Malassezia ~ Another Accidental Discovery!


                 * UNDER THE MICROSCOPE *                    


                * Malassezia ~ Another Accidental Discovery! *



                          While looking at Photos in my Files

                            Suitable for the Previous Entry

                         Malassezia Furfur~ Yeast or Mycelia

I Found and enlarged the photo below in order to capture details

     and noticed something that had escaped my attention

      when preparing it for another Earlier Entry assignment


            The Photo below is of a Recent Faecal Sample

                showing the Presence of Yeast.

            What had escaped my attention previously

       was a long Green Hyphen – spread across the sample!

    Malassezia Faecal yeast and Hyphae 2 MD

          It is quite Similar to a Green Hyphen in the Eye

Malassezia Green Hyphae

The Green is one of the usually fluorescent Malassezia colours

but also possibly due to one of my recent ‘All Greens’ Diet Experiment.


   The next day while still thinking about the Green Colour

and how much could be attributed to Pityrialactone

 Malassezia and Pityriacitrin 2

and how much to my recent ‘All Greens’ Diet

there was a conveniently helpful memory flash

            of something long forgotten.

Some life time back, long before the A-TB illness

or having started any swimming or other exercise

except for frequent long walks for relaxation,

and when all was running fine, except of the occasional

Bladder Infection which never actually showed

in the Urine tests and could have been… irritation?

What kind of irritation? … i will not entered on to this.

So, i had gone to a GP – no established regular doctor

since my visits were only occasional and far in between.

I do not remember the reason/cause of the visit

but i remember two distinct points the Doc and I discussed:

1) The Urea Result

     was  below the Normal levels – on the Positive side

     and he told me he had never seen anything like that

     in his entire carrier and asked me about my diet

     (Tones of Fresh Fruits and Veggies as always).


2) At times – and at that Specific time of the Visit

    i used to get an Overall Orange Skin Hue.

    I used to Interpret it as Liver Distress due to

    anxiety, stress, worry, and all other micro-aliments

    or rather emotional responses to Life’s events

    that could produce and upset a Perfectionist Virgo.

    The Doc noticed it at the time and told him

    what i thought it was but he asked if i ate a lot of

    orange coloured fruits/vegies such as Carrots, Pawpaw.

    Carrots i did not,  but Pawpaw i did eat a lot.

     I was doubtful of his assessment but remained opened

     to the possibility and started to observe its periodic

     appearances and whether they coincided with

     any of the causes i attributed it – since i ate Pawpaw daily

     but the Hue was Not there Permanently.

     Observations proved me right …most of the time

     but there were those unexplained times that neither

     of the two cases could be considered as the contributor.


These days the same Hue is more Frequent and varies in scale

     between the Gray of Death as i have thought it

      believing at times that i have only days to live

             to Bright Orange i also used to attribute

    to Liver stress due to A -TB illness and medications

         to a Greenish Orange with some hint of Gray…

      which is of course unmistakable and has primarily

                           Only One Contributor!

     M CS- MD

     Her Evil Majesty!

    The Indications and Possibilities of all this, are

> The Yeast must have been Present but without any other

   accompanying symptoms attributable to it

  prior to either manifestation or knowledge of my Illness

  (up until the commencement of Antibiotics, X-rays etc)

> The Gray, unmistakable ‘end stage’ of its ‘amniotic’/Biofilm

                  dying and drying out.

>The Orange, definitely due to Pityrialactone

    with a slight possibility of partial contribution

    due to large intake of Yellow/Orange

    of Bananas, and Pawpaw

> The Green, again Pityrialactone

   with a slight possibility of partial contribution

   due to large intake of the ‘All Greens’ Diet.

     Malassezia Green Diet

                    The New Elements Coming to light

* The Gray was never detected as present or was not noticeable

* The Gray and the accompanying distinct Malassezia smell 

                became apparent only after the serious Outbreak

* The Green  other than as a mixed hue on the skin

    and also in the Samples and also in the Samples

    was also never detected until after several months

                            on the All Greens Diet.

* The Orange had been present on occasions of stress

   and detected way prior to establishment of Illness

   but without any other accompanying symptoms

   until after commencement of associated treatments.

* The Orange – back then- appeared to be

   more frequently associated with stress etc

   rather than the steady sizeable daily fruit consumption.


           Perhaps an indication that

> The Yeast tended to Proliferate

    During stress or Immunity taxing  times

    but checked back down  when normality returned

    therefore No Gray or Orange remained

    and was cleared off quickly.

