    Re: Malassezia Globosa Fungus

    it feeds on the oil in hair follicles, could be why the KP sheds a lot of keratin out of the folicle
    im sure there are deficiency's and reasons we could get infected with this stuff

    im going to try a strong pyrithione zinc lotion on my skin, it takes constant use of it for a long time to kill it off, to see if it has any effect

    Medicated Body Cleanser with Zinc Pyrithione | Dermatologist Dr. Cynthia Bailey

    thats a body wash with the pyrithione zinc wash in it, i wish i could just buy the chemical grade pyrithione zinc and mix it with a more healthy body wash without SLS or nothing, ill keep searching
    but i think this makes great sense =)

    Re: cure for kp? Malassezia Globosa Fungus

    found a spray that should be good for entire body aplication
    Products - Solution Pyrithione Zinc Medicated Spray

    ill see how it works, i orderd 3 bottles ill use it like 2 or 3 times a day at least
    it will kill that fungas and stop its reproduction on the skin, im also going to buy some soap
    Products - Pyrithione Zinc Body and Facial Soap

    i hope this **** works haha, but i think im onto something, because people who use a buncha stuff that kills fungus see mild results, including people who use bleach on their skin

    Re: cure for kp? Malassezia Globosa Fungus

    oh yeah i was just thinking, SLS sodium laural sulfate, products are used a lot for skin problems
    they strip all the oil off the skin and scalp, causing your body to want to produce more oil
    SLS may be the cause of making a feeding ground for oil eating fungus like this to thrive

    i did a buncha research because KP and eczema and all those skin problems, including dandruff all seem to be incurable. and related to an extent
    i dont think its genetic, i think its caused by something. and some people may have factors that make them more susceptible to these things, like this malassezia globosa fungus

    think about it people, dandruff affects about 55% of the worlds population
    i read KP affects around the same ammount, depending on what research you read

    Re: cure for kp? Malassezia Globosa Fungus

    That was certainly an interesting read. I don't know if we can really make a link between KP and that fungus, but looks like you're already on your way to testing your theory out! Keep us posted!

    It reminds me of a thread on this forum about people putting shampoo containing pyrithione zinc (head and shoulders pyrithione zinc) on their arms and some saw good results. :

    Dandruff Shampoo

    I had tried it, but didn't see any changes. Perhaps something like you bought would produce better results.

    Re: cure for kp? Malassezia Globosa Fungus

    itd take a while, first ud have to kill it off which could take a bit of time... then ud have to keep em dead
    so you'd have to keep applying it. till your body naturally ex foliated your follicles

    so itd be a few month process i believe. i mean it takes how long for the skin to renew itself? itd have to renew all the way down to the deepest layers to take out those keratin plugs

    check this link out
    The REAL Reasons Why Your Dandruff Shampoo Isn?t Working - Wellsphere

    it says 24 or 48 weeks of continuous use of anti fungal pyrithione zinc shampoo had no more reappearance of dandruff
    u know what this means? itd take 24 to 48 weeks of CONSTANT use in order to kill this **** in our skin

    if this fungus is the cause, there is no slacking you would have to use it for 24 to 48 weeks straight, no compromise or the experiment wont work
    this is what im going to do

    YOU GET IT? if you use the pyrithione product for a few days it wont do nothing, we would need to use it for a long time to kill that stuff and have solid long lasting results

    i believe im onto something

    Interesting. I had only tried it for 3 months. Might be worth giving this another shot, but with a different product like the ones you listed above.

    You may certainly be onto something and it's something that's not too expensive to test and not to time consuming.

    Re: cure for kp? Malassezia Globosa Fungus

    yeah, remember though u gotta let the zinc stuff sit on your skin for at least 5 min before you rinse it off, otherwise its pointless
    thats for the shower, soaps and shampoos gotta sit for 5 min, the lotions and sprays stay on the skin so i wouldnt worry bout that.

    Re: cure for kp? Malassezia Globosa Fungus

    i used to go to the tanning bed to treat KP then had to treat the sun spots (a fungus!). They told me to use selsum blue to kill the bacteria. put it on before bed and wash it off in the morning. killed the sunspots right off and the KP was clearing but the selsum blue dryed out my skin really bad! But like everyine said....You may be on to something here! Thanks! I didnt think about this before your post!
    OH! used it for 3 weeks...i think..

