If you are tired of seeking a way to completely get rid of Demodex mites, read this post carefully and we will attempt to outline the information you need to get started on the right path!

What are Demodex mites?

For those who don’t know about Demodex mites, here is a brief explanation of what they really are.

Demodex mites are 8-legged microscopic parasites that are related to spiders, ticks, and other arachnids. Two species live on the human skin – Demodex Folliculorum and Demodex Brevis. They live under the skin, and when a high population is found, it can link to many skin and hair problems.

Now that you have some knowledge about Demodex mites, let’s explain how to eliminate these tiny mites.

Which products or medicine can really help get rid of Demodex mites?

Most people researching mites have encountered lots of products that claim to help you get rid of your Demodex mites issues but actually don’t. Maybe you’ve tried some products that make your Demodex issues worse or products that temporarily improved your symptoms, but the problems have come right back.

You may have tried many treatment methods and products, but didn’t reach a satisfying result. So here are some common ways that Demodex sufferers often try or consider.

Using Roaccutane

You’ve definitely heard about Roaccutane before. Maybe one of your friends or acquaintances, or perhaps you yourself, have used medicine with the name of Roaccutane or Accutane (with the scientific name of Isotretinoin) as a drug of last resort for solving severe acne. You are probably aware of the terrible side effects of this drug.

Simply said, choosing any drug with substantial side effects can’t be the right choice for you, and there is no need to mention that it’s “just for acne” when as if mites are at the root of the problem, they need to be dealt with.

Using Antibiotics

Many people have this weird concept that if there is a skin problem like acne, rosacea, etc., antibiotics help alleviate them. Although, in some cases, where these symptoms have a source of infection, it may help; it definitely won’t work for Demodex mite related issues. The reason is that bacteria inside a mite may not be vulnerable to antibiotics as they are protected by the mite’s exterior and are only released after the Demodex liquifies inside the follicle. So, antibiotics aren’t quite the right answer either.

Tea Tree Oil

If you were beyond those who don’t have any idea about the problem they are suffering from, you might have heard Tea Tree Oil’s name, a famous treatment that claims it can help people get rid of Demodex mite populations.

But is it the right product?

The answer is no.

Despite the widespread name of Tea Tree Oil, making use of this oil not only doesn’t entirely help you get rid of Demodex mites but also will lead to other issues. As Tea Tree Oils are harsh on the skin and hair for long-term use (as you know, the process of wiping out the Demodex mite populations takes at least 3 months), it leads to further problems.

    I’m at the end of my rope. Four doctors, one asked how I was sleeping, and prescribed halidol. Yeah. The er gave a diagnosis of delusional dermatitis. Finally I got a doctor to actually look and listen long enough to see it. ( prolly helped it had grown tremendously by then). Bactrim, flagyl, and a week of steroids later and these guys are still going strong. I’m losing my mind. It’s affecting my life in so many negative ways and I’ve tried everything I can think of. They burrow so deep. No topical seems to reach them. Help me! please. Thank you so much for your time and information. Crystal

      Hey Crystal,

      Sorry to hear you are in such a tough situation, it’s so hard to advocate for yourself when health professionals are pushing back so you are already doing so great! Unfortunately, this is a position that many people are in when they come to us.

      In regard to topicals, you can of course buy ointments, creams, etc. to help with the symptoms but unfortunately, when it comes to treating skin mites you have to do it the right way as when you are using several different treatments, they all interrupt each other and stagger any process.

      Ungex has been operating for 10+ years- and we have helped countless people all over the world save their skin from Demodex. Feel free to reach out and we are happy to provide a free consultation to see if our program is right for you.
