I am finding that to keep the papules under control I am using the Ivermectin solution pretty much everyday. I went 3 days with out using it and I have a few papules on my cheeks today. Once I start using the Ivermectin again they disapear within a couple of days.
This in mind Dave I would have to say that the results aren't as good as with the Ivermectin on the trial. I didn't get any papules back for months after I stopped using it. The preparation that it was also in was also very moisturising and I didn't have to use anything else.
Though with the Jojoba my skin has gotten very soft, soft enough that my husband commented on how good it felt.
Rop, I find that once my papules are under control the redness diminishes as well, so does the burning.
I did have a flush the other day but I had an extreemly difficult patient who made me incredibly furious. My flushes used to last pretty much the day but it had settled within a couple of hours.

You make a good point Rachel, I've only been using the ivermectin 2 times per week on average. Perhaps I need to use it more often to see good results.
my bad again but i've re-read the entire thread
@rachzon or any other ppl here:
do you have only papules or pustules also? are they painful/itchy? also do their number increase after gym, sex or spicy food? maybe u can provide a photo? thanks!
Bare in mind, demodex can live off the body on bedding/towels for at least 24 hours. If you heat your pillow in a tumble dryer on hot (over 55C) for 10 minutes, it will kill any mite on it.
Wisitar I am trying to use it as I used it on the trial which was daily. I am not using it in the strength that you are either. I have been wetting the cotton ball with water and then barely rewetting with the Ivermectin. I found that if I used it straight it stung and dried my skin out too much making it very flaky and taut.
kranekrane I really only get papules, some very big. My face used to be very painful and very itchy, that at least has subsided.
How is ivermectin treatment coming along? Is it helping you with the redness / flushing ?? Does ivermectin actually reduce flushing ??
Is this product usable for killing demodex:
