Malassezia-Antibiotics & Other Chemical Treatments

Malassezia Antibiotics and Chemicals

K1- “pityrosporum folliculitis treatment on forehead with Vaseline”
K2- “enzymes that eat Malassezia”
Q1- “can selsun gold shampoo kill fungal spores in skin and hair”
Q2- “does isoporpyl alcohol kill malasezzia”

Some of these Keywords i have already addressed in earlier Entries here
and All of them Several times and in Length in Both ‘Parent Blogs’
so i shall address them here only briefly.

K1- “pityrosporum folliculitis treatment on forehead with Vaseline”
Vaseline is not a suitable treatment for this particular purpose.

Re-Pertoleum Jelly- MQ

              Vaseline Being Petroleum jelly 
and Malassezia thriving in Grease and Jellies
it would classify as in the inappropriate use category.

K2- “enzymes that eat Malassezia”
I don’t know if there are any kind of Enzymes obtainable
other than the Digestive ones, which had No effect whatsoever
on Malassezia either Consuming Internally or Applying on Skin.

I initially got the idea they might work and to trial them
because pets lick themselves when they are wounded
and because … i too had tried the direct trick once! …
applying saliva on a small lesion and found some quick relief
-but not a clear indication saliva enzymes killed.
Back then i was desperate and prepared to try Anything
even if it could killed me… I am much wiser now…

Q1- “can selsun gold shampoo kill fungal spores in skin and hair”
NO- It can Not. I still use it once in a blue moon.
Among the Numerous ones i have trialled i have only found One
that appears to do so or does better than all others.
I have written in detail about Both of them in earlier Entries

Many Topics have been discussed or expanded
in the “Keyword – Questions” Categories, in this site 
and in  Malassezia Daily

Q2- “does isoporpyl alcohol kill malasezzia”
Not unless Malassezia is fully immersed in it.
I have written in detail about it in Both Malassezia Parent Blogs.

K3- “care after applied dettol to scrotum”
Ouch!…this must have hurt!…
Dettol is no good and most especially for this area.
More Details in Both Parent Blogs

K4- “monistat for parasites mites” 
K6- “malassezia by antibiotics”
Keyword K4 refers to parasite mites
But i shall address it here
a) because the Reader may be referring to Malassezia as parasites
in which case i must clarify that it is Not a Parasite as such
but Part of the Commensal Body Flora, and  
b) because Monistat is Prescribed for Yeast Infections
which makes it Relevant anyway.

Quick research into Monistat:

Monistat (Miconazole Nitrate) is an Azole antifungal

Monstat 1-MQ

I wonder why one should consult their Doctor /Pharmacist
before using it, if they have frequent vaginal infections
since it is Prescribed as a Treatment for Yeast Infections?…

Could it be because of this Statement below, regarding
increased risk by antibiotics, considering Monistat IS an Antibiotic?

Monstat 2-MQ

And this does not apply only to Vaginal Yeast Infections

Antibiotics and PityroReinfestation -MQ

I have already written in Details in Earlier Entries in Both Parent Blogs
about my Personal Experiences and Results regarding
the Azole Antifungals in their different types and uses 

………………………

Azole – Definition of Azole by Medical Dictionary:
A family of synthetic broad-spectrum antifungal antibiotics
–including ketoconazole, fluconazole, itraconazole.

(Many More – Not included above)

Adverse effects N&V, anorexia, rash, pruritus,
nonspecific liver enzymes, anemia, leukopenia,
thrombocytopenia, headache, etc
Drug interactions Plasma levels of azoles are by antacids,
H2-receptor antagonists, sucralfate, isoniazid, phenytoin, rifampin.
McGraw-Hill Concise Dictionary of Modern Medicine 
© 2002 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.

(The Two in Bold are TB medications)

………………………

K5-” toxic side effects of malassezia treatment”
I have written in Detail about All treatments i have used
Results and side effects throughout, several times and in All Blogs.
It would be impossible to put all this in one Entry here.

K6- “malassezia by antibiotics”
My Entire Story right from the Start Blog 1 some 6 years back
has been the Basis of the Effect of Long Term use of Antibiotics
Not Only in regards to Malassezia turning from
Harmless Commensal Flora to a Torturing Pathogen
but also the General Devastating Effects upon my Entire Body
and the Limited capabilities and Disjointed ways
it is now left to Operate with as a Result.
I am Paying a Price i had Never envisaged or Imagined possible
and the main Reason i have practically turned
into a Natural Health Evangelist type of Preacher
in the hope that my shared experiences and hard learning
might help informing and possibly saving others.

