    Maria St., is the treatment for demodex around your eyes still working for you?

    I don't use it anymore, because its smell started to make me dizzy. My eyes are dry and occasionally burning since I stopped it. My next step is going to be oral ivermectin.

    All the ocular success stories I've read had to do with killing demodex, and a low carb diet.. Have you heard of anyone else having success with anything other than the above mentioned?

    After stopping a keto diet (less than 50g carb per day) I feel my eyes are less dry. My eyelids were actually twitching the last three months on keto but haven't twitched since I went back to eating carbs about a month or so ago.

    My eyes are still dry, red and irritated however along with my lids.

    The more carbs I eat, the worse I am for the most part. I am back using my doxycycline . I tried Rifaximin and was in remission for a few days, but it all came back..

    It always comes back. I'm gunna have to come to accept it's only manageable.

    What do you mean by "anything other", are you asking about a treatment that is not targeted against demodex?

    Yeah that's what I meant. Most success stories I have read for ocular symptoms are either by clearing demodex or by diet..

    Maria, when you were treating demodex, did your eyes clear up?

    The diet helps with demodex too,because it reduces the inflammation. Rosacea+blefaritis=most probably demodex.
    My blefaritis was proven to be caused by demodex,because my doc had seen it under the microscope. My eyes cleared up and their dryness almost went away after applying tto,at least untill now. I think that there is something left behind,I suspect that I have demodex brevis,which is not that easy to reach with topicals.

    That's great that at least you know the why behind the inflammation! I'm still searching..
