Malassezia Coconut Calamity 4 

 

  Below the Two Shampoo Containers Side by Side

 My Regular on the Left – The New one on the Right

Minor Design Changes are easily observed

     such as an Improved Lighter Pump…

Malassezia and Shampoo1

and a Red droplet? of supposedly …silky hair???

 

    But then looking closer i noticed something

                            that could Possibly be an indicator

                             of a more Significant Change 

    in the Contents of the Shampoo ….

Malassezia and Shampoo 2

 Contains Zinc Pyrithione 1% w/w

   Was ‘Zinc P’ Dropped or Reduced???

Would they have left out of Prominent display

                          Such an Important Ingredient

                        for an aesthetic look of the Bottle?…

 

Then i Checked the List of Ingredients on Both Containers

                                to see how they Compared 

 

   Top: The Old one – Bottom: The New one

Malassezia and Sampoo Ingredients

 

      Exactly same Number and Name of Ingredients

but Volume / Weight / Percentage of Each is Not listed

to afford comparison / confirmation of Changes – IF any…

            

Perhaps as long as all Ingredients are listed

there is no requirement listing percentages

        and /or changes in formula.

            

A Lot of ‘Lethal’ ingredients in the List of Contents

       – much like most other Shampoos –

    which i elected not to research to avoid the horror

  that comes with the knowledge of the detail

             except for two –below– that might be related

                        to the indicators of Change.

 Indicators:

 –  Strong, ‘Thick’ Coconut (Oily) Fragrance

–  Oily ‘Heavy’ Feel of Bath Water

–  New Yeast Proliferation on every inch of my Scalp/Body

    (similar to my Previous OIL Experience) *

 

Possible Related Ingredients:

  * COCAMIDE MEA

  Malassezia and COCAMIDE

                All Shampoos i have checked so far contain

    – often more than one Coconut Fatty acids in some Form and Name –

so the difference would be in the Proportionate weight / volume etc

    to the other ingredients especially the number and quantity

           of other type of Oils and of total shampoo weight.

 

   * FRAGRANCE:

Is it … ‘The’…  Coconut one that drove me Crazy???

 

In a Guessing Game of Possibilities 

i can see a number of Potential Combinations

 of ‘Increased / Decreased / Unchanged’ ingredients.

 

    And again, in a Guessing Game of Possibilities

going by the Indications and Effects on my Scalp and Body

i would guess there is a Definite Coconut Related Change

whether as ‘Fragrance’ or ‘Cocamide MEA’ or Other Type

and Possibly – also guessing – a Reduction in Zinc potency

   indicated by the Omission of  ZP 1% w/w on the New Container

              rather than on result and effects noticed

        much too complicated and even harder to verify

             no matter if or how obvious they might be.

 

Now because the Strong Smell was the Only established indication

        of change, while the other two could have a different cause

and because i never like jumping into quick conclusions and risk falsity

             i decided to Continue using it for a Few More Days

              and watch for results like a hawk from every angle

making sure it had been trialled for at least a full week as a minimum

   or until the detrimental effect got too strong and too painful levels

          and having to face longer fight and distress in my hands.

When i made sure it was getting worse and was too obvious

              that there was no other lead to any other source 

         i simply gave it up.

 

              I could have phoned the company to find out … or not…

but i prefer to go by the results on my Body that can detect the minutest

offences much like the Princess and the Pea under the 8th mattress!…

 

    Even if there was no significant change and only fragrance added

       i simply and regrettably cannot stand the overpowering smell

       unless there were any strong indications against Malassezia 

                    rather than as Negative  as are standing 

                       i prefer to avoid any unnecessary risk

                                        and in the end

                  Zinc Pyrithione alone cannot help much

    especially drowned among other Opposing or Neutralising elements

     such as Cocoa Fats, Fragrant Oils, Methyl /Acetyl Alcohols etc

                    already present as it is in most shampoos.

 

        The reason i have written all this in such detail is that

        i have been mentioning this particular H&S Shampoo

                  as Effective and one of my Daily helping tools

         and this may have prompted some people to try it 

           or come to rely on it as a partial solution to their problem

                      so i feel i have an obligation to report

  in order that each person can be aware of possible changes

        watch out for any effect on their particular problem

       IF of course the Formula on their side of Planet

              has happened to have Changed as well.

 

            For myself i decided reluctantly to simply Jump Ship

    and have gone back to an old harmless Baby Body Wash i used

      before i replaced it with the H&S – and i am now on the lookout

          for a new Shampoo while using sparingly the Old H&S

            which i pinched and exchanged with my husband

        whose Body is better equipped in fighting of Malassezia.

