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

.

                         Malassezia

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

.

                       Morgellons

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.

Malassezia – A Reader’s Keyword or … Oily Hint?

                         

     * MALASSEZIA – READERS’ QUESTIONS & KEYWORDS *            

                          *

          * Malassezia – A Reader’s Keyword Or … Oily Hint? *

  Malassezia hint

.

                       K1- * oil doesn’t attract Malassezia *

.

I have been looking at this Keyword for some time now

 trying to think of different ways of interpreting it.

.

– It does not look like possibility of accidental Typo 

– It does not suggest or imply a question

– It is not phrased in a question format

 Whichever way i am trying to look at it

  i can only see it as a straight clear statement.

  A statement carrying a message … to me???

.

Inserting it timidly or surreptitiously in the Keywords section

-again i cannot interpret mode, motive or intention-

and without any further info or supporting evidence

no matter how well intentioned, it is not of much use

or enlightenment either to Me or to any other Readers.

It would have been preferable if the above Reader

had sent an email elaborating on the meaning

and premise of their statement, i.e.

.

Is their statement derived from:

– Personal view, assumption, logical deduction?

– Personal experience?

– Personal expertise in the medical/research field?

– Official medical information discovered?

– Knowledge or possession of recent scientific evidence?

– And perhaps provide links or explanations of how /why etc.

.

         If the Reader is a regular visitor to this Site

                       This is an Invitation

         Invitation MD

                          To please Do so!

There is always something new or …old to learn

and i am personally interested and open to learning

any Facts regarding Malassezia and its operations

and correcting my view – if there has been

any misinterpretation on my part

of my personal observations and experiences.

.

I am sure other Readers would be interested too …

.

In Several Entries throughout this Blog i have presented

some Informative Laboratory Research shedding more light

into the ways Malassezia operates – and some i have seen as

Supporting or Confirming my Own Observations and Findings

over a Five Year period – longer if pre-identification years

were included- when i was actually treating its symptoms

heavily and persistently with a variety of Oils and Ointments

           of all sorts, only to see them getting worse.

.

Below a small sample of Laboratory Research i have Presented

in earlier Entries throughout – with links to the sites provided.

Malassezia and Lipids 1-R

Malassezia and Lipids 3-1

      Malassezia and Lipids on skin

 Of course it is the Elderly, the Ill and the Immuno-compromised

 that get the problems, even though or perhaps because their skins

            do not secret / provide  those … ‘Attracting Oils’???

 Noting here the difference between ‘presence‘ and ‘problems

 ‘Presence‘ is Natural if Malassezia is present as a Commensal

 while the ‘Problems‘ are created when it turns into a Pathogen

Malassezia – Quick Readers’ Questions & Keywords

                         

      * READERS’ QUESTIONS & KEYWORDS  *            

                             *

         *Malassezia – Quick Readers’ Questions & Keywords*

                                                     *.

                        More Info regarding Keywords below

                   Can be found in Earlier Entries in Both Blogs.

                                                     *

                      Q1- *does cuticura help with candida*

    Malassezia - Soap MD

   The reason i am addressing this Keyword is because

    many Readers confuse Malassezia and Candida 

    and – or simply do not know which one is causing them problems.

                             As far as i know

a) Candida is easily identified in medical tests

b) There is a lot more research done and therefore more known

     about it, due to being easier to grow in Laboratories

     since, it appears, it does not require the presence

     of Lipids as a growth Medium as is the case with Malassezia

                                                            .

– Cuticura is an antibacterial soap not sold in Australia

   and have not had a chance to trial, which is good

   because i doubt it would have been good for Malassezia

– According to tests results No Candida was found on me

   nor do i seem to exhibit any of its characteristic symptoms

           -although there are many that are similar-

   so i cannot offer any opinion as to whether it would help

                          – but my thinking is:

   If antibacterial soaps cured Candida there would not

   have been such plethora of ads and expensive kits

   promising – unique ways of curing it! Lol!

   Candida seems to be another high Recurrence devil…

                     And speaking about Devils…          .

                             K1- *sexia*

        Malassezia - SEXIA MD. jpg                    

                   Really? … You think so?

           I m sure ‘She’ will be Flattered, Lol!

.

               K2- *malassezia sexual cycle*

             Malassezia Cloning MD

    MalasSeXia SeXual Cycle means… Maniacal Cloning!

      Reminds me of a line in a Eurythmics Song;

   ‘…Sisters are doing it… for themselves…’  Lol!

.

