                                                   * * *
                                How is Malassezia Controlled
                   And Maintained to Lowest Possible Levels 

                      (PART 2: HOW )


                 Scalp and Hair:

Healing Scalp 1 MB


Photo 1 Shows how Clear and Healthy the Scalp looks

(On the ‘Before’ stage when thin and falling, the scalp could be seen through the hair

 as in the photo above without separating the hair as done above deliberately)


Healing Scalp 2 MB

      Photo 2 Shows Richly Recovering Hair
* I Brushing Scalp with Nail Brush twice Daily
*  Wash with Zinc Pyrithione Shampoo Daily
    lather and let stand while soaking and washing body
*  Selenium  Sulphite or
*  Permethrin Cream Shampoo with Butoxide 
(Only Occasionally when needed if increased activity together with Zink P)



                                Healed Ears1 MB

My pretty little Ears are now Clean – Redness and Lesions Free
*  I extend the daily shampoo lather to cover the outer area of the Ears
   and briefly All over the Face before rinsing
*  I clean the inside area with ordinary cotton tips dipped in warm water
   both in the morning upon rising and at night before retiring
   more often if required – then dry with cotton tips.
*  I clean the entire area – inside and outer area and at the back
   with a cotton wad soaked in plain clean warm water.
            Infrequently and only if persistent:
*  When Itching or Crawling in the Deeper area,
    i fill the ear cavity with ‘Aqua Ear’ drops
    tilting the head to the side for a full three minutes 
   – and that’s the end of Malassezia!
 (During the first full minute there is no response,
  during the entire second minute there is intense squirming
  and then …Nothing!… Malassezia is Dead!…
  I wait for one more minute just to make sure )
                                   Eyes – Eyelashes
HEaling Eyelashes1 MB
      Photo 1- shows Poor eyelashes, in the ‘before’ stage,
                     bottom ones almost Non existent
   Photo 2- Now in healthy recovery growing strong and long
                Much like Ears, Eyes and Eyelashes
             require vigilance and daily maintenance
*  I Clean with a Cotton wad dipped in plain, clean, warm water
   and wipe several times a day, trying to also clean as gently as can be done,
   the liquid stage Malassezia on the surface of the eye.
   I discard the Cotton after one use  and replace with new
   if more needed for the outer eyelashes areas
*  I apply often softly warmed up Fresh Sea water
   and at night before bed time, i apply fresh Aloe Vera juice from my Veranda pots.
   Malassezia responds within a few seconds with a sudden burning itchy sensation
   as the gel starts to dry and possibly killing what of it is covered by the gel.  
  This while wet and until it dries out. When totally dry it does not prevent
  more Malassezia attacking the area anew, but it works protectively at night
  Both Aloe Vera, as well as Natural Sea Water contain Rich Nutrients
  that feed the Eyelashes and help restore their strength and health
  even if new batches of Malassezia may persistently go back.
          (Salt + water Not the same as Natural Sea Water )

Cleared Nostrils1 MB

        My cute little Nostrils, Now Clear and Healthy

      … but Malassezia has left them totally hairless :(
           Much like treating the Eyes and Eyelashes
*  I clean with a Cotton wad dipped in plain, clean, warm water
   and wipe dry with a cotton stick in circular motions, several times a day.
   I also clean Nostrils thoroughly during my bath and apply Sea water after
                                    Mouth – Lips
*  Both Morning and Night – more frequently if required
   i clean with a Cotton wad dipped in plain, clean, warm water
                    the same as i do with Eyes and Ears.
*  I do so, especially after each meal
*  During bath time i extend the shampoo lathering to cover briefly the entire face
   and closed eyelids, allowing to stand briefly while rubbing off gently with nail brush
   or fingertips for any Malassezia created greasy spots, just before rinsing off
*  Where / if a Pimply Bump, i apply topically a small dub of Oil Free Neutrogena
*  At night time I use a cotton wad dipped in Sea water to wipe the face
   much the way a make-up remover is used
   and  i dub/ re-apply Natural Sea Water as if a toner or face cream
 I Never use any Commercial Facial Products
   I have a Naturally Oily Complexion and never fight it
*  I apply and Brush with Zinc Pyrithione Shampoo as on Hair and Scalp
    using a dub on a good size Nail Brush.
*  I Never use deodorants, powders or anything else…
                                Back – Shoulder – Chest