    Re: cure for kp? Malassezia Globosa Fungus

    Nizoral shampoo is a strong anti fungal get the 2% kind, im gonna use it once a week as a body wash, then try to wash every day with the zinc 2% soap the rest of the tme

    i think 2% would be better, i mean its deep in the hair follicle that we gotta get it if the fungus is the cause

    remember, it has to sit on your skin for several minutes to do the job
    there are a bunch of diffrent products out there with these kinda antifungal stuff in it, make sure you buy a stronger % of the stuff ok?

    ketoconazole is the active ingredient in the nizeral stuff, i read up that it kills the same fungus a little better then the pyrithione zinc for the fungus in the scalp,
    remember people, you use it for 3 weeks and quit it wont do a thing but come right back, u gotta kill the fungus and keep it down for 24 to 48 weeks or itll just grow right back

    Re: cure for kp? Malassezia Globosa Fungus

    think about it, KP is in the hair follicle, the fungus eats hair follicle oils
    why would bleach work to clear up KP? i read a few forums of ppl putting bleach on their skin and it clears up a bit

    bleach kills everything, so of course its gonna help kill the fungus in the follicle
    the problem though, is that according to the dandruff study about how long it takes to keep the fungus from coming back, is it takes 24 to 48 weeks of constant treatment to keep it from coming back

    what kinda scientific study is gonna put antifungal stuff on people for that long?

    also, if you were killing the fungus in the follicle you wouldnt see if it worked or not right away, because the skin would take a long while to exfoliate the dead plugs out even if they werent being created anymore

    think about it, its deep in the deep layer of skin the follicle is clogged and irritated, so even if the cause has stopped you wouldnt be able to tell untill like months later when the skin was able to unglogg itself with exfoliation

    so your gonna be like "DAMN THIS ISNT WORKING" and quit,
    then because you quit the fungus will repopulate and the body will keep shedding inside the follicle as a reaction to the fungus
    thus you would never know if it did any good

    so this experiment would have to be done for a long time to even know if it worked, and you wouldnt see any results for a long while

    but i believe this could very well be the cause

    no wonder bleach works to help clear it up, and no wonder it comes right back when they stop
    no wonder coconut oil helps to clear it up a bit, (its a mild anti fungal)
    no wonder boosting the immune system helps a little bit (helps ur body fight the fungus)
    and NO WONDER people give up on stuff so fast

    because this fungus is a pain to kill, it takes a long term treatment

    no study of pyrithione zinc or the other antifungals on the skin is gonna show that it works, because their gonna try it for like 5 weeks or 4 weeks or something then be like "OH WE SEE NOTHING IT DOESNT DO ANY GOOD" of course it wont
    these shedding plugs are embedded in the follicle and take a long time to ex-foliate out!
    those red dots are follicle irritation from being plugged up with too much stuff

    so, this experiment would take time

    thanks for listening to my rant =)

    Re: cure for kp? Malassezia Globosa Fungus

    Apparently, killing fungus, the yeast stuff that causes dandruff
    is more complicated then i originally thought.

    im reading now that you have to put anti dandruff shampoo on your scalp for 20 min at a time to make it more affective.

    apple cider vinegar helps kill the fungus on the skin but you have to apply it multiple times a day, and let it stay on your skin for a long time to be really affective

    so people, look up dandruff cures, natural remedys and stuff

    lets figure out more methods and more cheap things to put on the skin to keep this fungus dead

    oh yeah, 1 more thing i read is with skin fungus it may take up to 2 years of constant treatment to kill the fungus off and keep it dead (says one site about dandruff, not sure if thats true or not)

    what a pain... but it really does seem to be the cause of KP because
    the yeast fungus causes excess shedding, and it feeds on hair follicle oil

    so please, lets do some research together and see what we can figure out

    thanks

About KeratosisPilaris.org

Keratosis Pilaris is a very common benign genetic skin condition. KeratosisPilaris.org is the definitive resource for KP on the internet.

KP appears as rough or bumpy skin on the back and/or outer sides of your upper arms. The severity of the symptoms varies from person to person. You can also manifest it on the face as a natural blush (known as KPRF or Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Faceii).

This community is composed primarily of KeratosisPilaris.org community members, but is also open for those interested in the topic.