> Orange or Green are Primarily prominent

a) By quantity of Yeast Presence

    and consequently amount of Pityrialactone

b) Possibility of some Food Ingredient Colour

Malassezia Furfur ~ Yeast or Mycelia



            Malassezia Q&A's MD 


                   * Malassezia Furfur ~ Yeast or Mycelia *


       Malassezia Faecal yeast and Hyphae 1 MD

                                  K1: *what is the difference

                  between malassezia yeast and malassezia flur*


                            IF i understand Correctly

                         a) From Research material:

         1) Either the Yeast does not always grow Hyphae

         2) Researchers had difficulty inducing it to do so in the Lab 

         3) Yeast Form does not always develop Hyphae

  Yeast or Mycelial MD

                                  (Click on Image to enlarge) 


  or b) From Microscope Observations of my Own Samples

      when it does, they are much smaller than the Mycelial Type.

         The Lesions also appear to be much smaller in size.


                 Below the Mycelial Hyphae are referred to 

                           as ‘Short Fungal Hyphae’

Malassezia spaghetti-meatballs

I am not sure where they get that because looking at my Mycelia ones

Malassezia Mycelia Hyphae MD

                       They Look anything but Short

               especially in comparison to the Yeast ones.


              Of course not being a Microscope Professional

               i must admit that i find it easier to differentiate

                       between the two types of Lesions

                     rather than the two types of Hyphae.

                   Having only observed my own samples

              I can still not be sure whether the differences i see

             between the quantities and sizes of  the Hyphae and Lesions

             of the Initial stages of outbreak and the current ones

             are due to a difference of Yeast and Mycelia

             as two different stages of Malassezia development


             a) An Improvement of my Skin Immunity

             b) A Reduction of Presence and Size and

             c) Inability of the Yeast to Develop to previous extensive levels

                 due to the Methods and Applications i have implemented

                 targeting Both Topical and General Immunity Improvement

                 and Inhibition of a Complete Malassezia Cycle

                 Not excluding of course the Possibility

                 of other contributing Factors i may not be aware of.


   K2: * fingernails turning dark from demodex *

Dirty Nails google image

        I m not sure if Demodex causes finger nails to turn dark

               but i know this is a sure Malassezia sign.

         It turns gray when its liquid carrier /Biofilm dries out

               and it is then harder to clean or wash off.


        Some time back i used to apply Oil Free Neutrogena

             but nowadays handling the Acidophilus mix

             when applying it to other areas of my Body

            does not allow any built up under the nails.


          If i had to treat it now i would dip my fingers/nails

           in Acidophilus Mix several times during the day

                      and particularly at Bed time  

      because of the additional benefits instead of Neutrogena.


            The photo displayed above is a Google image

                             and may or may not

                  have anything to do with Malassezia.


                      I do not have any Personal ones 

         with enough gray accumulation to be photographed


               Below is another Google image i picked

                    displaying the nails of a person

                believing them to be dirty from work

           despite -to their admitting- trying to clean them 

                  “with a cotton swap and alcohol

                 – and that only worked to a certain extent.

                     They still aren’t clean looking.”

       Nails Google image

           To me it looks like accumulation of Malassezia gray

              and progression to white grit  (trouble brewing!)

                  The fact that it can be visible to the eye

       and be photographed as well, indicates a serious case.

   The person is highly preoccupied with the look of the nails

                      in regards to Nail Polish ‘Beauty’

                and Totally Unaware of the lurking beast…

                I cringe thinking what they would reveal

                    looked under digital microscope

               when even perfectly healthy looking nails

                  can reveal being heavily infested.


                        ( Photo examples of my Nails 

                        comparing View with Naked Eye

                        against Revealing under Microscope ones

                        are posted in Related Earlier Entries.)


          K3: * how to kill malassezia from inside *                                                      

              I have not discovered anything yet

       that would kill Malassezia Internally as such

   and i am not sure whether there would be anything

     that would not be simultaneously too dangerous

                        for the Body as well

           so i have turned my efforts and attention

      into Building General Internal – External Immunity.

Malassezia – Between the Odd and the Meaningful…



           Malassezia Q&A's MD 

          * Malassezia – Between the Odd and the Meaningful… *


     Devil smile md


              When i first read a Keyword

     isolated from the Reader’s trail of thoughts

 i see it through my little Devil’s Eyes of Humour

   -if there is any trace of twisted humour in it-

   before i finally get to deal with its seriousness.


