I had an earlier version of mites that persisted and thrived in my skin.. like scabies but harder to eliminate. I could BOIL my clothes and it wouldn't phase them. I found the best thing for my body was a manuka honey treatment but I could duplicate it with locally accessed ingredients for less and no wait on the shipping from new zealand. you need to blend ingredients to have it work. the most effective treatment was the mildest surprisingly. their lotion was a dilution of the oil, and it actually stopped the infestation. I would get a bottle of east cape manuka oil and one of lemon myrtle oil and mix in the base of sweet almond carrier oil. 6oz of almond oil to 1oz manuka to 1/2 oz lemon myrtle. These three ingredients make a lot of the product you need. and a small amount of this into an unscented body lotion well mixed, applied several times a day and the rash would be gone. for my clothes and bedding I used Kleen Free (formerly Kleen Green) and several ounces in a warm or hot laundry cycle would get everything if I soaked things first. I understand borax works and it's cheaper, but I haven't tried that. The great thing about Kleen Free is a gallon makes over 10 gallons so you can put it in a spray bottle and spray your hair, your skin, it gets the ones that might be crawling. if you have scabies this will work for you; be persistent, at any notice spray the kleen free solution (i get the unscented) and put the lotion on any active "underskin" area and around that area to keep them from traveling to a new part of the skin. I would sleep with a spray of the kleenfree on my hair in a plastic bag. But you have to treat everything at the same time.. use something on all surfaces, and yourself, make sure your bed is in a zipped mite free casing, the bedding is clean, and then continue this process. you can beat them !! I did it successfully for years, but occasionally I'd have a piece of clothing that I hadn't worn and it would start the infection process and I'd treat everything asap to keep from further invasion.
I use mayonaisse with olive oil (it will say this right on front of jar) then I put 5-7 drops of either clove bud essential oil or tea-tree oil in the mayo. I mix it well and then apply the cold mayo on my head. Then I use a shower cap to sleep in. This helps me so much, its no cure but keeps me sane, while fighting these darn things. Just before bed I use a thin line of dry eye ointment in the bottom eye lids( it will have petroleum and mineral oil as the ingredients) Make sure that you are all ready for bed and all you have to do is make your blurred way to your bed. This has really saved me. Also I have tried vasoline in my eyebrows with some cornstarch on top, and in the private hair areas also. They hate it!!! I do my shower before all of the above and scrub with a backbrush all over with some plain ole shampoo and about 5 drops of tea-tree oil. Avoid the eyes with any essential oil by itself. God bless and may we all find a cure.
COPING WITH INVISIBLE BITING CRITTERS
Boiling menthol rub for colds seems to make these critters settle, or else it soothes the skin. Sulfur type products seem to cool and soothe the skin also.
EC: Menthol Rub = Vicks Vapor Rub or generic version... You can find sulfur type products in the eczema/psoriasis section of a pharmacy.
I've found quite a few good remedies and suggestions for dealing with mite / demodex infestations. But most involve "spot treating" different areas of the body.
One of the most helpful suggestions I've found is to take a bath 100% submersed with a snorkel. This way, all mites, including those that can hide in the eyes, ears, scalp, etc, are going to be treated.
Can anyone give suggestions on WHAT TO PUT INTO THE BATH??
Borax seems like a good idea, but it would take a lot to saturate tub full of water.
~Thanks for all your help my fellow earth clinicians!
Wow so many mite "cures" my head is spinning. I'm here out of pure frustration, been going on 5 years being the only one in the house under attack every night. I've tried everything, just tired of spending thousands on useless so called cures.
(Flower Mound, TX)
i have been going through this and prayed I would die instead of feel this way. I also was only one in house feeling this. Apparently nicotine keeps them off my husband.
Here's how I have reduced the numbers and am making head way. I'm not sure which mites I have so I treated for several kinds. Borax, hydrogen peroxide & water on the body after a shower and used hair dryer to dry it. Tea tree oil in bath water. I bought ovante demodex control products off internet and use them every day- lotion, face cream, eye products, shampoo, body wash. I had tons of eye irritation too. My feet were full of dead skin and it's all gone too...think it may have been dandruf
Wash bedding, clothes and towels every day and add borax to the detergent. I dry hot & long. I throw pillows in a hot dryer every day for 20 minutes
I threw out all pillows. I bought a new mattress.
My body has had much less crawly, itchy, stinging episodes and I think it's getting under control after three weeks. Thank GOD.