 

             Since i dropped it and went back to the Old one

                             Peace has been restored

                     All is Clear and Near Normal again!

 

Incidentally, while preparing this entry i have been surrounded all day

by the same Coconut cloud and wandering where is it coming from

then remembered that while i was transferring both Old and New

Containers form our Bathrooms in order to take the above Photos,

i was cradling them with my arm and leaning them onto my Chest

so i would not drop them, and the Coconut cloud been emanating from

the Front of my Jumper and Sleeve where the New One was leaning on…

 

The Baby Wash i Used before i replaced it with the H&S Shampoo

      Kids Body Wash M

Kids Body Wash T

It too contains Cocamide DEA and some other evil things

but i know not of a better alternative at this stage 😦 😦 

 

I have been using it in the Bath on its own and for Scalp and Hair

as 1/2 and 1/2 with the remaining Old H&S while it lasts

              – and so far i have had No problems.

All back to Normal and Clear and almost as quiet as before 

   It is sold at Woolworth’s and Cole’s Supermarkets

     and some Chemists … here in the “Down Under”

 

     In the mean time i am on the search for a suitable shampoo

              with the Lowest possible Oil Content

                        and hopefully Problem Free

         Otherwise i will use the Baby Wash for All areas

Malassezia Coconut Calamity 1

 

 

For Several Months now and throughout several Entries

   i have mentioned i had been Lucky to have found

Two Good Probiotic Formulas and One Good Shampoo

    which i have been Using and Relied upon heavily 

      as part of my Daily Routine and Maintenance

– together with the application of Seawater and YAM-

   in keeping a practically Sore and Lesion Free Body

 and tolerably Low Levels of Malassezia Presence and Activity

  

            I only recently deviated slightly – or so i thought 

                    seeking an even greater improvement

                          using a Different Probiotic 

                    and Same Brand Variation Shampoo

                 Both of Stronger dosages in the Ingredients

                supposed to help produce these good results.

 

               Alas, it was a Highly Regrettable move

                 for which i paid a memorable price

                        as Detailed in the Entry:

       “Malassezia Treatment-Relocation- Attack

 

                      After the Unexpected Nasty Surprise

              i Discontinued Both and posted in a following Entry

                    a Possible Probiotic Formula Ingredient

             that may have contributed to the sudden onslaught

                in conjunction with the variation of  Shampoo.

When i started to recover i Re-tested the suspected Shampoo again

        in order to make absolutely sure it was part of the problem

                  and not just caused by the Probiotic itself 

but what followed was the Return of the same Negative indications

 

                   Right after finally sorting out the causes

                   i am now faced with the New Challenge

   this time from my Regular and up until now Reliable Shampoo

      ‘Head and Shoulders’ – Smooth and Silky-Zinc Pyrithione!

 

             As i have mentioned before in several entries

         i used it not only as Shampoo for the Head / Hair 

                  but in the Bath and as Hand wash 

        and practically as a replacement of soap generally…

 

I had just recovered from the latest result of the initial Malassezia attack

      and back in good ground having cleared lesions and sores

                  and reached Lower levels of threat

       though still some signs of ‘Orange’ production 

                        evidenced on my clothes.

  

Then my Man brought home a slightly different container of H&S Shampoo

announcing a Change of the Pump and a Noticeable jump in Price.

       I Liked the new Pump and did not care about the Price

since it was producing good results allowing me some better life

                    so i eventually forgot all about it.

 

             I could not exactly recall which day i changed

              from the Old H&S shampoo to the New one 

                – i had no Reason to mark it …Had I???

                    except that after a couple of days 

i started to notice a series of weird and bothersome events:                                                       

1) Something in the house wafted Strong Coconut Fragrance

       all around me, whatever part of the house i went

                       all throughout the day.

     I thought perhaps coming form the people downstairs

     deodorising their carpets or having their luxurious Coconuty Shower

     and it followed me like a Perfumed Puff Cloud around the house

     even in the evenings when we closed most windows and doors, etc.

 

 2) Yeast started to Spring from Practically Every Inch of my Body

     as if it was a Baking Loaf of Bread on the Rise!…

     and most of all,  my Scalp felt like a Maniacal Nursery

                     of Newly ‘hutched’ Yeast!…

    This caught my serious attention and put me on Alert!!

