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: Treatment- Relocation – Attack -DM


Re-Blogged due to additional Info:


10 Nov 13

    Treating Malassezia MD

After a three week experimentation following recovery

  after the Attack

                        Using the H&S Shampoo only

 it appears that where Malassezia would have otherwise

 existed uneventfully –without any detrimental effects– on my body

 the Shampoo caused it to Relocate – as suspected originally 

and verified by the experiment-  while it Flourished with the aid

of the Other (different brand Probiotic double strength)

                        (As Detailed in Entry Below)



Experiment Details See: 

Malassezia – Product Clarification and Warning




Malassezia Maintenance

Malassezia: Treatment – Relocation and  Attack


   Except for times experiencing a major health set back

   such as Fractured Ribs or serious Lung Bleeding

   and cannot keep up with my daily Preventative routine

              i usually deal with only short, minor Malassezia incidents.


              So I was  shocked and surprised to disbelief

           to discover a sudden double attack to a magnitude

              similar to those experiencing four years back

                      – on two areas simultaneously:


“Eyelash Beds” and “Under Breast area”


    I woke up Burning in Hellish Fire and Itch

  as if during the night i had fallen through a dark shaft

              into the nightmare i had lived some Four years back.


This is what was done to the skin under my Breast while asleep 

Malassezia Breast Burn 1

   Waking up Burning and Itching like the Fire of Hell!


                I have no Photo of the Eyelashes at the Initial state

                   as i was too distressed to think about doing so

                   but i can say without the slightest exaggeration

                  my eyes looked like I had been crying for hours

              and there was  a thick mucousy layer blurring my vision

                      like a sheet of plastic or as if putting

                 someone else’ s prescription glasses on

                      making it impossible to see clearly.

                       Additionally, my entire right eyelid

     kept flattering every few minutes like a severe nervous tick.


   No doubt I got working immediately with great success

          in relieving and improving the condition on both areas

                       but this is Not the Point of this story!


The Point is a Question:

    What Caused this Sudden

                  -apparently unwarranted unprecedented- attack

                        all of a sudden and of such magnitude

                            i had not experienced for ages?”

            My diet and meals have been steady for quite some time

                         due to high nutritional health requirements 

     as well as part of research/observation conducting an experiment.

      Only light changes are always Fresh Natural Fruits or Vegetables

                             on a new fortnight’s shopping day.


Here is an example of Breakfast and Dinner

      Healthy Meals 1 MD


  No contact or handling any clothing or other items in storage

  or areas of any possibility of contamination or re-infection.


 No Lung bleeding nor any other noticeable health misalignment

           other than the known usual condition.


    So, what was New?


Usually when i plan a calculated introduction of something new

i deal with one item at a time giving it 3-4 days or a week

    so that i can observe the effects, positive or negative

      – if there are any – without any doubt or confusion.


                           Somehow this time i failed to do so

                        as i did not consider the New as “New”

                but as Old and Tested already – of Both new Items!…


After i had Treated and Cleared my Scalp Beautifully with Acidophilus

i had started to noticing a gradual Re-location of yeast to the internal

and external genital areas – so i decided to have a break in the daily

Scalp treatment but after stopping Acidophilus the result was a slow return

and re-accumulation back on the scalp, so i decided to temporarily

add another variation of Zinc Pyrithione ‘Head and Shoulders’ Shampoo

 to stave it off  until i could recommence the Acidophilus treatment anew.


This is the addition to the Regular one.

Malassezia and Shampoo

‘Smooth and Pink’ is the Regular and the ‘Men’ s is the Addition


The second addition was a different brand of Acidophilus capsules

with a higher Strength and variation of Lacto-Bifidus Bacteria


    I started both on the same day and continued for three days

                   until i woke up to the above Horror!


I revisited the  Chemist’s website where i purchase the Acidophilus capsules

to check once more whether i had missed any unsuitable listed ingredients  

and was lucky to stumble upon this very helpful piece of information

posted as a disclaimer for a different Acidophilus Brand and list of ingredients.