After many years of misery, and misdiagnosis, I finally discovered my home of 11 years had severe infestation of mites... Bird and rat mites. Tiny black, crawling, biting 8 legged creatures. (saw them under microscope, and one pest control company identified them too.... Though many others didn't believe me.) Nothing got rid of them, nothing.... Long story, but many years of trying everything... Anyone who came over, was diagnosed with scabies, but the bugs did not act like typical scabies, and the medication didn't work. Pest Control services didn't help much, if at all. I was not able to remove nests, because they were in my walls, attic, chimney, and being a disabled single parent, I had no way of doing it and couldn't afford to pay anyone. My pets suffered too, the neighbors dogs suffered. (Itching, raw skin, hair/fur falling out, etc). We moved, and left everything at our house, or we put it in storage. But many months later, the mites have yet to die off. Things were better, till my children started sneaking things in from storage. Then it started here too...... Itching, crawling, biting, rashes, my hair was falling out in huge amounts, I had bug bites, sores on my scalp and body... I had waist length hair, etc...i just couldn't bring myself to keep going to the Dr.I already bought new furniture, new clothes, etc.... I was checked for lice, bed bugs, etc...many times, and given meds for itch., The permethrin didn't work, only helped deter while I had the meds on me. I found Ted's mange cure and decided to try it. Little by little, I saw many improvements. Internal borax per Ted's recipe, external borax with hydrogen peroxide per Ted's mange treatment. My little dogs feet and legs and ears cleared right up after several soaks over two weeks or so.... (Vet kept saying it was allergies, and nerves) . Years of me dealing with all this, I became very depressed, from lack of sleep, and being so miserable, year after year. I know many people thought I had a mental imbalance. (At first, the bugs bothered everyone, but then it was mostly just me. I am middle aged, female, with immune system abnormalities. Occasionally, if someone new came along, they would get rashes they insisted were from poison ivy or chiggers.) . After about four or five baths in borax and hydrogen peroxide, my dog rarely has had any more problems since....but it has taken me two months of daily treatments on myself, .... At first, it was every day of borax and hydrogen peroxide, with Apple cider vinegar with water rinses. Then I started adding a few drops of iodine to my selsun blue shampoos, and added coconut oil to the borax hair scalp treatment too, to help with dryness, ... and washing my bed linens and blanket daily in hot water and borax and vinegar.... And vacuuming daily, (new filtered vacuum) spraying everything with borax water.(new mattress in a hypoallergenic bed bug and dust proof zipper mattress cover) Mopping with borax, then Murphy's oil soap, and wiping down everything with Windex every day or two at least. My car was also infested, and so it was hard trying to convince everyone they must be very careful with what they bring in from the car, and to shower, shampoo with selsun blue, and vinegar, and wash their jackets and clothes in hot water, and high heat.(soaked pillows in hot water, borax, weekly... Bought new pillows every 2 mo) Raid max foggers every 5-7 days in the car, and in my home helped too. Two cans per room.... (1.5 % cypermethrin, I believe). I was trying to break the life cycle. I plan to use a miticide next time, to be sure they don't build immunity and return.... Had I not had to deal with this nightmare myself, I would think everyone talking about bird and rat mites infesting humans and dogs had mental imbalances. But little by little, things are improving, ..... and I thank this website, and Ted's treatments, and reading about other people's experiences. I am hopeful for the first time in many many years. Things seem to be improving, although I still have a few issues here and there.

I have been Fighting this for a year, selenium shampoo sulfide2.25% get a prescription from your doctor very expensive try to double your prescription don't drink any alcohol while using this shampoo, I use it everyday leave it on your whole body hair and body 10 minutes.if the mites are in your car you need to spray Rid lice spray all over rugs under seats morning and nite, after dark set off a fogger I used raid your choice until they are gone, Its been about two weeks, still feel a little but driveable I vac. Everyday like a (MF) I wipe the car down with gleen green, and still wash clothes in tide with bleach change my sheets on the bed everyday been fogging my house every two weeks with Bifen insec.order it on Amazon doesnt have a strong odor.clean my floors steam cleaner it took a year to finally figure it out I have been going I finally start feeling normal. Good luck. I hope this helps anyone so they don't have to suffer a whole year
I got what I think is demodex mites. It took me 9 months to get rid of them but would have been much shorter if I had done what got rid of them for me earlier. I tried tea tree oil, neem oil, ivermectrin the list goes on and on. Here is what did it.