    I wonder if other Readers respond in the same way

    when reading through a List of Keywords

         in any particular Entry Presented.


   (Do not worry i do not intend to run a Poll about that

              I am resigned in the knowledge

     that sadly either No one cares to participate

    or peoples’ iPhones do not bring them to visibility)


     So, lets see what each of us sees in these Oddies below

          before i get into their serious sides.


                        List of Keywords


K1 *  stop demodex Australia *                                                                

K2: * does sea breeze soothe trichotillomania *

K3: * malassezia reacts air * . 

K4: * morgellons body lice * .                              .

K5: * malassezia essential oil *

K6: * malassezia capsules *

K7: * pictures of malassezia pills * .                          .

K8: * water filled vagina * .                          .

             K9: * malassezia black — women *

             K10: * malassezia black *   


  K11 * malassezia furfur in bladder *

  K12: *burning pin prick feeling, like acid burning on skin on leg*

  K13: *will sun and bright lights kill a yeast infection of the scalp*

                                           * * * 

                      K1 *  stop demodex Australia * 

Aussie Flag md


I don’t know if Australia can stop Demodex

or any country for that matter

but i know someone that is successfully managing

to Control Malassezia – with similarity of symptoms.

Perhaps some of the Methods implemented for Malassezia 

could prove Helpful in treating Demodex.


K2: * does sea breeze soothe trichotillomania *

      Kitty in breeze


During my Morning walks by the Sea some time back

i experienced Sea Breeze as a carrier of Life Giving Elements

both for the Body and the Soul and a True indisputable Soother

on many Levels from Spiritual downright to Physical.

                                                   .                                                    .

My Personal experience with the Urge to Pull Scalp hair

was Brief during a time of heavy Malassezia infestation

so i am not really in a position to offer any expert advise

on a matter as serious and complicated as TTM.


I imagine that Sea Breeze can offer some Brief Relief

but not much else as  a treatment alone.


Some Earlier ‘Hair and Scalp’ Entries in Both Blogs

may offer some helping solutions to TTM caused by Malassezia.


 K3: * malassezia reacts air *

 K13: *will sun and bright lights kill a yeast infection of the scalp*

                                        Holding Tight md

   Malassezia operates better in warm humid environment

        and avoids exposure to anything that threatens 

                          to Dry up its carrier Oil / Biofilm


  Air as in Wind would force it to Move quickly Under the Skin

                   and wait for the condition to change.


  Nothing much can really be achieved through air exposure

                       other than temporary relief.


                     K4: * morgellons body lice *    

    Moregellons MD.                     

It appears many Readers are confused about

– What Morgellons is

– What symptoms are connected with it, or

– What attributes to its manifestation as a Condition in Itself

   if one is to go by the Long List of Keywords

      presented in Earlier Entries

       Such as

– Morgellons Yeast

– Morgellons Fungus

– Morgellons Demodex

– Morgellons Scabies

– Morgellons Malassezia

  and the newly added

– Morgellons Body Lice

                As far as i know Morgellons and Body Lice

                      and any other one in the list above

                             are All Different Afflictions.


  Laughing md

                         New Malassezia …Products!

                         ( At your nearest Beauty Shop )

       Malassezia Oil MD

                      K5: * malassezia essential oil *    

                            ( Comes in three Colours )

1) Fluorescent Green

Guaranteed to make you Glow in the Dark!

2) Fluorescent Orange

To Burn and Itch your Skin like Fire

K12: *burning pin prick feeling, like acid burning on skin on leg*

           ( Yep! That’s exactly what i mean )

3) Dull Dead Gray

Make you Look like a Lizard

Make you Feel like a Lizard


                           And yes,

It does make one want to bite anyone in near vicinity 

                  (ask my poor husband 🙂 )


    I m guessing the Reader as usual is looking 

   for some ‘essential Oil’ that Kills Malassezia …

               I have already talked about Oils 

           and my own experiences repeatedly 

               in several Entries in Both Blogs.

Of course one may easily dispute my personal findings

    over a Four year period of Observations

      and Lessons Learned the hard way

        but Ignoring Laboratory Findings

       one  may do so at their own Peril.

      So here is one Reminder i will present again.

Malassezia and Lipids 1-R

                                       (Click on Photos to enlarge)

Malassezia and Lipids 2 -R

There is a serious message that comes from the above!

a) It Requires Oil as a medium for its Growth

b) It Settles itself nicely wherever it can find it!…

Anyone thinking it cannot go anywhere else but the eye brows?