Saccharomyces Bouldari P.

                              (Click on Image to Enlarge)

    So now I am not sure which One -if any- or Both Products introduced

                             may have caused this Ugly Result.


Trying to guess and piece it together there are a number of possibilities

             but i will only mention the ones i consider more likely 

                                until i am better able to verify.


I have mentioned in previous entries that if Malassezia is treated

with something that affects it but does not kill it on impact

                         it Relocates to a different area


                                                       So …


                                                Possibility 1:

       Malassezia -whatever was able and in a mobile stage- responded

                   to the New shampoo with massive Relocation 

                       down to the Eyes and Eyelashes areas.

    The fact that Both eyes were affected Simultaneously and so Strongly

           strengthens the conviction of my interpretation being Correct.


                                              Possibility 2:

       The New Acidophilus Capsules contain some Ingredient/s not listed

               -such as Sugar meant to feed the Acidophilus bacteria-

                  which also fed the Yeast crazy and Stronger

                         and i have to Thank my Lucky-Lucky  Luck

           it lodged under my breast that i can reach and treat easily

                        instead of my Privates internal or external.


The capsules in the two brands I have been using regularly

contain Inulin, a plant sugar that feeds Both good

as well as some bad bacteria and No doubt Yeasts as well….

but without any noticeable adverse consequences 

deterring and improving the condition

rather than reinforcing Malassezia presence

as the new Brand seems to have done

– If it was the capsules and not the shampoo. 


                   Incidentally, while on the new ones

i had a 3 day blinding nauseating migraine of much greater intensity

than the brief ones i usually get with my regular brands (as shown below).


    Malassezia Probiotics


This migraine presence also indicates to me

the above interpretation is correct

but this one i will simply not re-test as it proved too bad

and i am not prepared to take the risk.

I intend though to retest the Shampoo on its own

once i have completely healed the affected areas. 


So to put the picture in perspective, what i believe took place, was:

The Shampoo caused massive Yeast Relocation

and the New Probiotic Capsule Contents

Fed it Strong and it Span into a Frenzy! 

It will take a while now to perfectly clear both areas.

                                The Eyelash beds

         because the Yeast is embedded deep inside the follicles.

I can tell this because when i stretch the eyelids

i can see the yellow/white line  from where  its evil spawn 

 will be springing outwards for a few weeks.

    I may have to resort to more drastic measures like in the past

                              using Methylated Spirits. 


Here is how they look now

Malassezia on Eylashes 1 MD

Malassezia on Eylashes 2 MD


                               And the Breast area

because the skin is practically burned and while still inflamed

  it will be highly inviting to more trying to settle in.

 I try to minimise with treatment of alternating Seawater,

YAM mixture and Acidophilus Capsule diluted in a little water.


   The Eyelashes i have been treating with Fresh Aloe Vera plant Gel

the true Plant from my veranda Pots – Not any Commercial gels in tube.


So now Malassezia has been largely avoiding the treated Breast area

      and has re-located a bit further up in the right underarm area.

        No lesions or visible redness there just itching at intervals

              so i am treating it with Seawater as well , lol!

                and so we go round and round the mill…


            Relocation is a word that keeps coming up a lot

and is mainly connected with any treatment affecting the Yeast 

                   – whether Natural or Chemical –

but also when it eventually renders an area inhospitable to its needs

                due to the damage it has caused it…

Malassezia Lethal


*minimum lethal dose Sonata *


                                Well…i don’t know how to  take this…

                                I had never considered or known having a lethal side to me

                                but obviously some Reader must  believe i do!…


     Joke aside, if i am guessing correctly, i believe this search

                                was about the Entry *Lethal Strategies – of the Past*

                                in my *Malassezia Blog* in which i mention a safer way

                                to apply a method for controlling Malassezia on the Scalp