I shall repeat and conclude here saying:
All the Chemicals – Antifungals – Antibiotics
we Use for whatever Reasons or Causes, Internally or Externally,
have a Cumulative Effect on Our Body, Its Major and Minor
Organs and General Immunity Systems, i.e Different types
of Protective Systems – Internal and External.
NONE can have ANY Permanent Effect on Malassezia
due to its High Chances of Recurrence
while Adding to the Immune Imbalance.
Restoration of Immunity is the ONLY way to Permanent Cure
i.e Converting Malassezia back to a Commensal State
by suppressing its Proliferation and ability to grow to Hyphal Forms.
I have Proved it Can be done to a great Degree,
-Earlier Sample Photos compared to Recent ones, adequately indicate so-
but it is too late for me to achieve a complete reversal.
I strongly believe, Many people in better condition
and without major underlying illness can achieve that
if only willing and having the strength to apply and adhere
to Strict Discipline – Compared to a Continual battle
with the Potential to get worse under adverse circumstances.

Digging Holes in the Skin!

Digging Holes in the Skin!

Malassezia Digging Holes-MQ

One Characteristic i have mentioned in Earlier Entries
is how Malassezia seems to lodge in an area persistently until it devastates it
and then it abandons it for quite some time –until … its next chosen time.
I have Speculated it might be that, that particular area does not provide
anymore the elements it needs for continuing its multiplication 
but one rather hard to confirm.

One Consequence i have mentioned in Earlier Entries, is of applying any
Deterrents -Chemical or Natural- that do not Kill it on Impact
thus allowing it to Relocate to a different area.
Whether its Relocation in the new area attracts New batches,
or some part of that particular batch Unaffected by treatment
manages to Reproduce and start a new cycle there, is Unclear to me. 
The Relocation though IS clear and fairly quick, usually to the closest
areas to where treatment was applied, if caught in the initial Mobile stages.
If already settled and solidified, depending on treatment, it dies off gradually
or creates a big -and often painful-mess. 
One good reason for acting Sooner rather than later. 

One Maintenance Rule i apply, also mentioned in Earlier Entries, is that
when i manage to clear an area -either by voluntary departure or consequence
of …war!- once i am sure, i reduce or cease application of deterrents/healers etc.
and allow the Skin to build its own Resistance – until the next round 😦
The same i apply to Less Vulnerable areas where i can feel Temporary Traffic
but usually not followed by trouble, i just wash the area with an old, rough 
face cloth and leave as is, without further protection.

Coming now to the Surprise of the Nasty built of an Overlooked situation:

Namely … the Holy Foot!… TOC

Whether it was the Characteristic or the Consequence or part of the Rule
i am not sure.  The story goes like this: For a few days i was fighting something
and had slightly raised temperature – this drew the yeast in the Genital area,
which prompted me to increase protection there.
As a Consequence it moved away. Then my Temperature went further up
and whatever it was, my Body cleared it and all was restored, including reduction
in protective measures and when i was sure it was all quiet i completely stopped.
Simultaneously though, i noticed after the recovery stage that there was 
systematic traffic under my Foot. Having never had any Lesion problems there, 
i thought it best to wash and leave it alone so that it won’t return back up 
to the privates or Relocate to more vulnerable or sensitive areas.  
As it is hard these days to reach easily my Feet and see the underneath  
i attended  to the area without Looking or applying Protection Day or Night
                                                        BIG MISTAKE! 
By the time i started to actually Feel Pain and Burning and all the Familiar signs
of TROUBLE , it was Too Late!… It had engraved an …Embroidery of Evil work!

Malassezia on Foot 1-MQ

Puffy Swelling – Blood Holes – Cheesy Centers

Malassezia on Foot 2-MQ

Photo1: Puffiness, Swelling around Blood Spot of developing Lesion
Photo 2: Puffiness, Swelling in Raised area, circled, creating two parallel 
                    vertical creases in between Big and Little Toe
Photo 3: Cheesy Centers –shown by arrows

The Swelling indicates accumulation of Liquid/Biofilm under the Skin Surface
meaning until all erupts upwards nothing can affect it except Peroxide
but i could not withstand the hours of Immense Pain let alone the Mess 
it would leave behind, so i was applying different options.
During the Day i  still washed when i felt activity or itchiness, then dried
and instead of using talc which can be absorbed through the open wounds,
i used a large Cotton Wad to Pad the Foot, Absorb Moisture 
which attracts it and Dry Malassezia as it erupted upwards.
This also Prevents Temporarily New Batches settling in the area.

If i still detected activity i alternated Seawater or Acidophilus Mix.
Too much Acidophilus gives me headaches due to the encapsulating 
agents and sugars, so i usually try to keep low usage during the Day
and increase when necessary, or at Night time.

At Night i empty an entire Acidophilus Capsule in a New Cotton Wad
and use Dropper to soak it with Wet Mix, to Work and Protect.
Once Malassezia has Passed the Spore stage
Acidophilus has the upper hand!

All Activity and Lesion Expansion in the area has now Ceased
and is in the Healing Stage, so i am keeping a vigilant eye
and making sure it is Dry at all times.

Biofilm around Eyes

My Photos below are the only ones in these Entries
taken by Digital Microscope a while back, to capture
the Biofilm in the early stage when invisible
–the transparent Shiny edge of eye, in Left photo.
Later stage Orange Colour, above the edge, was easily visible.

