Hi guys, welcome back to my channel! I know it’s been a while but I’m excited
to be back. So, this video is about yeast and Pityrosporum
folliculitis. This is actually a part two to this video
right here. If you’ve watched it already, thank you. If you haven’t watched it please be sure
to check out part one before proceeding to part two. Let’s get right into this topic: Yeasts
and Pityrosporum folliculitis. Common inhabitants or occupants of the skin
include viruses, bacteria and even fungi! That’s right! These things can exist on normal, healthy
skin. Can you guess from the title of this video,
which of these three things we’ll be focusing on? That’s right! Fungi! Fungi are divided into three types: Molds. Like the mold you find on decaying fruit,
bread, or cheese. Mushrooms. The same mushrooms you see growing from soil. And yeasts. Like Baker’s yeast, a key ingredient used
in bread-making. If we look at yeasts specifically, a variety
of yeast have been found living on normal, healthy skin for a very long time! In one particular study, Malassezia yeasts
made up approximately 50-80% of the total yeast population found on skin (depending
on the location). However, sometimes, yeasts like Candida can
overgrow under certain conditions causing a fungal infection of the skin like Athlete’s
Foot, toe nail fungus, vaginal yeast infections and others! In this video, you learned how an overgrowth
of Malassezia yeasts can cause Pityrosporum or Malassezia folliculitis. In fact, an overgrowth of Malassezia yeasts
are either directly or partially involved in many other conditions, too, such as dandruff,
pityriasis versicolor, seborrheic dermatitis, atopic eczema, psoriasis, and others! For now, we’ll focus on Pityrosproum or
Malasseiza Folliculitis, where an overgrowth of yeast persists beneath the hair follicles
causing an acne-like eruption on the skin. Quite like what you see here. But wait! Aren’t Malassezia yeasts found on normal
skin? Yes, but remember certain factors cause them
to overgrow. Factors like obesity, pregnancy, diabetes,
stress, taking broad-spectrum antibiotics or steroid medications, using oral contraceptives,
having a systemic illness or weakened immune system, excessive heat or sweating, oily,
greasy, or sebum-rich skin, and wearing tight clothes, which tends to trap heat, sweat and
moisture. So, how do you prevent or reduce the chances
of Pityrosporum folliculitis and ultimately keep the yeast population down? Keep yourself cool and dry. Reduce the amount of time you spend in hot
and sweaty environments, shower after sweating, wear loose, breathable clothing and especially
if exercising or engaging in anything strenuous, avoid using greasy or oily products on your
hair and skin, limit usage of antibiotics and steroid meds unless absolutely necessary,
reduce stress, and perhaps, most importantly, boost your immune system and take a probiotic! Probiotics help to increase the good bacteria
in your gut. The presence of more good bacteria ultimately
helps in restoring your intestinal flora and makes it harder for yeasts to overgrow. I currently take 2 capsules of Nature’s
Bounty Ultra Strength Probiotics 10 every night. Here is another brand by Renew Life and the
reviews I’ve read seem to be pretty stellar. The links to both of these products are in
the description box below so check them out for yourself. Whichever you choose, consistency does pay
off here! Now, I also like to boost my immune system
by taking a multivitamin. I’m currently taking One-A-Day for Women. But any good multivitamin should work. Again, consistency is key. Now, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention
how yeast are a major part of our lives. Without yeast, we wouldn’t have bread, Portobello
mushroom burgers, wine, beer and so much more! I can appreciate that! For more information on Pityrosporum folliculitis,

pretty frequently. If you liked this video, please give it a

    IT IS POSSIBLE TO CURE PITYROSPORUM FOLLICULITIS. I did it, and so can you. You must do a sugar detox. No sugars, NO GRAINS at least 10 days. Search "candida diet" and follow it until you are cured, and go organic!!! this makes all the difference. after your sugar detox you can begin to topically treat with OIL OF OREGANO. Don't cheap out on this- its not expensive anyways and get one with a HIGH "CARVACROL" CONTENT. 3 drops diluted in 1-2 tablespoons of cold processed, virgin coconut oil. Mix well with hands and apply to the affected area every night before bed. WASH your sheets EVERY night. Or, wear clothing that covers the area when you sleep and wash that every night. This prevents the spores from spreading. Good Luck and do not lose hope! God with us.
