Doctors seem to ignore the damage and unrest a person can suffer from an infestation of demodex. I am old, they say it is frequent. It makes my skin ugly, they are surprised I care because of my age. And what they prescribe does nothing, cost a lot, and it is not covered by any insurances.
I will fight and win, but they are so active at night I barely sleep a couple of hours per nights. I could do with some advices from people who have experience something similar. Thanks in advance for helping me.

Hi Antbl, check out the following site http://www.demodexsolutions.com/default.asp...
It shows how to test for demodex mites, and other info about the mites. Good luck, there are few people on here who have demodex mites.

Just about everyone has demodex mites . It is when someones immune system is so terribly compromised that they start to take over as well as a multitude of other pathogens. Demodex normally feed on someone who has a yeast infection, another immune compromising factor.

Instead of treating demodex with some chemical that further takes down the immune system you should work on your internal health.

Needpeace34 do you know what google is? It's a good place to go learn something, you should try it.

If demodex is your problem you need to start by cleaning up your diet then add green tea which is high in tannins. Tannins have antifungal and anti bacterial qualities. Raspberries contain ellagic acid which kills internal fungal growths over time, read candida, EA does this by inhibiting chaiten synthase 2 which is an enzyme the fungus use for their cell walls. Just raspberries and water in a blender, once a day and in a month or two your candida will be gone. You should read labels and take sugar out of your diet. For example Pfarm whole grain bread second ingredient is sugar, don't eat that, get Ezekiel bread. Don't eat sugary fruits, citrus and berries are fine. You don't need some very restrictive candida diet.

If you do that then the "demodex" problem will go away. The mites like rotting stuff, quit rotting and you'll be fine.

Thanks for letting me know about google! I never heard of it. If you read her other post she wants to test to find out if she has demodex mite. That's why in posted the link. Ok genius. I don't understand your need to be nasty to people.

Demodex mites are the most common microscopic ectoparasite found in the human skin. The rate of Demodex infestation increases with age, being observed in 84% of the population at age 60 and in 100% of those older than 70 years

If you understood my post you would realize that everyone has them and demodex is not the problem so why would you want a test for something everyone has?

The problem is something else. I get frustrated with people like you who consistently put out bad information because "they're just trying to help".
Putting out bad info doesn't help anyone but you feel good about yourself.

Everything you have posted that I've read has been nonsense.

That's what I was trying to tell you if you bothered to read the link I posted, by the way.

Demodex is not the problem it is an underlying health problem that is causing her body to be a good environment for demodex to breed, get it?

LoL ok Fred, yes everyone has demodex. She wanted to see if she has a large number. You should be the only one who should post because your so smart. I don't see the point of you attacking everyone on the forum. Good luck, you are truly a nasty person, but you already know that.

Well since I offered an actual solution to the problem and you just offered a wild goose chase maybe you should refrain from posting.

If you posted something that made sense to agree with I would have been agreeable but to people like you it is not an actual solution that is important but instead what comes out of your mouth.

I don't need luck I am cured and you are not.

How did I offer wild goose chase? She asked a question and I answered it. She wants to know how to test for mites. I can careless if you agree with what I post. I'm not posting it for you. You have said your cured a whole bunch of times. I have read old posts. I hope you are this time.

I would just like to state for the record that neither myself, nor any of my species have ever infected lunatic fred or any of his aliases. We do not want to catch his stupidity.

I am in my 85 years now and having a broken knee and difficulties for so long with it has damaged my hip of the other side, plus the snow and icy sidewalks, I have not gone out for months and it seems to be a factor in the demodex infestation. No, I do not have yeast or candida, never did. And I am 99% vegetarian. I do not used spices much and as little as possible sugar and salt and no alcool. My mind is clear, I speak several languages still and am still learning one more, mostly as an exercise. I am surprised when someone is either rude or nasty to me but I do not take it personally. Sorry, Fred! I agree that something else may trigger this infestation. Could it be age? I hope it is not my cat... I am trying to develop a remedy to control these demodex enough to live in ..peace. The discomfort is damaging my life in too many ways. I will post what I do and the degree of success i obtain. I did fight scabbies when I was 11 with no help from medicine, it was the war we had none. And I won! If anyone wants to help, It will be great. Thanks

I am guessing that some of us must have discovered a way to minimize the demodex's, even for a few days. I read that Borax has helped but no advices as what to mix it with. I am making a cream with 4 tablespoons of very thick oat flour very thick mixed with one teaspoon of 100% tea tree oil, 2 tsp of castor oil, I tried it and it seemed to work about 30% in stopping the crawling, but only for 1/2 a day. It became too liquid, and only minimized the crawling by 30%. I did not use it in my hair, not having enough of it. it felt too oily, forcing me to wash it with soap instead of, ideally, rinsing. What else could i add to it? And what vitamines would rebuilt my immunity?
