    hello Lorna - if you enter demodex and/or Permethrin and/or Ivermectin in the search gizmo in the upper right corner of the page, you'll find miles of threads where forum members discuss their experiences with these products. the short form is: oral ivermectin doesn't seem to have helped anyone; permethrin isn't spectacularly helpful; and using ivermectin topically seems to help some people. other options for dealing with demodex (most strikingly borax + hydrogen peroxide) are also discussed in those threads.

    The people that tried oral ivermectin didnt take it long enough I believe to see any results.. most took a dose and then took another dose 3-7 days later and that was it. From what I have read it is very hard to kill the mites and you would need to take oral ivermectin for a much longer period of time (3 months for example) and might need to take it more often (every other day for example). Then you would need to continue to take a maintenance dose twice a month.
