Anyone else dealing with Demodex Mites? What helps?

Hi - Just seeing your post about demodex since I do not go on this website very often because, frankly, have not received any meaningful help regarding my demodex overgrowth. I did find a demodex group on Facebook that you may want to search for on the FB website. I have suffered with this overgrowth for three years with it getting progressively worse. One dermatologist said I should talk to someone about the anxieties I was feeling…not been back to her! Another was interested in the NIH article I showed her but let me know she believed I did not have demodex mites. All this to say, I use Cliradex and Optase wipes, Hydroclorious acid spray, cold packs on my face because they do not like cold. My eye doctor has diagnosed me with blepharitis but cannot do much for it except prescribe erythromycin eye ointment for nightly use. (It is my understanding that FDA is now reviewing eye drops for treatment of demo. mites that, if approved, will be available later this year.) Am thankful for cold weather, however, as you know, they become active at dusk no matter the season. Again, I highly suggest that you find the FB group because there are many suggestions for coping. Also, look up Natural Genesis products. Their products have been helpful also. Sorry to be so long; have been up since 3 am because of these terrible pests.

It is spelled Natural Ginesis and their Kleen Green was very effective with skin mites.