Anyone still interested in providing it with ‘Fatty Substances’?

                   Or talking about ‘essential Oil’

             (Any) ‘Essential Oil’ … for Its growth?


 ( b) It Settles itself nicely wherever it finds it!… Fat, Humidity, Blood etc)

  K11 * malassezia furfur in bladder *

Yes, it often lodges in the urethra and occasionally if circumstances

are unfavourable in the privates area it does get in the Bladder.

It feels like having a Bladder infection causing the urge for frequent

urination but it does not sting as a typical infection usually does.

The urine also feels kind of ‘thicker’ than usual.

I have used Vitamin C Powder ½ flat tsp orally and has worked.


                          More New Products

                 ( At your nearest Health food Shop )

                          Malassezia Evil MD

                   K6: * malassezia capsules *

                   K7: * pictures of malassezia pills *

                               Three times Daily

                             With or without meals

                   Guaranteed to make Life Miserable


                               Again, I m guessing

          The Reader was after a Pill that kills Malassezia

          The Seeker of ‘Pictures of Malassezia Pills’ though

                …is just a Mystery for my poor Brain, Lol!


Hose md

                 K8: * water filled vagina *

I believe this refers to an Entry where i mention periodic internal

Vaginal douching and sponging when Malassezia gets too much

           and then inserting an Acidophilus Capsule.

 Other than that i have no idea what the Reader might mean


Blood Blisters in Genitals

         K9: * malassezia black — women *

         K10: * malassezia black *

       This looks like two Keywords by the same Reader

   possibly researching about Black looking dark Maroon Specks

     or more likely Blood Filled Blisters in Female genitals.


 More Info regarding this issue and all other Keywords above

          can be found in Earlier Entries in Both Blogs.


  A fly on screen

( I have just discovered that Word Press has improved Editing

  to  display animated Gifs instead of only Static Pictures.

Nice as it is, i dread to think what the effect in some of my

Earlier Entries might be if all animated Gifs have been

automatically activated to animated status due to this change…)

Malassezia ~ Wine … Dine and …Burp!



        Malassezia Readers Keywords and Answers


     * Malassezia ~ Wine … Dine and …Burp! *   

Malassezia Dine                               

   Some of these questions i have partly answered  

            in several previous Entries

 K1: malassezia beer

 Malassezia Burp

         Beer, Wine, Champaign, Whiskey, Vodka or just Ginger ale…

Malassezia  would not mind sharing a glass or two with anyone willing to oblige!

The drinker would get drunk and Malassezia would utilise sugar/alcohol content

for her proliferating party. Lets get drank Baby and have …Baby Clone Sisters!


  Not Funny? … Ok i agree …it isn’t!… It is definitely Serious!


    If we are talking about using Beer Externally

one would have to make a Rich Poultice and Place it on the area.

I have my doubts it would do anything other than temporarily

give the impression of soothing, as Malassezia will duck under the skin

and wait for it to dry or be removed, or simply move away from that spot

in which case a healthier alternative is preferable for the area than beer

and a Risk that the Result may turn out Opposite to the Expected

      and rather Favourable to Malassezia, as is the case with many

      alcohol type ingredients containing cosmetic/hygiene products…


No Beer let alone anything stronger in this house, 

so i have not tried it  but i believe from similar experiences

where the content had been some type or other of alcohol 

that once it evaporates it may attract more back in the area

                        …. Anyone willing to try?….


If on the other hand we are talking about Drinking the Beer

i would think it is best to Keeping Alcoholic drinks down

                           If not Completely OUT…  

There is a related message in the Entry

      105- Malassezia ~ Pro-Biotic Warning (PT 2) regarding Yeasts

including Bread and Wine making ones … worth taking into consideration


K2: does lemon juice kill massanzeia yeast

Malassezia -Lemon juice

To my Experience – No it doesn’t!

Taken Internally has No Noticeable effect

Applied Externally it upsets and causes it to Relocate

and when dried out it attracts more in the area  


      K3: does black tea kill Malassezia

            Malassezia -Black Tea

To my Experience – No matter how ‘Black’ it is. 🙂 Lol! … it doesn’t!

My Man Drinks it Daily as well as Green Tea

I have used tones of it in the Bathtub including the Tea Bags.

