    I feel bad posting as often as I do, I think it's probably bad for just a few people to dominate discussion as it ends up being just about those people's specific situations which crowd out other...

    Is there a reason you're not asking a pharmacist to compound this for you?

    It's not really different, I have what MissM had. It's just that most dermatologists don't break it down that far. They just tell us "it's caused by demodex" and they don't specify more than that. In...

    I'm sorry you've had this experience, it sounds like the same experience my mother has had. There are exceptions (like my dermatologist who also did a pathology residency and therefore is not limited...

    If we're talking about the same disease (demodex brevis), you can't completely eradicate it. It's a microorganism that lives on human skin under normal conditions. The goal isn't complete...

    I've never heard that word (pityriasis) used for demodex before. We just call it demodectic rosacea. I was diagnosed (after 5 years) with demodex in August and have been treating it very successfully...

    Be aware that some of those practices - for example, dry skin brushing, which is not exactly what you're doing - are associated with skin irritation, so be careful.

    I didn't want to be the one to say it but... I find it very strange that someone would come here AFTER going into remission. Sounds like an ad to me.

    I have suspected vitamin malabsorption without measurable deficiency. The levels in my blood are normal but maybe my body can't utilize the vitamins. I'll probably follow up on it in a couple weeks.