                        There was No Doubt

           Something was Wrong Somewhere

                        but what and where

        since there had been no change i could think of

                          – or was there…?

 

 3) The Foam in the Bathtub seemed to disappear quickly

     water turning ‘heavier’ much greasier looking than usual

            despite same amount of Shampoo Squirts.

 

          Then an accidental but Fortunate minor Spill

                      of the New Shampoo Pump 

   was the lucky incident and the clue that had evaded me

        and helped reveal the cause of the above nuisances

                   especially the Coconuty Smell:

 

  After i had wiped the Spill with my Finger, i did not wash it

   leaving any Shampoo residue on it as a Yeast deterrent.

Then within a few minutes i noticed that whenever my hand

came close to my face the Coconut smell seemed to intensify…

       …or rather … come straight from my FINGER!…

         So Overwhelmingly Strong for both my liking

               as well as my Poor Sensitive Lungs

that even the Coconuts themselves Rolled their eyes in disbelief…

   Malassezia Coconut Calamity 2 

My Old Regular Shampoo had a rather delicate Flowery fragrance

that lasted a few minutes while handling it but never intrusive 

when used to wash my hands etc – while the steam in the bath

         seems to have a blocking or obscuring effect

on both the delicate as well as the strong fragrance of the New one

        making it harder to detect and place it earlier.

 

        So, i deliberately sniffed the coated Finger repeatedly

             to make sure this was definitely the source

              that carried the same constant fragrance

which had been following me for the past few days.

           There was absolutely NO doubt that this was IT!…

           and the wafting Coconutty Smell all around me

      had been coming from my very Own Head and Body!

                

     I Cannot describe how Dismayed and Frustrated i was…

 

   Malassezia Coconut Calamity 3

 

I proceeded immediately to Check and Compare the List of Ingredients

    in both Old  and New Shampoo Containers for any listed changes.

Malassezia Research and Attitude – DM

                    *

*DAILY MAINTENANCE*

Malassezia Maintenance

*

*Malassezia – Research and Attitude *

     researching Malassezia

 

Attitude can be a Tremendous Helper or a Stumbling Block of Impediment.

   In understanding and dealing correctly with the Malassezia problem

  I am very much like any average, person, wanting something to happen

         Right Now and with the Minimal Expenditure of Energy,

                     Effort or Inconvenience, as any other…

and these Keywords below could very well have been mine

–if they had not already been in deed –as this was my Initial attitude

that lasted for a long unproductive time not only inhibited progress

and lead to it through immense Pain and Extremely High Financial Cost.

 

Malassezia to kill

 

‘quickest cure for Malassezia’

‘how do i get rid of malassezia’

‘kill malassezia’

‘what will kill malasezzia fungus’ 

And so many other alike

 

     So i often wonder about different types of personalities 

and what attitudes can be Helpful or Inhibiting, for each Reader.

I do not mean to preach on any one – i mean to draw attention

to the Right attitude than can lead faster to better understanding

and of dealing more effectively with such a persistent problem

      

 Attitude 1 – Quick Fix

 

      Malassezia quick search

 

As i have described my own self above, is looking for a One Off

‘Quick Pill’ – No fuss, No mess, No effort, No inconvenience

that fixes the problem permanently and go back to living happily ever after.

This means Scanning through the Entries quickly Missing or Dismissing

a lot of Crucial Info, grubbing one piece or another of mentioned treatment

–isolated from the entirety or part of treatment– and going away

adapting it further still to one’s own convenience and expecting it

                           to be the one that will work!…

 

This of course is not the right attitude and not productive for achieving results.

Malassezia goes on, adapting and bypassing every little pebble or rock

of impediment placed in front of it and any person soon finds out in frustration

that there was more on those pages that may have been overlooked

and return to read again but still holding on to the same attitude

       of a ‘Quick – No trouble – Permanent Fix.’

 

Attitude 2 – Mix and Match  

 

     Malassezia adapting methods

 

Preferring to take control of the choices presented,

with more zeal and attention to detail but equally eager

 for a ‘Quick- not too much mess- Fix’ and as well missing

         or dismissing crucial helpful Information,

   believing that combining, adapting or omitting things 

                a result can be achieved faster.

More Normal attitude but still not quite what is required 

for dealing with Malassezia.

