    Wow! Your photos can be used as an advertisement for zz cream. Do you still use it every day?

    Hi MariaSt, thank you, yes I still use it every day but as mentioned, I can't seem to get rid of the pustules.

    Hi All,

    I just wanted to give you a short update on the current state of my skin. After many failed attempts to get rid of my pustules and skin lesions, I have managed to convince a local derm to put me on low dose Accutane. The idea is to use it for a relatively long period of time in order to shrink the oil glands and make the mites' lives more difficult. I am aware that many people are skeptical about isotretinoin, but after four months of use, I have finally been free of pimples, my scalp is no longer itchy, my skin is less oily than it has ever been, and more importantly, I am less psychologically distressed than I have been in the past couple years. My blood results are good, too, and I have not experienced any side effects. That being said, the drug has not affected the redness on my face. I hope this helps.

    I think I have the same condition as the original poster, I'd love to know if you got it resolved and got clear skin.

    Some dermatologists using the combined oral anti-parasitic treatment of both oral Ivermectin and oral Metrondiazole do prescribe it for up to one month or even 6 weeks. One dose of oral Ivermectin is given weekly in all cases. They may also vary the size of the oral Metronidazole dosage from between 500 mg /day one time per day to 750 mg/day given in doses of 250mg/dose.

    The original medical study published in the May 2013 Journal of Infectious Diseases prescribed a total of 2 doses of the oral Ivermectin given once per week based on body weight. And simultaneously, the patients took oral Metronidazole 3 times a day using 250mg/dose.