Malassezia  Lesions on Upper Body1 MB

(Before) (1) Lesion along Spine (2) Chest Lesion (3)Burning rash under Breast


*  I apply and Brush with Zinc Pyrithione Shampoo as on Hair and Scalp
   using a dub on a good size Nail Brush while in the bath after a good soak
*  Before going to bed i dub Sea Water wherever i can reach
*  Should a Bump appear and /or break into a lesion
   i apply Sea water and cover with waterproof strip after a bath.
(Helps heal much faster and prevents attracting more Malassezia
  in an already inflamed area where blood is readily available)
       (Salt + water Not the same as Natural Sea Water )
                 Hands and Fingers
*  I daily Brush well both the inside and outside hand surfaces
   using a dub of Zinc Pyrithione Shampoo,
   on a good size Nail Brush when in the bath.
*  If any Scratches appear, hardly any nowadays and if so only tiny,
   i dip them in Sea water immediately after the bath and before going to bed.
   Usually healing is very quick and painless.
                            Nails – Fingers and Toes
Nails and Cuticles Restored1 MB
Photo 1 – Shows Totally Restored Healthy Cuticles and Growing, Healthier Nails
           (The Cuticles on left and middle Fingers covering well over the Nails! 🙂)
Photo 2- Totally Clear, Healthy Foot, Toes and Nails
               (Cuticles healthy but still in basic condition )
1-In the ‘Before’ stage, nails were broken/eaten up
    back to the edges of the nail beds
   Malassezia had invaded 80% of the Nail Beds and there were No cuticles
2- In the ‘Before’ stage the entire top of the Foot and Toes
    were covered with tiny Persistent Blistery Lesions

*  I never –in my entire whole life- have i ever cut off any Cuticles
   never compelled by the female perception of beautiful appearance
   as their purpose is to Protect from Fungal Invasions and Infections
   and they are much like the Front Door of a House
*  I scrape with a Nail file in the morning, after a Bath and before Bed
   more if needed, to release white, sandy, gritty granules
   that if left may eat into the Nail Bed and create a mess, harder to treat.
*  Whenever i detect GSL – Sticky under the edge of the Nail
   i dub-scrape into it some Oil free Neutrogena before bed                                                  and it clears within a couple of days.
        If redness and swelling has not subsided by bed time
                  and is accompanied by itching:
*  First i wrap the toe with a well impregnated cotton wad with Sea water
   wrap another dry cotton wad around the wet one
   and i seal with a plastic strip -and put a sock on- to hold in place- overnight.
   Usually totally effective no requiring any repeat or change of action
*  If still there, despite this treatment, i repeat exactly as above
   replacing Sea water with Methylated spirits to avoid chance of settling in
*  For  pin and needle pricking, i dub some methylated spirits
   but nothing much to be done as it has already penetrated the skin
   and usually it only requires drastic action if in a couple of days
   starts to feel initially as a callous/corn which then opens up
   and develops into a pussy spot … which will last for weeks   
   unless drastic action is taken early. I keep a watchful eye.
                           Pubic – Groin and Buttocks
*  I wash Frequently with warm water throughout the day and when i get up at night
    to prevent any GS Layer drying and settling in these areas
*  I do so especially each and every single time i ‘go to the bathroom’
   because Urine is acid and i have plenty of indication Malassezia is attracted to it.
*  I also wash thoroughly after each solid ‘business’ as Malassezia resides inside
    the Rectal area and is sure to accompany waste and gas on the way out.
*  I clean thoroughly with a wad of cotton dipped in clean plain warm water
   and discard after a single use – i repeat a couple of times if needed
   or use a clean face cloth – one use only then sent to the wash.
   I consider of paramount importance Absolute Cleanliness
   and a concentrated effort to Disturb the outer Private areas frequently
   to ascertain that Malassezia does not get a chance to stick on its surface
*  If appearance of Pimply, Pus Filled Bumps, and if not already too advanced,
   repeated applications of Sea water prevent the opening and developing
   of painful razor blade like lesions
     If already advanced and broken it helps heal much faster
*  Dubbing liberally Sea water overnight prevents Malassezia settling there
   -if already settled it prevents its normal development
   -if already present broken bumps, offers quick painless healing
*  If a Crawling sensation is experienced that’s the time i act quickly!

  (Salt + water Not the same as Natural Sea Water )


                       Genital – Anal Areas


*  I wash the entire outer area as soon as i feel any movement                                               using a wad of cotton dipped in moderately hot water                                                          or clean face cloth – either one, for one use only.

*  I douche the vagina thoroughly with warm water or as has proved more effective:             use a wad of cotton or clean sponge dipped in clean warm water                                        wiping the walls  and then dry with a clean cotton ball until dry.