 

  Just a couple of small examples:

1- Where i refer to Seawater many Readers interpret

     or elect substituting with Salt + Tap Water

  

2- Where i refer to Neutrogena clearing Malassezia caused Dead Skin 

   many Readers have interpreted and tried it as a Cure for Malassezia                                                                                                                                                                                                          

                                     3- The Right Attitude:

        Patient ‘Researcher wise Owl’ Style

 

Malassezia thorough research

 

Slow, thorough and methodicalgathering information carefully

considering the depth of the meaning and its implications

without resistance or rejection of any notion presented

and willing to test the Essential Requirements that can confirm

Producing as Close to the Desired Results as can be Possible

with a Problem as Tough, Highly Persistent, Invasive and Pervasive

            Internally and Externally on the whole Body

           as well as Highly Evasive to the eyes of Observer

           and Resistant to Treatments,  as Malassezia is …

 

I sincerely hope that there are –for their own benefit– some Lucky Readers

                that already possess by Nature the Right Attitude

   for meeting the challenge of this Tough and Highly Persistent Problem

                which took me near Three Full Years to develop

     dealing with inherit resistance which proved more Troublesome

                 and way less Helpful than what i was striving for

                  and causing me to miss Crucial Understanding

        that was right in-Front of my Eyes

 —

                      When we bought our Digital Microscope

                     and had our first glimpse of my fingertips

                     while my man spontaneously exclaimed

                         ‘Gees! …this Looks like FUNGUS!’

    i was myself in utter disbelief and Impenetrable Resistant Denial,

                                              thinking

‘ No way i could possibly have such horror on my skin … and moving!…’

so i promptly dismissed the idea until a lot later when we finally bought

the Biological Microscope and the reality of the ‘dismissed horror’ started

to become more clear – sending me back to the Digital to observe anew

                           and without resistance this time.

It was then that i could see it in its liquid stage and its peculiar behaviour

 and response to the heat and light emanated from the D /Microscope.

              The same was observed on my man’s fingers.

 

   The more solid form and the hyphae, as well as the abundant

                    spherical shapes surrounding them

         came with the viewing of the Biological Microscope

               of samples collected from different areas,

                  some already viewed under the DM.

 

       It is only when all resistance was finally pulled back

   that i started to understand better and could move forward 

     but still with the same fixed mentality of having to kill it

   by any means –  and resistance accepting that even if i did 

                    it might still make No difference

         and It could/would continue to live and reproduce 

                           on and inside my body…

 

When this fact was accepted i could finally turn my attention

on how to start protecting rather than keep harming my Body

by endlessly chasing a killer solution for Malassezia

                       and find Healthier ways

                      to Relieve the Symptoms

       and Control Malassezia Presence and Activity

as much as possible and minimise Pain and Inconvenience

           not to mention the emotional Roller-coaster

    from high ignorant hope to utter despair of factual truth …

 

                        Now, more often than not 

               when i Do something i Do it Knowing

                  when, how and what to expect 

and being realistic as to how much can be achieved or for how long.

Now i can safely say i am about 95% in control throughout the day

and only partially vulnerable during the night when in deep sleep

still enjoying maximum protection by my usual daily helpers

applied just before bed time and often visiting the bathroom at night.

      I have now unpacked Both Microscopes at the ready

and have more photos with what appear to be new revelations

and some confirming previous theories or interpretations of photos,

stages or events, which will be presented in upcoming entries.

Malassezia – Product Clarification and Warning -DM

 

   *DAILY MAINTENANCE *

Malassezia ~ Product Clarification and Warning *

 

Throughout my Entries i have been mentioning the use of two products

that have been highly helpful controlling Malassezia presence and symptoms.

 

Always striving for Perfection in my methods

and with keen observations for New Discoveries

        i recently made Two Alternative Additions to these Products

       with surprisingly strong indication of them turning out detrimental

                     as detailed in the Entry

       

       “ Malassezia: Treatment- Relocation – Attack ”

 

          In order to Ascertain that the findings were True

        and not coincidental or owed to other circumstances 

             i have conducted a Three Week Experiment

                         using One Exclusively 

       as well as in Combination with the Regular type.

The results were as bad as initially discovered and suspected

        therefore i feel i ought to make some Clarifications

        for the Benefit of Readers’ knowledge.

 

      The Products i have mentioned throughout as Highly Helpful

                                            have been

 

‘Head and Shoulders’ Zinc Pyrithione Shampoo

 ‘Smooth and Silky’

 

Malassezia Scalp SS

 

and

 

                     Two Different Brands

       of Probiotic Acidophilus Bifidobacteria

 

 Malassezia Probiotics

    

The Probiotic alternative i have Not tested alone since the initial trial

   due to fear of a Firing Repeat, so i will not mention about it here

                     other than Re-post an Information detail

                       related to Some Probiotic products                                               

.

