i have been reserching, trying to find a home remedy to kill mites on the skin. i do believe mites are the cause of rosacea. Any way i found alot of imfo. about oil of oregano & how it can kill mites..... i happen to have some from when the dentist recomended it for killing any bacterial after mouth surgery. i put a little on my face where i have the rosacea and i took 2 drops in my mouth ( taste like gasoline ) so i am going to start a diary & see if this is as good as the zz cream i have heard so much about. My face was burning a bit when i put it on & it is very red, but the redness goes down, i think i will try this at night time so i don't smell like a oregano leaf lol lol. So today is the first day of trying this, i will update how i'm doing. With the zz cream they say it takes 90 days to completely kill the mites, so i will try this for 90 days.