*  I do so every morning upon waking and every evening before retiring                                as well as sponge the vaginal walls when having a bath and dry with cotton                       when i get out. (and i enjoy many hours of tranquil peace afterwards :))

*  Fortnightly Enemas help to effectively clear the Anal /Rectal area                                       at least for a while.


*  And of course Frequent Daily Changes of Clean Underwear

                                        I consider 
                        Immaculate Hygiene in that area
                      as of Utmost and Equal Importance
                       for Men as much as for Women
                  especially when One Partner is affected
                          Malassezia Loves them Both 
                      and Transfers from one to the other 
               even if Only One experiences negative effects.
* The recent addition of three generous 250g Yogurt tabs in my daily diet
  seems to have greatly enhanced and restored the Friendly Flora 
                            Legs and Follicles
*  I vigorously and meticulously Brush Inch by Inch during a bath
   using a dub of Zinc Pyrithione Shampoo on a good size Nail Brush
   allowing first a Long soak to soften and expose any bumpy areas
   and render them more vulnerable to brushing off.
*  I apply Sea water immediately after the bath
   while the skin is warm and the pores are open
   (I do all of the above routinely for the Toes as well)
                                          As above:
*  I Vigorously brush my entire body from top to toe and inch by inch
using a dub of Zinc Pyrithione Shampoo on a good size Nail Brush,
when i am in the bath, allowing first a long soak,
to soften and expose any bumpy areas and soften any patches of GSL
for a more effective brushing off.
*  Any Dry areas i Hydrate with a dub of Natural Sea water    
      (Salt + water is Not the same as Natural Sea Water )
*  In the bath water i use a generous squirt of a very mild Baby Bubble Bath wash
 (fewer chemicals compared to any fragrance and oil enriched normal ones.)
         OCT 12:  I have recently replaced Baby wash with more effective
                        5-6 Squirts of Zinc Pyrithione Shampoo in the water.
    (Later on i suspected Shampoo Formula change and discontinued use) 
*  Areas of Skin Discolouration i do not consider worth doing much about.
   I used to rub banana skins and seemed to work but its messy and sticky
   and now that i know a lot more than back then i can see this might be inviting
   to Malassezia, so i do not bother, having already enough daily maintenance..
   In time it all gets milder and faints and that’s fine with me
                                    What has Changed?
*  I have Added a generous amount of Acidophilus Yoghurt in my Diet
*  I Apply Fresh Sea Water from the Beach, on Troubled or Vulnerable areas
*  I have Stopped using any harsh Chemicals allowing my Body to Recover
*  I have – out of adverse necessity– stopped swimming
     thus No more Exposure to Daily Chlorine
     allowing more Friendly Flora to Develop and Repopulate my Skin
                                    I strongly Believe that:
*  The End of Chlorine Exposure ,
*  Near complete Reduction of Chemicals
*  Introduction of Acidophilus Bacteria (as in generous daily amounts of Yoghurt)
*  Daily Application of Mineral RichNatural Sea Water, (Not Salt + water)
   Frequent, diligent Cleaning throughout the Day, of Sensitive, Vulnerable areas
    to make sure No GSL settles and dries on the skin, have possibly been acting 
    Synergistically, towards a Gradual Restoration of Friendly Skin Flora
    that Chlorine, Long term Antibiotics and Long term Regular Exposure to X-Rays,
    had destroyed.
                                    The Difference:
Before – Daily Rigorous Maintenance:
*  Partially and  Only Temporary effective
*  Often Causing Pain and Aggravation
*  Considerable Expense
*  Toxic to the Body 
*  Harsh and Detrimental to the Skin
*  Negatively affecting Friendly body Flora
Now – Daily Rigorous Maintenance:
*  Effective Improvement without Pain or Discomfort 
*  Greater more Lasting Relief
*  Minimal Expense
*  No Toxicity to the Body(unless one considers shampoo to be as such.)
*  Gentle to the Body, Skin and Friendly Flora
*  Promoting General Friendly Skin Flora
   (Provided be Seawater Minerals, Aloe Vera,Yoghurt and Acidophilus Bacteria)
*  Decisively Interfering and Controlling the Pest
                Dismally Let Down by All my Medicos
       and Left without any Access to Internal Medication
                       This One is by Far
                       *   Most Effective
                       *   Painless
                       *   Side Effect Free
                       *   Minimal Financial Cost
                       *   Gentle to the Body, method
       Compared to Anything Else i have tried before.
      The Battle is not Over yet – it is a Daily One
     but Life is now a Lot Better and more Liveable
     as long as i can maintain the current condition

Acidophilus Capsules internally and on affected areas have come to play a greater
more extensive preventative and  healing role as detailed in other relevant  entries.
