So, I've been on clindamycin and Metro Gel for about 2 months. Really, it hasn't done anything. Redness might be slightly better but the demodex is still clearly an issue.
My doctor called in some metronidazole and warned me about some scary side effects (headaches, neurological stuff, becoming violently ill with alcohol which is easy enough to avoid), so naturally I'm pretty hesitant to use it. However, I'm going to if what I'm doing now doesn't work.
I've heard that Tea Tree Oil can have amazing effects on demodex, so I'm using the HerbPharm stuff and giving it a whirl for a few days, seeing what happens.
I'm on day 2 and so far not much, as I expected.
Have any of you tried tea tree oil? Any success? I would seriously love to not spend 20 minutes a day putting on makeup. Hoping something will work soon. I was tested for lupus too, but luckily that came back negative.
thanks in advance.