                  K3- *pms and trichotillomania

                             Malassezia -Trich and Binging

PMS is a time when Trichilomania Flare-ups on Scalp

 and /or other Body areas can occur

a) Due to Hormonal changes and

b) Cravings and Binge Eating – especially on Sugars

(More in Earlier Specific Trichillomania and Scalp  Entries)

        A Theory of Trichotillomania.

        K4- *Malassezia and depression*

      Malassezia and Depression MD

                 Quick list of helpers

   Herbs

> Withania powder Capsules

   ( pictured above – Absolutely marvellous! )

> St John’s wart

   Supplements

> B Complex x 3 Daily

> Calcium – Magnesium supplements

> Melatonin

Avoid Sugars, Alcoholic Drinks, Artificial Additives

(More details in earlier Entries) 

.

K5- *malassezia in teeth*

         Malassezia in Teeth. jpg.

Yes… it does plague the Teeth as well…

I have not mentioned this before because

i have not been able to produce a presentable proof

or microscope confirmation but  i have had many

lip attacks, fewer tongue and side of mouth

and even the occasional brief throat attempt

       -fortunately no gum problems!-

so 98% certainty that it gathers on teeth is not unrealistic.

 .

           To clarify this statement:

There are times i feel an overpowering bitter-sourly taste

in my mouth -usually a day prior to a Die Off  effect-

which i have come to identify as the Malassezia taste.

During those times, when i run tissue paper over my Teeth

it comes up with either an orange or a light lime-green hue on it

-both signs of Malassezia presence- and clear enough to see

with naked eye but not strong enough to show in photo

and neither collectable for viewing under microscope

-therefore the 98% certainty and the 2% missing ability

of proof presentation, unless one is there to witness.


Attempts to view saliva under Microscope were unsuccessful

due to saliva reflective quality – see details in Photo Entries.

.

My belief and observations indicate that usually

the ‘around and in mouth’ attacks are due to

> Sugary intake – would include Alcohol – and suspect

> Some Toothpaste/mouth Disinfecting products)

> Lack of Body Hydration forcing it to mouth, eyes, nostrils

    as well as genital areas are that naturally.

     (More about Hydration, Hygiene and Cosmetics products

      and Malassezia Behaviour caused by them, see earlier Entries) 

.

      K6- *shapoo with malassezia in it

Malassezia - Shampoo MD

Ok! … I admit i just cannot comprehend this one.

Who would want a Shampoo with Malassezia in it

when everyone would kill to find one that …Kills it? Lol!

Is someone trying to be funny?

I hope so … and it is appreciated

I would give anything for a good laugh 🙂

.

           K7- *pitryosporum folliculitis crawling*

         When crawling or Burning sensation is felt

                is best to immediately Rub-Wash

          with a harsh Face Cloth and Warm water. 

.

K8- *pussonpenis*

                        Malassezia ...pus sy

                   Oh Meow!… Which Puss? Lol!

Ok i must confess, i had to scrap completely an entire blog

and start from scratch after i discovered to my horror

          all the misspellings of Puss instead of Pus

           – due to the auto correct function-

    and was mortified at the laughs my Readers would have had

       especially when talking about private parts

            so lets get on to the serious question:

                          *puss on penis*

There can be many causes for pus on a penis

and i know …nothing about them other than vaguely

‘some kind of infection and help it not be a bad one’.

Malassezia is one of them and a bad one for that matter

due to the sensitivity of the area, the pain, persistence

recurrence and inconvenience that it causes.

Many Tips in earlier entries throughout both Blogs

and especially those dealing with the genital areas

may be helpful and worth reading and considering.

.

Assuming Symptoms in K9-K16 are caused by Malassezia  

K9-  *breast black line lesion*

K10- *black lesion itchy swollen*

K11- *black lumps on front vagina lips*

K12- *black dots on vagina lips*

K13- *blood filled bump on labia*

The appearing Black is Blood, either fresh, 

concentrated and encapsulated within the Lesion

where Malassezia will commence Cloning

or dried up on the surface while it is cloning underneath.

K14- *yeast infection sores on labia*

K15- *bump on lip of outer labia*

K16- *sores on labia*.

                     * Friendly Skin Flora Promotion and Protection

                     * ‘Live Nutrient’ Providing Diet

                     * Hygiene and Choice of Treatment/s

                       (Natural or Chemical – Internal or External )           

                                                  *

 * The Longer the Duration and Severity of Skin Corrosion

   the Longer it takes for the Skin to Heal

   Thus, creating Perpetual Wounds and Vulnerability

    Attracting  Continual or Cyclic attacks 

    Weekening ability of fast or complee healing

    giving the impression of never healing.    

    Natural Deterrents Facilitating Fast Healing can Help

                 .

  *  Once an Area is totally clear, any treatment

      i.e killing, healing, or preventative should be stopped

      especially if containing chemical elements

      (such as Talc powders containing Aluminium)

     to allow Balance and Restoration

     of Natural Defence and Beneficial Flora

      unless vulnerable to Recurrent attacks, in which case

     a Natural harmless deterrent would be preferable.

.

  * A Good Diet is Comprised of Three Equally Important Parts

   1) Providing Abundance of Bio-available Live Nutrients

   2) Preservation of Live Nutrients where Cooking is required

   3) Exclusion of All Burdening and Disturbance creating Ingredients

       such as either

   a) Foods Processed, Altered and Devitalised

   b) Containing Chemical, Artificial Substances.

.

 * A Sign of Yeast Dying on Impact Externally

    after application of some substances

    is often the resulting Burning and/or Bubbles

   -excluding Acidophilus which acts in a Slow but Painless way.

.

* Breathable Cottons are Best for Skin Contact

  such as Underwear, Vests, Singlets etc.

  Synthetics appear to cause activity and intensify Itching

.

              * A Natural Firm Bristle Bamboo Body Brush

                          Body Brush MD

      Is Ideal for Exfoliating Dead Brown Malassezia Sticky Film

       I recently purchased two – the soft bristle one is useless

                           the Firm Bristle is Perfect!

                            It can also relieve Itching

                      and remove active Malassezia grit.

              A long handle is helpful for difficult to reach areas.

          A Medium handle as above gives a  better grip and angle

                      for vigorous more effective brushing.

                                 I use it on Dry skin

            and intend to purchase one for Bath Scrubbing 

           although  an Old rough/coarse Face Cloth is excellent

                When i am on a Highly Hydrating Diet

          -On Belief and Repeated Confirmation of Benefits-

            Malassezia appears to definitely be more Active

          but with much Less Punishing Effects on the Skin

         while when on a Less Hydrating – More Solid Diet

             of Lightly Steamed Vegetables, thus providing

        Considerably Reduced Hydration (and ‘live’ nutrients)

                        Malassezia activity and presence

                      appears to be Reduced temporarily

            but then Turned into an Unbearably Increased

                     Corrosive –Fire like– Burning and Itch

           penetrating and interrupting even the deeper sleep

        and /or waking up to either Acid like Fluid filled Bubbles

                    or some extensive Red-Burn-like areas

            such as the Under Breast nasty Surprise incident.

                                 (See Related Entry)

                                                ~

                       HOW IS the BODY HYDRATED

         Hydration MD

                 1) ACTIVE – CONSTRUCTIVE HYDRATION 

                                  a) Production 

                                  b) Content

                                of Body Fluids

                                     

                     2) ACTIVE – ELIMINATIVE 

                              Detoxification

                          Can be Best achieved

             with a Nutrient Rich Organic Water Content

                  in Fresh Raw Fruit and Vegetables

             .

                               Active Hydration    

                                   Approve Positive

                Provides and Satisfies the Body Requirements

                 for Building and Nutrient enriched Hydration

              in the Form of Fresh Raw Fruits and Vegetables.

                                                        .

                               Passive or Neutral

                   Goes through the digestive system

              offering little else but some essential water

            to partially cover some eliminative processes

            in the Form of Water plus any externally added       

        substances such as in Teas, Processed Fruit extracts

                      or absorbed in Cooked Foods.

  .

                Some may dispute this – I cannot prove it

                     Only the Body can speak for Itself

                              to those able to ‘listen’…

               Regular Consumers of Fresh Raw Foods

      would know the difference and what i am talking about…

  .

           Tap Water is only One part of Body Hydration

                      Indispensable and Necessary

                    but Not as Valuable and Important

                   as the Nutrient Rich Water Content

                   of Fresh Raw Fruit and Vegetables

                      whether eaten whole or juiced.

    (Most Fruits and Veggies are 80% – 95% Water Content )

.

                           Empty and Unsuitable                                                                     

      Approve Negative

                  * Processed, Reconstituted Juices

                  * Processed heated Canned Fruits, or

                  * Made into Jam and Marmalades

                                                     *                                                  .

                  * Boiled, Fried, Roasted Vegetables 

                            Jam and Marmalades

                          Do Not Retain Nutrients

              and are Neither Nutritious Nor Hydrating.

