Hi @medical1question and welcome. I can imagine that ongoing symptoms with no relief is quite frustrating.

I am inviting @gottab, @ainsleigh, and @markopolo who have mentioned Demodex here on Connect.

- Human Demodex Mite: The Versatile Mite of Dermatological Importance https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3884930/#!po=0.877193

Are you immunocompromised in any other way?

Thank you, Amanda. I’ve read this abstract, and it’s a good one. No, I’m not immunocom-
promised to my knowledge. I’ve had two ANA that have come back negative for Lupus; however, my daughter was diagnosed with Lupus about a year ago.

I can't deal! I have psoriasis!
I believe I have an infestation of dermodex blepharitis living on my scalp, face and lids maybe even my privates! All the doctors I've seen haven't used any technology to see them so they think I'm just bugging out! Also got a case of Lice. I'm going crazy with these parasites and I don't want to pass it on to my 15 year old son! I need help desperately seeking Norma!
