pus-filled blisters that may ooze pus
itching - burning skin - pain
a large bump or mass
Malassezia probably grows / thrives in warmer and humid climate because we are more likely to sweat when it’s hot outside, and sweat is made from lactic acids, salt, which in the presence of human skin lipids will cause malassezia to proliferate / multiply.
a note on pH.
Malassezia and Folliculitis like and thrive at a pH of 5.5 to 7.5, which is at the higher end of the acid mantle, or the normal pH of healthy human skin which is around 4.5.
Keep in mind that, “sensitization to malassezia is most likely a combination of a damaged - dysfunctional acid mantle skin barrier, your genetic background, and environmental factors,” so ALWAYS use proper skincare with pH between 3 and 5.
The reason MCT oil does not cause any problems for those with malassezia is because it’s made from caprylic (octanoic) and capric (decanoic) acid (C8 and C10 ), which are two fatty acids that are outside of that C11-24 range.
