Thank you for sharing this, very interesting article, I read the entire thing word for word. It basically restates a lot of the key things I already know about Malassezia yeast. But from my understanding, there is no direct correlation between EC and MY. However, it could be a sign of an autoimmune response that is shown through my seb. derm. and ec. Maybe an allergy of some sort. I will rule out inflammation, because I eat a strict anti inflammatory diet, get adequate exercise, and do all the right things to stop inflammation. Pimecrolimus has been shown to be effective against seb derm, and some people with ec cured theirs with a calcineurin inhibitor. I think I might have to bite the bullet one day and ask for a prescription. There is such an abundance of information in that article, I will have to dissect it slowly and use my intuition to get to the bottom of this. Thanks longterm, and goodluck to you.
