Anyone else dealing with Demodex Mites? What helps?

@gottab When I looked up Grover's Disease and demodex mites, there are articles that point to the fact that the two are probably related. And that is why you seem to find what you did, nothing specific to the mites, but connected to Grover's disease. Does this make sense to you?

While I do not have issues with either condition, I am nonetheless curious to hear from you what your experience is, and how you are handling it all. Tell me all about it!

Hiya. I dong know what I’ve been dealing with as the doctors, specialists and dermatologist hadn’t a clue. It was some sort of mite that was really hardy and nothing killed it completely. Then I used 100 per cent alcohol hand sanitizer- I put it in a spray bottle. Wow what a difference. After a week of using it is almost gone. I had tried all the creams,pemetherin etc but this was what actually worked. Good luck.

We all have Demodex mites in our skin, and they are controlled by our immune systems (general and skin). If something happens to our immune system, and it is severe enough (can vary by person) the mites will not only over-populate, but grow larger and become visible. There are dozens of things that can affect the immune system, and usually it takes more than one to cause demodicosis. Things like autoimmune diseases such as Grover’s disease, diabetes, MS, lupus, etc, but also severe stress, toxins like mold, Lyme disease, Covid, other viruses, hormone issues (common with pregnancy), etc. In my experience Lyme disease and toxic mold (with toxoplasmosis, etc) are very common. Because it is an autoimmune condition, is why Grover’s disease or other autoimmune conditions pop up in the search. I have a FB page that I’ve worked on for 6 years that contains information and remedies. I did find a doctor to treat it, and he approves of my page. The address is Barbaras Demodex III. I hope this helps.
