    Can you still have a demodex issue even if you just have redness , flaking , burning sensation , slight itching ? No p and p 's ? Or do you have to have the p and p's to determine its demodex ?

    If you don't have P and Ps, then you probably have type 1 rosacea, or possibly mild seborrheic dermatitis. If that's the case, vbeam and metrogel with a definite moisturizer sunblock to be worn every day and night would probably be the way to go, soolantra is used to kill skin mites that contribute to the P and Ps....

    Thank you for your response ! Yes the first derm I saw said it was SD . Now this second derm said Rosacea . I am using the sulfur / sulfacetamide wash 2x daily right now . It seems to be helping with the redness . My face does not feel as inflamed and burning like it use to . It still stings a bit but not like before . I just started to use a sunblock again . But am going very slowly with it . Because in the past anything I put on my face burned .
    Is rosacea type 1 caused by mites then ? Or something else ?

    Interesting about the bacillus bacteria. The first biopsy done by first dermatologist should have been a the
    big AH-HA for the doctor but the second dermatologist is just more thorough. Its amazing that the pathologist
    and other specialists looking at the biopsy had no clue. Every time I read about weakened immune system, they
    mentioned only Leukemia. But Lymphoma is different but still a blood cancer. I don't think people with other cancers
    are as susceptible. Maybe they are but just not seeing it other than blood cancers. Thank you for responding.
    I appreciate it.
    Sorry, and I forgot the most important part, they called it a "granulomatous inflammation" and then added: ruptured inclusion cyst, rosacea fungus or TB. Hope that helps.

    Aww ok I get it so the mites just cause the P and p's . So I assume I do not have the mites then . Do you know if the Metrogel is ok to use for SD . I know alot of people with Rosacea use Metro . Because its an antibiotic . I am really confused as to what I have . My redness seems to have gotten much better . But my skin still feels stingy and burning . Not as bad as before but still there . I wash 2 x daily with the sulfur wash . They also gave me a sulfur cream which I am affraid to try because I know you leave it on . I worry this will be to strong for me sense my skin is sensitive . Do you think I should give the cream a try ?

    Definitely. If you find the sulfur cream too strong, you can use it for 3 days, then take a break for the next few days, restart it,etc. Your skin will adapt.

    Thank you !! Should I start off with using the cream for half of the day , then work up to a full day ? OR , Should I put the cream on in the AM and wash it off before bed ? Not sure weather to start off slow or go full force ? I started off slow with the wash meaning ...I did the wash once a day for 1 week with leaving it on for 5 seconds . Then week 2 I still used once a day up worked up to washing it off in 10 seconds . Then week 3 I started 2 x a day , rubbing it in gently for 10 seconds each time . The bottle of wash says to massage it into the skin for 10 to 20 seconds each time then rinse . Since my skin is sensitive I used this wash with caution . Just to see how my skin would take it . So far no drying . Actually my skin is oily again , Weird ! Probably because my pores were plugged and the sulfur un plugged them . Just a hunch .

    Choose a full force approach. As to your skin oiliness, if you had demodex before, it caused you dryness, because it feeds on sebum. Now that it's killed, your skin returns to its normal state.

    Thank you for the advice MariaSt ! I will do the full force approach . Yes most of my skin is normal again which is oily . There are still some dry patches on both my cheeks . Well they are more flaky patches I should say . But my forehead and sides of face near hairline are oily again . Which like I said , is normal for me . But prior to this they were indeed dry . From the Rosacea or SD . Still have not figured out which one it is yet . Even my last derm said it still could be SD but he thought it was Rosacea . Anyway , It almost felt like I had a layer of dry skin on my face . At the end of the day I felt the oil but it was masked by the top layer of dryness . If this makes sense >? Maria , May I ask , do you Have Rosacea or another skin disorder ?
