I have demodex mites on my face. I am sure I have them on my scalp and places on my body too. I've read about borax. Where do I purchse this? Walmart?
Also, I have read that borax and hydrogen peroxide in a tub is good. What should the measurements/amount be?
I also read that instead of borax and HP, that I could use Epsom salt and baking soda to kill mites. Is this true and what would those measurements to draw a bath?
Can I wet my hair and dip my head and face in a borax/HP bath or a Epsom salt/baking soda bath?
Also, is ACV, good to drink and put on skin as well for killing mites?
I tried Permethrin but am told to use once a week. I could see some improvement at first just off the first two applications and then the next application the next week as well where my red/pink skin was getting lighter and same thing the next week when it was time for the permethrin again. I was told by my derm to use the cream twice a day only ONCE a week meaning only one day a week. But after the second week and second application, I decided to use it everyday the last few days just to see what would happen and my skin started looking pinker all over my face so I stopped. I'm nervous there is a chance the mitesstarted getting immune or if it was a sign that it was working I don't know...I just took yesterday my second and last dosage of 3 pills of 3mg ivermectin. I have unfortunately not seen any improvement from the ivermectin
I just don't know what to do anymore. These mites are taking over my life. I feel them crawling so much, they are eating apart my skin and ruining the texture and creating holes, lines, indents. What else will be a harsh kill method to do? And should I just do the lasers at this point to kill the mites off? I'm worried I'll do the lasers and it'll help temporarily but if I haven't addressed the mites on my scalp and body, they will migrate back to my face.