                            (Click on Image to Enlarge)

Malassezia and Boulardii Yeast

                     See also Acidophilus in Lung Experiment

The   ‘Head and Shoulders’ Zinc Pyrithione Shampoo alternative

   is a MEN’s One as shown below

 

Malassezia Scalp M

 

              And it has caused me so much regrettable grief

                      of not just of inconvenient Relocation 

                         but of Fierce Scalp Re-infestation

         and quite the opposite of the regular ‘Smooth and Silky’

   which has never caused any detectable trouble in any area used

 

Below pictured – and trialled alone, mixed and alternately

 

Malassezia Scalp SSM3

 

Please Note: 

These are my Personal findings Positive and Negative

and may not apply to other users…

 

And since a picture is worth a thousand words, here is yesterday’s sample

of Relocation from Head to Shoulders and upper Chest, to mention the least

 

This is my Night Vest and the Scattered Malassezia all over it

(Chest  and Back Upper Shoulder  area)

      without occurrence of even a drop of perspiration…

Malassezia on Vest 1 MD

Malassezia on Vests 2 MD

 

                                        The Result?…

     Some tiny lesions along the shoulder either side of the neck

    During the Night of course – as i currently sleep about 5-6 full hours

 

   (The Less active the Yeast the more i Sleep )

  

It has been quite some time as mentioned in earlier entries

       since i had to apply any preventative treatment

 in the upper trunk area as there had been No need whatsoever.

 

Additional Relocation and Offence has also occurred again

        during this Three week experimental period

                       in the Eye and Ear areas

    just as i had resolved and cleared the initial attack.

 

   “ Malassezia: Treatment- Relocation – Attack

 

    The worst part of it is the fierce re-infestation within just a few hours…

      I have spent the past three weeks – during testing and confirming –

                              Scratching my Head madly

    from just a few hours after my bath / head wash, into the late evening.

 

   It appears -much like with All Deterring / Causing Relocation Products-

     that some of the Ingredients are Not suitable for Malassezia settling

   but highly Re- inviting a short time After the Initial effect!…

 

   Only Acidophilus does Not Do that on the Scalp – or any other area.

 

       Personally i need No more Proof…

Malassezia T4

 

In the Bath and / or Directly on the Body – (Topical Results)

* Laundry Detergent

* Pool Salt in bath water when seawater not available.

* Mineral tablets in bath water whensea water not available

* Bicarbonate Soda

* Natural Sea Salt (Celtic)

* Epsom salts 

* Alfalfa, Wheat Grass, Barley Greens

* Charcoal Tablets

  ( Some  More Aggravating or No Effect whatsoever )

 

Some Methods Used

Water Bombs with a richly wet facecloth

  (LOL! when i was a Naïve Newbie and did not know the right way to do it)

Hair Drier , Heater and Cool Fan

   (Deterring until Area returned to normal temperature – Cool Fan Ineffective)

* Extremely Hot Water or  Air – ( No Difference )

* Extremely Cold Water – wash /dip in wash basin   ( No Difference )

   (Perhaps if emerged area for an hour in ice blocks

   and manage to avoid hypothermia, clotting, heart attack etc….

   would such risk be worth the effort to treat topically only and temporary?)

* Extremely Cold Water –  walking in the Sea

    (Highly Effective especially when temperature 16 C)

* TENS Machine (Transcutaneous Electronic Nerve Stimulation)

   Topically Effective -Drawback: the pads are coated with glue gel

   thus re-inviting yeast when currents stop

 

* Dousing and Treating Internal Vagina area

   (Temporary relief but not effective clearing)

* Inserting Vitamin C powder -tablet

   (Appears Malassezia likes acidity – seems to attract instead of repel)

* Inserting Salt and Soda individually and together –(Made no difference)

* Clotrimazol Cream as well as Tablet

   (Tablet only may have been OK but not available in quantity.

   Cream was a disaster of Malassezia attraction due to its emollient basis.)

* Inserting Antibiotic tablets -Temporary deterrent

* Inserting Cotton Wool  ( to keep area totally Dry)

   (Initially deterring while dry -Malassezia avoids dry- then becomes inviting

   due to its hair/fibre like quality and moisture absorption.

