Hey there, just wanted to share a discovery I made courtesy of earthclinic.com. Apparently a woman who was researching how to kill her demodex infestation discovered that dry mustard, when combined with water, kills demodex on contact.
WARNING: dry mustard is an extreme irritant and putting it on the skin standalone causes burns and blisters. It MUST be diluted in a water-based product of choice, whether that's glycerin, body lotion, hair conditioner or etc. I urge anyone who wants to try this to follow the directions posted at earthclinic.com here -> http://www.earthclinic.com/CURES/mite_infestation.html
The new reply was 01/03/2012, so look for the posting under 'replies' with that date.
I've already tried it on my face today by mixing some dry mustard with water, let sit for 10 minutes and then mixing with a copious amount of skin lotion. At night, will continue to do the borax/hp treatment. When my jojoba oil comes in, I'll dot 50% tto on the spots as well. Will let people know how it goes.
I wonder though, since demodex are relentless it seems I have to do it every day, but don't you have to give your skin a break in order for it to heal?