                Any water content remaining or absorbed

         during such above processing is inferior in quality

                   and does Not Qualify as Hydrating.

.

              The Proof is in the Thirst or Hunger Signals

                  produced despite their consumption.

                                              ~

                    The Hydration Malassezia Fears

       Malassezia Water Fear

           The One Type of Hydration Malassezia Fears

     is Paradoxically… Warm Water!… used to Scrub it Off!

        It is the most effective way of destroying it on the Skin

                                On the Condition 

              It is Done as Soon as it is Felt on the Skin

                      Before it Dries out or Settles in

                    (Details provided in Earlier Entries)  

                                                           .

   And to answer the Question about Pityrosporum and Hydration:

         Hydration is Beneficial to and Not against Malassezia

                                           But

                      Indispensable for the Body 

  Malassezia and Body Hydration MD

.

               Dehydrating the Body will only cause harm to It

                        with possible ‘chain’ consequences

        but will Not harm Malassezia more than a brief slow down.

            It will Relocate in areas it can find needed humidity

                         and the Consequences will be

                        Intolerable Pain and Discomfort

     .

                                Plain Warm Water

                   to Wash and Scrub it off Scalp* or Skin

                          in the Early /Activity stage

                       is the Bad One for Malassezia

             and one to implement without harm to the Body

                             *

                     * Malassezia – and Body Hydration (PT 1)*

                                                     *

                      K1: * is hydration good for pityrosporum *

          Water md

                                                     *

                       My Personal View of Body Hydration

                       is Consisting of Two Different Types:

                       One of an Active Double Operation

                            and One Passive  or  Neutral

   .

                      1-1) ACTIVE – CONSTRUCTIVE* 

                                            As in

                       A) Production of Body Fluids

                       B) Content of Body Fluids                                                                    

                        1-2) ACTIVE – ELIMINATIVE 

                                           As in 

                                    Detoxification                                                                           

                         2) PASSIVE – NEUTRAL

           As Fluids Passing through the digestive system

           with minimal constructive or eliminative utilisation

                             (Details and Charts below)

  .

             There are also several External – Environmental

                        Types of Hydration / Humidity

                and they are ALL Favourable to Malassezia

                Internal Body and External Environmental

                                 except for One!

                                           ~

  Hydration as Humidity

            *1-  External – Environmental 

    – Pools, Pool Showers, Bathrooms, Baths and Showers

            and Any Water Collecting Areas or Vessels.

           *2- Environmental in Relation to Its Living

 – Our Body and All its ‘Variations of Fluids  and Humidity’ Areas

                      – Liquid, Humidity, Perspiration etc.                                                           

                    Hydration as Fluids

            *3- Internal Body Hydration

               – As Internal Body Fluid Conditions 

         All these Conditions are Favourable to Malassezia.

   .

        How Important is Hydration for the Body

                 Looking at some Charts Below

            it becomes Obvious that for the Body

                               in One Word

                    HYDRATION means LIFE!

                  FAW MD 2

    Take a Look what it means for Each Vital Organ of the Body!

FAW MD 3R

FAW MD 4

          Percentages provided in the Charts above and below

             vary a little and may not be completely accurate

               but  are a good indication of the Real Levels

          and how much ‘water’ our Body needs to Survive.

FAW MD 1

70% of the Body as a Total, is Water 

85% of the Blood content, is water

80% of the Brain content, is water

75% of the Muscles mass is water

90% of the Cells is water

              Not to mention that Water is also needed for

* Detoxification/* Production of Body Fluids

       such as

– Digestive Juices/– Hormones/– Lung Hydrating

  for elasticity and efficient functioning of clearing dust

  and other particles breathed in

– Mucous production for Protecting

– Nostrils

– Mouth

– Eyes/Eyelids

– Lungs

– Digestive and Urinary Tracts

– Genitals

 >Male head of Penis, Foreskin –  Female Vigina, clitoris)

– Urethra

– Anus

          Therefore, depriving the Body from the Benefits

                              of ample Hydration

                  Would Be Detrimental for the Body

           With Practically NO ILL Effect on Malassezia.   

             Body Hydration MD

  Somehow, i dont think that “Water” is just …Tap Water…

Malassezia ~ Candida – Are they the same?

           

    * READERS’ QUESTIONS & KEYWORDS *

                                     *                    

  * Malassezia – Candida – Are they the same *

                                      *

    Candida Malassezia comparison MD

                                      *

     Q1: * is candida and malassezia the same thing *

         Candida wiki MD 1

                      I have not found anywhere so far any Reference

                                         of  Candida Species

                       Being or listed as part of the Malassezia Species

                                       Neither any Malassezia  

                         Being or listed as part of the Candida Species.