May sooth the area temporarily but it is deceptive as Malassezia

is mobile and either moves away or ducks under skin until irritant is removed 


      K4: cinnamon for Malassezia

          Malassezia - Cinnamon

         K5: vegetables for malassezia

    Vegetables, Meat, Fish, Pork, Poultry

         Milk, Chilly, Pepper, Salt, Spices

               and Cinnamon on Top!…

‘She’ is Not Fussy… One can Feed ‘Her’ Anything…

In the End she chooses her Own and Flourishes 


         K6:  malassezia in cheese

        Malassezia and Cheese

                     K7: foods that contain malassezia yeast

    K8: food Malassezia


I had never so far considered the possibility of Foods containing Malassezia…

I know certain Fermented Foods are Processed by Yeasts (Saccharomyces)

          such as Bread, Wine, Beer and Fermented Vegetables 

                    ( Malassezia ~ Pro-Biotic Warning (PT 2) )

           but i know not -of or IF- any contain Malassezia

 Neither that that there may be such thing as …‘Food’…Malassezia (a typo?)

              Who would want to Eat it?…

Of course if it is contained in foods then we all do, like it or not

Since its cruel acquaintance i had always considered Malassezia 

as a Skin Yeast initially, and as Intestinal one, after closer observations

but the possibility of it as a Food Yeast never crossed my mind 

other than in trying to discover if / how it uses Foods directly 

or its derived Elements indirectly via the different ways available to it, 

for its Own Purposes (Photo 3) while Lab Research reporting

is somewhat contradictory regarding Sugars, to my understanding

or is there perhaps something i am missing between these two statements?

                                   i e: 

1) Not much is known on how Malassezia Utilises Sugars

2) Malassezia does Not Ferment Sugars

                       Perhaps meaning

    It will not help digest your dinner, nor ferment your bread, beer or wine

but will feed on it ferociously for its own construction and multiplying purposes 

      (Utilises Sugars 70% for the construction of its Cell )

 K9: Malassezia Potato Juice

  Malassezia and Potato Juice

Assuming we are talking about RAW Potato Juice and in some quantity

No…i  have not been brave enough to try it.

I would have done so had i felt it would be effective in a somewhat Big way

and without any other side effects to the Body, i e Kidney, Liver, stomach etc.


I have tried eating semi-raw potato which mysteriously enjoyed thoroughly

and still do – but again much like any other edibles no striking difference.

I had also tried briefly -quite some time back- raw Potato Poultice. 

        Messy and unsustainable for repeated treatment… 


 K10: malassezia furfur, food to avoid

I have already dealt with Elements i consider as should be avoided

mentioned in several Previous Entries and Updated and listed in :

  Malassezia – How and Why It Thrives!


K11: diet to stop malassezia furfur

K12: foods that fight malassezia furfu

K13: does diet affect malassezia yeast production?

     Malassezia and Meals MD

No Diet or Specific Isolated Item/s i know of

have had any decisively Eliminative effect

but i have observed some Noticeable changes

with my Recent Diet and switching type of Meals

See Entries: 

Malassezia ~ Diet – Choice Between ‘Two Evils’

Malassezia ~ Diet that made it Submit…Temporarily!


    K14: why the body craves foods that feed malessezia

Malassezia and Cravings

Good question! – I have noticed that tendency myself

sometimes even craving for things i would not normally eat.

I Believe this is because Malassezia Robs the Body of Nutrients


It is hard to tell if the craving caused by lack of certain elements

is raised from Malassezia leeching Body reserves, or the Body itself

trying to compensate and which one will derive most of the Benefit.

If the craving is for Nutritionally Rich Food i go along and provide it

If it is fancy i decline the source and work out what elements may be

contained that i can provide from a healthier source and i do so.

Malassezia wins in either case … or almost!…


I ll give an example which i have noticed and suspected related

but have not been able to pin in the ‘absolutely certain’ category

so i have not mentioned before:


Forced to change my Diet during the past year after a serious health crisis

 and unable to consume any Protein since, i.e No Yoghurt or Goat milk

i noticed that gradually Malassezia’s large, thick crystalline gritty grains

changed in size and quality

During the Dairy (Calcium Providing) times they were large 

immediately visible to the Naked Eye,

produced Intense Crawling sensation long Blood filled hyphae

and where they succeeded they also created Large size cheesy lesions.