It happens suddenly or overtime.
Of note below is the accompanying Biofilm Presence.

Exploring Eyebrow Trouble MF -MQ

I am Not diagnosing Malassezia
-easy yo see, yet hard to be certain-
as there might be other Skin Conditions
causing the above appearances.
I am indicating similarities with Malassezia
and associated Symptoms such as:

  •  Poor or Thinning Eyebrows
  •  Poor Top Eyelashes
  •  Scanty or Non existent Lower eyelashes
  •  Gritty Encrusted layer on Top Eyelash beds
  •  Surrounding Biofilm
  •  Biofilm presence (or dirty /darker shadow)
     which point to likely Malassezia Presence

The Symptoms presented in the Nail and Eye Photos
of (possible) Malassezia, may also be found
with careful observation in One’s Own Photos
simply taken by ordinary or iPhone camera

In Google Image below – i have intentionally modified the Iris
to cover fancy lenses attracting attention, in order to display
without interference, how Normal, Strong Eyelashes should look.
Light Mascara appears to have been applied to enhance the look
but still looking Strong and Healthy – even if without
– unless they are … implants? – but do not appear as being so.

Healthy Eyelashes-MQ

Another possibility: If photo taken by special magnifying lenses
the look could be deceptive, as i noticed with mine below (blue)
-the only one taken by Digital Microscope- where the lower
lashes look Impressively Rich and Dark! 🙂
Any how,  the photo above was chosen only to illustrate
what Healthy, Strong Eyelashes should look … without tricks!

Nails –What the Photos Reveal  (PT1)

Ever since the Startling Surprise
of Viewing my Perfectly Healthy looking Nails
under the Digital Microscope 
i have become obsessed with detecting 
similar -deceptive- appearances in other people’s 
Perfect looking –or not so– Nails and … Eyelashes!

So i compiled a Collection of Famous People’s Photos
selected Randomly from Popular Web Sites, Ads
and Google Images, initially from mere personal curiosity
and comparison and then progressively considering
whether it might be of interest sharing the observations.

Although All of them were displayed openly to the Public
and have been viewed by thousands of people
every possible care has been taken
to Remove any associations with Web Sites
and Reduce to absolute minimum, identification 
of Nail or Eye owner – not an easy task overall…

I am starting with Nails first because if i publish the Eyes
i may have a Ninja visiting through our veranda at night
1 tongue on cheekto serve me with a silent, Revenge bullet in the scull
before i have a chance posting about the Nails… 😛             

                      Observations on One of my Own 
                        Additional Photos and Details in 
                    “PHOTOS-Photo Analysis-Comments 

Finger Nails View 2-MQ

 My Observations on Various Collected Photos

Blood Spots – Inflammation – Biofilm

The edges of the Nails look painted white
and presumably Cuticles have been trimmed back
making hard to judge their state of health and quality
but i can see clear signs of trouble – marked in Photo 2:

(Click on Photos to enlarge )

Exploring Nail Trouble1-MQ

  • Red arrows ~> indicate Blood Spots Under the Nail
    i.e Malassezia dig-in entrance points.
  • Curved lines ) indicate injured – Nail Root inflammation area
    and drying Biofilm on Skin surface – also present on Second Toe [ ]
    as well as widespread Biofilm presence on Foot surface
    -marked by arrows below- looking like dirty patches of skin.

Exploring Nail Trouble1-1 MQ

Blood Spots – Inflammation – Corrosion

Exploring Nail Trouble2-MQ

I will assume the Ragged Nail edge is due to poor Filing
and not Poor Nail health, though i am much inclined
to believe it is the second…

Inflammation – Corrosion – Biofilm

Exploring Nail Trouble3-MQ

These being a gentleman’s Nails, i presume there was no
intentional Cuticle pullback, therefore their complete absence
is due to Fungal Corrosion, observed on All sides of Nail
with prominent inflammation areas and widespread Biofilm
on fingers and hand  (intentionally cropped off original photo)

Fungal Cuticle Corrosion – Inflammation – Biofilm

Exploring Nail Trouble 4-1-MQ

Exploring Nail Trouble 4-2-MQ

All Three Photos display prominent Fungal Corrosion
along –eaten up– Cuticles, dark area 2 &3 (orange – ( -circled)
of indicative Nail root Inflammation and Biofilm on surface
and Third photo shows additional widespread Biofilm
on base of finger ( ( circled in red – (– )

Cuticle Corrosion as in the above photos.

Exploring Nail Trouble5-MQ

Ladies Nail problems are more difficult to detect
because they are usually covered by nail polish
which conceals but can also potentially initiate
or definitely aggravate an existing condition.

Trimming or Pulling back the Cuticles opens area
to vulnerability and is issuing a deadly Invitation
to Fungal problems that once they start and set in
require a lot of effort to contain or reverse
and always subject to chronic recurrent attacks.
