Demodectic Rosacea

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I found that article and the relevant sections in Rosacea 101 very helpful. It gives a great overview and history on the relationship between Demodex and Roscea. It also recommends some treatments which were very helpful.

Here are my two remaining questions:

1. Is there a step by step guide to removing demodex out there? I see a lot of treatments, but it would be helpful to have them all in one place with instructions. (Ex: Start by taking X mg of ZZ cream or Ivermectin every day. Change your bedsheets/pillow cases every two days. Perform lid scrubs once a day).

2. Has there been evidence of anyone's flushing rosacea (subtype 1) getting better after any of these methods?

Thank you,

- Russell