 

* Creating Environmental ‘Arctic Effect’

   (Winter 5-8 Celsius during Night- No heating-leaving window/door open

   and turning the fan on – no Blanket no pyjamas just light vest and knickers)

   No Effect on Malassezia – could easily come with me to the North Pole…

* ‘Heat Effect’ – Using Hair Drier on High

– On Head/ Scalp

– Near as close as possible to delicate Private areas

– Anywhere where a crawling sensation was felt

  (And while i was getting singed i could hear Malassezia laughing!)

 

* Intentional Perspiration Drenching

– Turning On Electric Blanket on High All Night

– Long Flannelette winter pyjamas

– Woollen Beanie on head

– Covering Body with Quilt plus Blankets

   (This certainly brought it out of all areas but did not do it any harm

   Perhaps the heat threatened it or perspiration /humidity stimulated it.

   One beneficial result was that a lot of Malassezia Gray /Orange sticky

   was on my Clothes rather than on my Body)

Malassezia on Clothes 1 MD

 

* Heat Soak – Nail Brush Scrub- with Pyrithione Zinc

  (Seems to be a moderately effective control on both body and scalp

  It is still  part of my daily routine.

                                                    2014

until suspected formula change with detrimental effects – and discontinued 

 

  ( Generally most of the above except where otherwise stated

     either More Aggravating or No Effect whatsoever )

 

Environmental Treatments

* Swimming in Chlorinated Pool – (not anymore)

   (Drove Malassezia into internal areas -took me a long time to realise

    although i could feel it crawling as soon as i hit the water

    and chlorine dried the skin rendering it vulnerable to easy Malassezia digging)

* Swimming in Salt-Chlorinated Pool – (not anymore)

   Same as above but more quiet time before its returning to the surface

   which i had also initially wrongly interpreted for a while as clearing.

* Washing All Bedding and All Clothing Daily (still Do!)

   Yet there have been times when i was dealing with fractured bones

   and was unable to follow strict routine yet there was no dramatic change. 

 

* Bombing the House with Permethrin and other Pesticides 

   No Effect whatsoever!

* Discarding Furniture, Bedding, Clothing etc.

   (2/3 of All Contamination Susceptible items replacing with new)

   Felt good buying new ones but No effect on Malassezia 

* Moving Out of Home and Renting – in Newly Built Apartment

   A very Expensive Eye Opener to the Reality and Nature

   of what i was truly dealing with. 

   Many helpful discoveries – Many puzzle pieces came together

   many false beliefs or interpretations cleared and observed 

   with a more open accepting mind,  leading to better

   healthier and more effective solutions been followed since .

 

ALL MENTIONED ABOVE PROVED USELESS AND COSTLY 

Yet Some Measures Necessary to a Moderate Degree

As Reasonable Daily Maintenance

Treatments: “Big Difference-No Difference” – D

   *DICTIONARY * 

   Malassezia Dictionary

     Malassezia Methods and Treatments

* Big Difference – No Difference *

                      Malassezia Chart MD

        * One Important point of Clarification  *

 

                                       When i Say:

“Something Does/Did – Does Not/Did Not  make Any Difference”

     i mean it in regards to Curing / Eliminating  Malassezia.

 

As i mention throughout several entries in the * Malassezia Bog*

        there are many things that DO and Have MADE

      a great deal of Difference –  in my Own Condition

          Compared to How it was in the Beginning

                    and How it is  Now regarding 

                Malassezia Presence and  Activity

         as well as its Symptoms and Effects on my Body.
 
             The Difference has been Tremendous                                                                                      
       … yet Malassezia is still Present and Active.
 

    Only a Good Immune System can keep it in Check and Unnoticed

                 – – –  though Still Present and Active – – –

          as a Naturally Occurring Body Flora – on ALL People.

 

There are though,  Methods and  Items that serve

as Deterrents – Healers – Soothers and as Killers

that when  applied under Certain Conditions

Can Treat Successfully Specific Needs and Purposes 

   * Topically – Externally – Temporarily *

 

          Most ‘Medicated’ Items appear near useless

while some Medications fill the role of the missing Eliminator 

requiring Long time Treatments and even them have only

a temporary effect due to high Malassezia Recurrence.

( I shall deal with Each Category above in Detail in upcoming Entries ) 

  * * *

  Also wherever i use the term ‘Spores’ it is because of lack of a better

      descriptive word for the  newly ‘hatched’ Malassezia cloned sister

                    and the ‘meatball’ spherical  appearance 

                   of surrounding hyphae developed shards 

                   viewed under Microscope and in Photos

                 – mine as well as those in Google Images.

      (More on the subject of multiplication in upcoming entries)