During this past year, as it appears by the recently obtained Samples

collected from the Orange/Green Biofilm as well as other Body/Fluid areas

and viewed under Both Microscopes, they are much smaller

and felt so when rubbed on the fingers

and the Hyphae, where there are any, are  Shorter

and if manage to stick on the skin they produce Tiny lesions

comparable to Scratch lines size or small Fluid filled Bubbles  


On a parallel my bones have also shown the strain of Calcium / Mineral

shortage with series of broken ribs produced by a mere sneeze

or just leaning over my side to reach something.

(A warning to anyone prone to Osteoporosis)


Fortunately the Mango Season, once more like Every Year

over the Past Decade has become the Saviour Rich in Natural Minerals

providing adequate Calcium /Minerals …for Both of us!…

My Bones have stabilised, my nails and hair are growing like weeds, lol!

and i am starting to feel Malassezia grits getting more substantial in size

and visible. I have been juggling the situation all throughout Summer

alternating between days of only 1 Fruity /Mango meal and two Greenies

and days of reversing to keep the Balance between Bones and Body needs

and Malassezia keeping in miniature size and unable to stick on the skin…

Unfortunately the Mango Season is now to its end and i m left with

one more week’s supplies and soon back to a different round of the problem ..


So to return to the Point : Malassezia gets the Elements it needs anyway

unless there is under-supply in which Both Body and Malassezia

suffer the consequences … and the Individual gets crazy with Cravings! …


K15:  sulfur malassezia furfur

I have not tried it either Internally or Externally

due to side effects and very poor clearance rate off the Body.

I have Only Used it for a few weeks in the Bathtub with no noticeable results.

   Malassezia Utilises Sulphur for the Construction of its Cell

Malassezia and Sulfur

All the Greenies i Crave provide Plenty of Safe Bio-available Sulphur!

      Malassezia Robbing my Body thus Creating the Craving?

Malassezia: What The Photos Reveal – (PT 1)



This slideshow requires JavaScript.


  * Malassezia: One -Two or Many*

  * What The Photos Reveal – PT 1*    


        In the Days way Back, before the Malassezia Identification

 i had the Distinct Sense i was dealing with Two Different ‘Creatures’

 with the same –yet not quite– Behaviour and Symptoms.


Even after Identification and Confirmation i still felt the same.

It was only after closer Observations and as the fragmented Pieces

started to come together that i finally came to see and regard it all

as “Stages Of Development” of the Same Creature, i e Malassezia Furfur

with its More than one names, to add to the overall confusion …


Having confirmed and established this as a fact through observations 

and whatever other means available, my position has not changed since 

except for a Belief or Feeling that there is still a Missing Link

connecting the patterns and stages that somehow have been eluding me.


   When i recently came upon this Piece of Information below

                      i realised the Missing Link was 

 Connecting the Yeast Stage – To the Mycelia / Fungus  One…. 

      M stages

The Researchers have since moved on from this position

into trying to establish different Taxonomic Divisions and Classifications

for a more defined or agreeable common ground of Identification Process

due to which a lot of Research must now be Repeated… etc.


I will not pretend i wholly or even sufficiently understand all that

and i am neither here -nor am i qualified- to question or contradict

either their methods or existence of different Malassezia sub-species.


For Myself  though since i have still remained in the same position

i wanted to check more systematically the Common Characteristics

presented in Samples Collected from Different Parts of My Body

in Regards to My Own Body Specifically – as i cannot know,

speak or check other people’s except perhaps of my

‘Silent Guinea Pig’ partner, whose several samples

i have already published in earlier Entries in the *Malassezia Blog*

and are so very much alike my Own despite the difference

in Severity of Symptoms – His  a lot Milder than mine.


In carrying on this Project, i thought rather than including Links

Referring and Connecting to Relevant Entries already published

thus Sending the Reader in a tedious Back and Forth cycle, to instead

Present here the Photos Related to this Topic with Brief comments

as well as New Ones – Not been Published Before.

Malassezia: SeaSalt-Salt+Water… or Seawater! – QA



   Malassezia Q & A s


 Malassezia – All Salts+Water –  and SEAWATER!


Malassezia and Sea


*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.


Malassezia and Celtic Salt


Similar Packet  but Green colour

Still have some left over for other wound healing uses.


*Q1:  * does saltwater get rid of malassezia furfur *


Malassezia and Salt


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:


  Malassezia and Rocksalt


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.


looking like Malassezia and soaking Dogs

          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!


Malassezia and Poolsalt


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


 Malassezia and Seawater


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.
