion of the skin and resulting in Burst bubbles

and Lesions which take long time to heal. 

 

This of course i cannot validate scientifically,

just a personal assumption based on Repeated Patterns and Results

over a Four Year period and attempting to put the puzzle pieces together.

Malassezia and Peroxide QA

                                *

       *READERS’ KEYWORD QUESTIONS*

                                            Malassezia Q & A s

Q: * does hydroxygen peroxide kill malezezzia*

Peroxide and Malassezia

 

A: (I assume *hydroxygen* is a typo for Hydrogen )

 

           The Answer is YES and … NO!….

 

In my Experience of Repeated Treatments of different areas

it Kills Malassezia slowly but effectively 

if Peroxide is applied Directly and Undiluted

on an area where Malassezia is Present

but – with Varying Degrees of Pain, Discomfort and Mess.

 

In the earlier stage of Malassezia’ s development

HP causes very strong Uncomfortably Painful tingling 

for a good 20-30 minutes before it eventually kills

but with no other side effects

 

In a more advanced stage, when Malassezia is closer to digging into the skin

it causes much greater, almost unbearable Pain and Discomfort

-much like having surgery without anaesthetic-

due to the releasing at once of its corrosive to the skin element

leaving behind a big Painful mess of either Burst Blistered Bubbles

or Open Stinging Lesions that take quite some time to heal.

 

HP used in the Bath tab – bottles of it for several weeks –

have had No effect whatsoever.

 

I cannot verify if it kills Malassezia at the Spore stage.

It appears to cause No Pain but it is also hard to tell generally

where the spores are located so i am only talking about having used it

on my scalp where they were sure to be, as i was losing my hair in clumps

and there was no pain but unable to tell if it was effective

other than giving me …blond hair…

 

One of the reasons it was difficult to determine its effectiveness on the scalp

was that back then when i first used the Peroxide

i had so much Malassezia traffic all Over my Entire body

that anything killed in one area was replaced within a very short time

with a new batch, often within half hour or so.

 

Another reason was that i used it slightly Diluted for safety

and /or in Combination with Shampoo.
