The Great Mite Massacre !! Oral Ivermectin (Stromectol) and 1% ivermectin cream (Soolantra) ... the power to kill the full body Demodex infestation that has tortured me for 12 years (and made me one heck of a good make-up artist!)
YES! It's possible to beat these wretched critters so hang in there if you feel hopeless like I did. I need beauty sleep to strenghten that all-important immune system, but I'll post details & a few helpful websites in a few days.
For now, hunt down a dermatologist who is knowledgeable AND Up To Date about Demodex and check out info about oral ivermectin (Stromectol). I was prescribed a 4 week supply : 12 mg Once a Week for 4 Weeks. ( mg based on weight).