Malassezia Images MD

                   

                          Therefore, for now i will assume that

                                    Malassezia and Candida

                                         Are Not the Same.

        Nevertheless, they Share Many Common Characteristics

Candida Malassezia Comparison MD

         Candida – Malassezia Shared Common Similarities

Candida Albicans MD

  1- General Similarities

* Candida genus include many different Species

* It is Part of the Commensal Human Microflora

* It is a Dimorphic Fungus

* Grows Both as a Yeast or Fungus

* Develops Hyphae (Spores, Pseudohyphae, Hyphae)

* Multiplies by Asexual i.e. Cloning and Hyphae Reproduction

* It turns into Opportunistic Pathogen to Low Immunity Hosts

* Capable of Invading Any Site of the Human Body

* Forms a Biofilm

  (a Self-produced Matrix also referred to as Slime *)

* Causes Diseases

  (depending on Medium and Body area of affliction)

.

   2- Symptoms Similarities

– Rush, Redness, Inflammation

– Itching, Burning, Discharge, Odour etc.

.

         3- Body Area – Ailments Similarities

 * Skin – Cutaneous Candidiasis

– Skin, Creases, Folds,

– Torso (Upper and Middle Body)

– Under Breasts

– Genitals, Groin, Buttocks,

– Hair Follicles

– Other Skin areas

* Mouth Thrush

* Throat – Esophageal Candidiasis

* Blood  – Fungemia

  Candidemia – (Fungemia causes Mortality)

* Genitals/– Penis, Vagina, Anus, Diaper Rash in Babies

* Intestines – Gastrointestinal Tract

* Nails – Onychomycosis (Nail plates)

.

        4- Contributing Causes Similarities

– Low Immunity/- Illness (AIDS, Cancer, Diabetes etc)

– Stress

– Antibiotics

– Steroids, including HRT

– Humidity/ Moisture

–  Warmth/Temperature

– Use of Chemicals / Detergents / Cosmetics, etc

– Sugars, Alcohol

– Poor Nutrition

  (and more)

.

 5- Treatments Similarities

Candida treatments are the same as for Malassezia

 with also Temporary Results and Recurrence

                                   * 

Candida Albicans MD

                                      Notes:

         1- Slime * I assume it is the equivalent of the Malassezia GSL

  or ‘Greyish Sticky Layer’ as i had named it back then

  not knowing any other name, and referring to in recent times

  as ‘Orange-Gray Liquid’ – ‘Amniotic Fluid like’ – or ‘Carrier’.

.

   2- I have Not found so far any reference regarding

  Candida and OIL Requirement for Reproduction

               as is the case with Malassezia.

  I vaguely recollect having read somewhere

  Candida is Not requiring Oil for Proliferation

                       and IF that is correct,

  then this is One point of difference between them.

.

   3- IF i have understood the medical jargon correctly, and

 IF the information is correct and reliable

 some studies of oils have showing a slow down / inhibiting

 effect on Candida virulence – at least on the Petri dish…

( Difference between Petri Dish and Body is that the former

  is a restricted, limited environment where the Yeast/Fungus

  is tested under controlled conditions, whereas the Body

  is its Familiar, Dynamic changing environment

  where it can escape, adapt, or fight and survive. 

  Otherwise the Petri Dish findings would have offered

  Fixed Solutions to the problems these creatures present…)

.

    4- Since Laboratory Research 

       -and my Personal Experiences-

                 have shown that 

        Oils Promote Growth of Malassezia

  i assume it would be wise for each individual

          to be certain about

  Which Type of Yeast they are Dealing with

  in Regards to Using Oils for Treatment

  and be mindful of the difference between

         a Petri Dish in a Laboratory

  and the Entire Dynamic Complexity of a Body

  and presence of Other Friendly or Hostile Flora.

.

    5- The above Lists and Information are Compiled Solely

  from Concise, Brief Candida Yeasts Research

  and Not on any Personal Experience or Assessments

  as is the case with the Malassezia Entries

  that are based on Long term Personal Experiences,

  Experimentations and Repeated Pattern Observations.

.

     6- The Lists  and Information above are Only to Illustrate

   a number of Malassezia and Candida

   similar to identical characteristics they present 

   as both being Yeast /Fungus Species.

   (Readers are Urged to Do their Own Research
