Scalp Parasites.

Post  Decro435 on Fri Sep 17, 2010 10:29 pm

Scalp Inflammation is the worst it's ever been. I was thinking about it and I have questions on it. Is there any chance that I have some parasite that feeds off DHT or sebum?. I notice that when I drink alcohol that I never have the "Itch". Also, when I first started Iodine, there was no itch either, could it be that taking either of these internally kills the parasite?. Maybe both of these just mess with my hormones?. I know there is a direct relation between DHT and my scalp itch because Finasteride eliminated it.

If I was to go about testing this theory, what would be the best way to kill the scalp parasites?. I want the most potent parasite killer, not the healthiest, just to test this out. Topicals don't seem to be that effective. Iodine was brilliant for the first week, maybe then the parasites became immune to it?

Any sense in this?.

Im really interested in this as well. Nothing has got rid of my itching/sore scalp, and my shedding has only got worse. Before starting supps I would have 5 hairs on my pillow, now I have around 30. My hair loss only started a few months after the itching started so i reckon if I can control the itch then im going to be in a better place. My itching also started after a very dry winter in which I had the heater on 24/7.

As an aside for you decro. You mentioned you don't get the itch when you drink. If i'm right I believe alcohol increases T3 production which is often what hypothyroid people are low in.

i think its entirely possible we all have parasites that feed off dht. this was an idea i first heard from a guy that used to post as dex on regrowth who many here will recall. i m personally looking at this issue again not only by looking at what will tackle the result of parasites but preventing the parasites from functioning in the first place. from a dietary perspective this means im avoiding sugars or anything that breaks down rapidly into sugar, also to deal with the incumbent parasites i m looking at azoles, azealic acid, garlic, acv etc. if there is no substance in this theory it seems to me that all anti parasitic measures seem to help with mpb anyway which leads me to think this all a bit too coincidental. there are many here who are far more knowledgeable than me, i m just working on trial and error on myself.

If parasites were a problem, why would the whole scalp not go bald?. Maybe because they only effect the DHT sensitive hair?.

I've felt "shivers" in my scalp during inflammation. Only really thought that it could be related to Demodex or Maleszia Yeast.

http://www.hairloss-research.org/UpdateMalesszia4-09.html

The thing that really made me think that I might have a problem, was the fact that Iodine orignally eliminated scalp inflammation within several minutes. Maybe it killed off the parasites, which since have become immune to Iodine. Would it be that easy for them to become immune, within a week or two?.

Also, about the white gunk at the bottom of shed hair follicles. Is this any indication that there are parasites in my scalp?.

Anyone have any similar experience with the alcohol situation?. There could be several reasons for this, Alcohol lowers Testosterone levels right?.

So what could I take internally that would almost certainly destroy any scalp parasites so I can test this theory. I'm looking for the most potent internal, not the healthiest.

I believe what happens is that during puberty, your IGF-1 levels increase, causing a drop in SHBG/increase in free-testosterone which converts into DHT in sebaceous -glands signaling enlargement of the sebaceous-glands and excess sebum productionů this is also what causes acne.

The excess sebum feeds a yeast/fungus named Malassezia-furfur, which begins to multiply. The immune-system picks-up on this fungus and attacks it with inflammation.

After puberty your IGFBP's and SHBG are supposed to increase again, just like after infancy... but due to various reasons (mainly diet, exercise and environment), the IGFBP's and SHBG stay depressed allowing this to happen constantly. If this imbalance is not restored, it can, over time can cause prostate-enlargement, diabetes and heart-disease.


Decro, please read the follow study: http://www.canibaisereis.com/download/milk-consumption-acne.pdf I strongly believe this will answer some of your questions!

The reason (I think) why the very top of the scalp balds and the sides don't, are due to the large amount of sebaceous-glands located on the scalp compared to the sides, therefore the fungus/yeast is concentrated on the scalp and less on the sides, thou I do strongly believe the sides are negatively affected as well.

Seems like a plausible explanation. What about the guys who don't suffer inflammation though?.

Also, the sides of my head are going just as fast as the top, I guess this in your theory just mean that the glands on the sides are effected like the top.

What is the most effective way to combat Malassezia-furfur internally and externally?. Also how is your battle coming along?.

Internally I use the McDougall-diet to control the hormonal aspect of sebaceous-activity (the McDougall-diet is shown to drastically increase IGFBP's and SHBG) combined with fasting. Externally I use Dr. Bronners Magic Peppermint Soap and Nizoral-1%, along with scalp exfoliation with comb.

My progresses is great, a year ago, I thought I was going to be bald is less than a year, I was loosing 300 plus hairs a day and my scalp was shiny and inflamed, however once I cleaned up my diet, began to exercise with some fasting, it stopped. When I first used the Dr. Bronners Magic Peppermint soap I had loads and loads of dead-skin-cell build-up on my scalp, which I was able to comb off my scalp... I was in disbelief of how much build-up I had on my scalp! I could literally spend hours combing thru may hair after using the Dr. Bronners, no hair would fall only heaps and heaps of white sebum/skin. Anyhow, the inflammation is beginning to soften; thou I strongly believe the most common cause of excess inflammation is body-fat and its cytokines it produces. Now my hair doesn't fall out any more. I believe that hair-health has to due with scalp-health, just like grass and dirt.

So you don't fully blame Malassezia furfur for your inflammation?.

I see it's treated with Ketoconazole in dogs and in humans with Pityriasis versicolor. Selenium Sulfide is also used, the active ingredient in Selsun Blue, which has been used for hair loss. Malassezia furfur is said to be the least susceptible malassezia to ketoconazole.

Could the right anti-fungal regimen eliminate my inflammation?.

i d like to draw peoples attention to micocanzole (rather than ketocanozole) which is being discussed on various forums at present.
