                            ~Crawl, Burn, Itch and Scratch All Day…~



Any number, combination and severity of symptoms                                                         may be experienced at different times.

Depending on individuals sensitivity, body’s response
and stage of Malassezia’s development.
* General  Itchy, Prickly, Burning sensation all over the body
* A sudden strong, Acid like, Burning sensation on the skin
* Usually followed by maddening Itching
* Developing within hours into itchy Bumps
* Eventually breaking into Burning caustic Lesions
  (more details below in the comments section)
* Sharp but quick Pin Pricks in different parts of the body including face and toes.
  On Legs or Torso often they result on a Blood Red pin size Circle. (Photo 1)
* Spontaneous appearing usually semicircular Itchy / Burning Scratch Lines (Photo 4)
  on the skin often two or three together, usually on the arms, hands or buttocks.
* A thin, invisible to the eye, but highly Itchy, Burning, Grayish -or Orange Rust like-
  Sticky Substance  on many areas of the skin, becoming visible when rubbed off
  by applying warm water or methylated spirits and gentle repeated rolling/rubbing     
  pressure with the fingers. (Photo 5 – 6)


* Lice or Spider like movement* in the Hair and Scalp resulting in matting,
  hard to untangle   and Burning, Itchy sensation on the Scalp,
  which if given a chance, eventually resulting in painful Bumps
  followed by Itchy Lesions.
(Possibly stage 1 of Malassezia laying a Grayish Sticky Layer GSL,
   as mentioned above for the Gritty Granules that will develop
    onto Scalp Bumps and Lesions.
            ( 2014: GSL is the Malassezia -Biofilm- Carrier ) 
* Small white Gritty Granules, sand like, deposited on Hair, Scalp, (as above)
  as well as Eye Lids/ Lashes, on back, Finger Nails and Toes

  also eventually resulting in Painful Bumps followed by Itchy Lesions. (Photo 2 -3)

* Sudden Intense Shivering, topical or all over the body during mobilization
  in or out of the hair Follicles. May be experienced only topically on the legs or arms
  or all over the body. Usually followed by sensation of feeling sick internally
  i.e. stomach or as if blood has been injected with poison (as it most likely is)
* Dry, Stretched, Prickly, Scaly, Lifeless like feel of alternating areas of skin
  as if affected by corrosive liquid – the effect of the Grayish/Orange Sticky Layer.
  Very Painful and Uncomfortable as the skin ‘ pulls ‘ with every movement.
* Crawling sensation on different parts of the body at different times
  as if one or several creatures are crawling on some areas
  such as Head, Face, Ears, Torso back and front, Buttocks, Legs and Toes
  as well as outer Pubic / Genital / Anal areas.
* Crawling /Slithering sensation In and Out of both Private areas…
   in both men and women.
( Jan 12 )
* Recent discovery also indicates Restless Leg Syndrome
          (more below and in separate dedicated entry)

Bump localised activity consists of combined small pin prick sensations
  and rolling sand like, spreading outwards to the surface,
  in alternating periods of activity approximately every 20 minutes or so
  and periods of rest.
  The skin surface is gradually damaged as the lesion is developing and the yeast    
  digging in  and spreading, the whole process usually lasting for approximately
  three  to four weeks, then stops and the skin starts to heal
  but with scars left behind, size depending on depth and extend of lesion.
  During the time of inflammation and bleeding it is not unusual
  for more bumps to be created adjacent to the area 
  as more shards are attracted  to ready availability of blood
  and prepared skin area. (Photo 2)
Scratch Lines seem to be the reverse of the Bumps,
  in that they appear suddenly accompanied by intense itch and burning
  – and it is not clear to me so far whether they spring upwards
  from under the skin or dig in from the surface inwards
  by a sudden release of corrosive liquid that ‘eats’ the flesh
  while the bumps burn and itch first and gradually rise from under the skin.
Lice or Spider like movement in the Hair
Several times daily and during the night there is a Spider or Cockroach like
crawling sensation on the Scalp / mainly the  Hair /or hair follicles 
If i raffle my hair immediately for a while it appears as if the creature 
leaves the place  and runs to either my ears, face 
or through the neck down to my back 
During Bath time after a while having lathered the hair with shampoo 
it also feels as if the shampoo ‘froth’ … starts to move away 
from the scalp/hair while there is no water  running 
so i guess it is ” It ” relocating away from the shampooed area.

Small white Gritty granules

  I have collected some and they have developed within three weeks approximately
  and some when looked under the microscope looked like they might be
  or contain what appears to be fungus. (See Brief History and Photos) 
Grayish Sticky Layer GSL
  Usually on my shoulders, buttocks, thighs, shoulders, chest and belly.
  I have to rub it off the skin almost every morning each time from one or two areas.

  (Having a hot bath with soda in seems to help)

                                             OCT 12 : 

       More effective applying Zinc Pyrithione Shamppo “Head & Shoulders”                                   just prior to bath time, then scrub with a Nail Brush                                                                                   (see ‘Before-Now-How’)

                                               Oct 13: 

So i had thought at the time but later on i discovered Soda is No Good at all                                    For  latest Updated Info please visit *Malassezia Daily* 

Crawling / Slithering sensation In and Out of the Private areas
  I believe or rather i know for sure, they live there.
  I have used Combatrin (Bemedazole) for intestinal worms
  and Clotrimazol for Candida  yeast in the vagina and have observed
  -whether they die or just leave- that all gets quiet but only for a couple of days or so.
(21 Jan 12)
*Recently i have indications that it also causes Restless Leg Syndrome
 ( though not all cases as there are other causes for RLS, Malassezia one of them )
  because Malassezia concentrates both in the outer as well as inner Anal ring area
  constantly stimulating the highly sensitive nerve endings
  and this is felt more prominently at night when the person / body is resting
  and all muscles less tense.
The stronger the jerking the more Malassezia concentration in the area.
One or two 2 Ltr warm clean water Enemas, partially clean the area temporarily
and relieve the jerking for a short period of time until more accumulation occurs.
I suspect and have indications -too long to elaborate here- that Restless Leg Syndrome

on the left leg in women is due to concentration in the Vaginal and / or Uterine area

(OCT 12 : where it also lives and is created – see more details in later Entries).

Inserting Acidophilus capsules helps reduce concentration and relieves
leg muscle jerking / spasms as well as Increasing Friendly Bacteria presence.
It deters but does not kill Malassezia as it may do with the Candida types.
