*READERS’ KEYWORD QUESTIONS*
Malassezia – All Salts+Water – and SEAWATER!
*Q1: * does sea salt kill Malassezia *
A: No It Does NOT!
I used it extensively, many packets, over many months
Directly on Body or Lesions heavy concentration.
Heals lesions quickly after Yeast has ended its cycle
but it does not kill Malassezia.
Similar Packet but Green colour
Still have some left over for other wound healing uses.
*Q1: * does saltwater get rid of malassezia furfur *
A: No It Does NOT!
*K: * salt water kills Malassezia yeast *
*K: * malessezia, epsom salt *
A: NO – Neither One Does!
I have used many packets of Epsom Salts
And mountainous quantities of:
Both in the Bath and in portable Foot Spa
Soaking my Feet for an hour
in as Cold or Hot water as i could stand
with Very high Concentration of Salts
Feet soaked till they were unbelievably red
and swollen hot or cold and wrinkled.
but 5 minutes after i had dried them
Malassezia would start tickling my toes – Not Kidding! 😦
Then i thought i discovered that Salt /Chlorine combination worked
after a brief Holiday in a Resort place with a salt water pool.
Long story short, months later moved out of home
rented there for an entire year and then discovered
the very Co$tly, Unpalatable and Inconvenient Truth
that Malassezia had been temporarily retreating
in my Internal areas during my swims.
and for a couple of hours after only to resurface and continue.
A Body Corporate decision to Lower the Pool temperature
and my health complications at the time
rather the relocation realisation
that forced me to return home where i tried
to recreate the Pool environment in the Bath tab
-as the penny had not fully dropped yet-
using Backetfuls of Sunray Pool Sea Salt
as well as 6-8 Ltrs of Fresh Seawater from the Beach
Actual Brand of Pool Salt used shown below.
I still have 2 x25 kg in our garage!
It was quite some time later and after close observation
that i eventually arrived fully at the above realisation
of Malassezia’ s Temporary Relocation
and from then on Focused my attention strongly
in the “Internal” patterns of comings and goings of the offender .
Having returned home i had also started early morning walks
down the Beach and there i discovered the Beneficial Magic of
Fresh Natural Seawater!….
Does it KILL Malassezia?
The answer is No!
Not Unless walking in Winter Ocean Cold water
at 16 C or below – for a Minimum of a Half hour!
But that would be the below Yeast survival Temperature
that does it and Not the Seawater or Salt.
Seawater Heals Lesions and Deters Malassezia
from settling in an area but does not kill it
unless perhaps is fully dipped in it for a long time.
