    Thanks for the update, sejon. Glad to hear your skin is doing well.

    Like you I've had nothing but positive results using vitamin D topically, including the oiliness of skin as you mentioned. It's...

    It's interesting you say this. This has also been my experience and I can never quite figure out if it's demodex or malassezia related.

    I've recently started using climbazole mixed in MCT oil....

    It's nice to see that there is a new study concerning the use of benzyl benzoate, though it was also combined with crotamiton. A bit of a shame that it lasted less than 90-120 days given demodex life...
  4. Update time: Things are going better than ever...

    Update time:

    Things are going better than ever which is down to two discoveries.

    Firstly, I found that there is no need to use the ciclopirox cream overnight. I can leave it on my skin for...

    Selsun has become my go-to for my hair and body issues. I love how it doesn't actually dry these areas out.

    It's always struck me as strange how there are countless people who say that a product...

    I was wondering how you were getting along with your custom sulphur mix. It sounds like you now have a simple regimen that effectively treats both demodex and malassezia conditions. That experience...

    It's been a few months since I last posted. I've been trying some products I haven't used before with promising results.

    I've completely stopped using ZZ cream. It's okay but it isn't really the...

    I found the masks to be helpful for malassesiza. I only stopped because I thought that overnight applications would be enough to treat both, even at a weaker concentration. Going forward I think it's...

    I stopped using the mask and have been using oat groats overnight for the past week and my final conclusion is that at a 5:1 ratio it is useless for seb derm but mostly effective on demodex. My seb...

    The only lotion I have at hand to mix with after the initial mixing with glycerin is Hada Labo but that doesn't mix particularly well. I'm guessing aloe vera and anything else water based will be the...

    So the sulphur powder and glycerin arrived. I used a digital measuring spoon to accurately make a mixture that contains 20% sulphur. It's been sitting on my skin for the past few hours with no...

    Thanks, sejon, I'll try to mix with some glycerin to make maybe a 25% mix. If I can handle Nu-Stock, it must be the polyethylene glycol that doesn't agree with my skin.

    I have a couple of theories. I use a 2:1 ratio for the mask but a 5:1 ratio overnight, which might not be quite powerful enough. Or if it is then perhaps the effect on the skin isn't quite the same...
  14. sejon, I'm probably going to give up on oat...

    sejon, I'm probably going to give up on oat groats as an overnight demodex treatment and return to good old dependable sulphur. I'd prefer not to use ZZ cream again due to the ingredients in it that...

    I maintain that oat groats used as mask is great, but am not convinced it is a suitable overnight treatment for demodex. Perhaps it is down to the mechanism of how it works that doesn't lend itself...

    No pimples. I think the cause of those was using the filtrate as an overnight treatment, which is insufficient to control demodex.

    The skin doesn't peel off in the sense that I would be able to take some tweezers and do so. It's more like surface shedding where if I scratch my skin in the areas you see in the images the skin...

    The past few days I've experienced something quite interesting with applying the mask twice a day for 15-20 minutes. I mixed to a 2:1 ratio (water:oat groat). The first application results in visibly...

    It's a shame precipitated sulphur is so hard to find. I can only find it with a prescription or for 30 for 500g. I'm willing to pay that amount but a 20 fee is added if the order total is below a...

    I remember thinking the same when I first stated to use Nu-Stock. I recall Nu-Stock being the most effective topical I used, which was likely down to its higher sulphur content. I stopped because of...

    The mask is great but I'm not convinced the filtrate is sufficient for overnight use. Last night I actually used the mask overnight and felt it was better with no crawling sensations experienced. It...

    The beard does indeed sound like a very stubborn area. The biofilm theory also makes sense, considering almost everyone seems to find something that initially works and then suddenly stops working....

    When I wrote that it was harsh it was right after I applied the mask and washed my face. Afterwards my skin calmed down, so it's probably not too much of an issue. When on the skin it can feel a bit...

    Since having used the more finely ground oats I've actually experienced more of a reaction. The first night there was quite the increase in crawling as if I really bothered the mites. I woke up to a...

    I didn't even think of that! Good thing I didn't use it yesterday, as the instructions say not to add water. The coffee grinder does a great job at grinding to powder quickly - much more efficient...
