    I wonder if they have considered using Oral Metronnidazole in combination with Oral Ivermectin as for the highly effective 2 week oral treatment for demodetic Rosacea (aka Demodicosis)?
    Oral Ivermectin alone and Oral Metronidazole alone can be effective in treating demodex parasite infestations. But together they work even better. And based on the demodex medical treatment study, the drugs are safe when given together. https://www.sciencedirect.com/scienc...0197121201315X

    Oral Ivermectin is also being investigated to treat COVID-19. Its interesting that anti-parasitic drugs are showing promise against fighting this potentially deadly virus.

    Both Oral Metronidazole (Flagyll) and Oral Ivermectin are existing drugs and both available as cheap generics. Both are on the WHO's list of Essential Medicines due to their ability to treat parasitic infections. That list of Essential Drugs is intended to be made indefinitely.

    Virus has never, ever been ruled out as a cause of rosacea. For over a hundred years medical science in the West has concentrated on bacteria. The Ukrainians, Russians and Eastern countries concentrated more on bacteriophage, a virus, as an antibiotic than the West did. Since HIV Western medicine has given a lot more attention to virus studies and the result has been more antiviral treatments. But when it comes to rosacea there is such a lack of interest in studying whether virus has anything to do with rosacea, and who would fund such a study? For more information click here.

    An overlooked fact is that virus in the human body comprises more weight than bacteria by a factor of ten times.