I used dry mustard (bought in large container from amazon) in my shampoo and body wash every day. You have to figure out how much you can do without burning. I started with a 1/2 teaspoon and worked up to 1 teaspoon, mix with 1 tsp of cold water and the shampoo. Mix it up and apply and leave on for 5 minutes. Keep away from eyes. Then I would do the same and add Dove's body soap, mix it and turn off the shower and apply all over my body and let it sit for 5 minutes. (my face couldn't handle mustard, burned) If it burns anywhere, rinse it off immediatly and use less in that area next time. Then rinse it off. I also used diatomaceous earth on my legs every night, just rubbed it in. Sometimes I had to get up when it was real bad and rub it in 2 or 3 times but always got them to quiet down so I could sleep.
When the infestation was at its worst, I took a bath with a cup of borax, cup of epsom salts and 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide. It gave me instant relief. I would lay on my side and put 1/2 my face in the water (to my nose so I could breathe, keep eyes closed) for a few minutes turn over and do the other side.
I kept a bottle of 1 cup hydrogen peroxide, 1 cup apple cider vinegar and mix 1-2 tbls of borax in it until the borax wouldn't dissolve anymore. I kept it in a colored glass spray bottle by my side and when I felt them moving on me, I sprayed and it stopped. Don't know how many it killed but it gave me relief from them crawling around on me and biting.
What I learned is get your immune system up, that is the number one best defense against these mites. I let my health go down and was depressed and that opened the door for them to breed unchecked.
I did the laundry thing, washed sheets every night in hot water and borax, wore clothes once and washed in same. Not sure if this made a difference. I still only use sheets for 3 days and wash, I guess afraid they will come back. My 17 year old son never got them, I didn't let him use my towels and washed his clothes separately. kept blankets on couch and washed them often.
It is hell but you can overcome it. I was there thinking my life was ruined, not wanting to be around people. Oh and did the doctor thing too, they don't have a clue. It was awful but you can get thru this.
God Bless and be with you, Debbie

Hi About just over 2 years ago I started getting a crawling sensation all over my body and intense itching. Then my mum was complaining of the same. We googled symptoms and decided we had bird mites but all the syptoms didn't match, then we thought it was dog mange but apparently humans can't catch animal mange, then I decided it was scabies but no rash! Then we thought it was rat mites and then back to scabies. We went to countless drs who referred us onto skin specialist who decided we had a case of "dry skin" and the way we were treated by the gps was appalling! Anyway while this is going on we are trying home remedies: tea tree oil, apple cider vineger ( both bathing and drinking), alfalfa tea, lyclear, bleach baths (everyday), plastic covers on beds, bagging all clothes after one wear, steaming, pesticide from hardware store, clove oil, salt lamps, dehumidifiers, garlic tablet, vitamins, sulphur, sulphur soap all types of creams potions and lotions (and there were more) we were at our wits end and severely depressed just wanting to die.... seriously. I have now been mite free for about a month or so. Here's what finally worked: All our clothes were bagged after one wear and sheet s changed daily( we had been doing this anyway) but this is important. I quit sugar. No more sugar in my diet ( a little here and there but not too much! ) Then every single day I would put on benzamil application head to toe everyday or straight after showeringin hot water (cook em! ). Do this until they are gone. If they come back do it again. You will be free again. These parasites have cost me about $4000. I don't want anyone to have to go through that again. Until you've lived it you have no idea. I vowed if I ever cured these dirty critters I would post what worked for other sufferers. I wish you all freedom and peace.
Hi everyone, first of all I am so grateful of this website!
Thank you so much Ted for your advice and support! I have gathered so much valuable knowledge and insight. My rosacea is really bad right now, my face is extremely inflamed and my eyes are blood shot :( I can't sleep at night, my hair is dry and bleached from all the hydrogen peroxide and borax treatments. Please help!! (It's been 5 days since I started all the below treatments)
-I have been drinking borax and water daily. 1/8 borax to litre water. -Orally taking Vitamin C&D3& B12, Zinc, lysine, magnesium, flax oil and acia berry. -also went to Dr yesterday and he prescribed me antibiotic which I started yesterday monocyline - shower twice a day washing body with anti-dandruff shampoo twice, leaving on for 5 mins and rinsing then repeat. I'm using head and shoulders which contains pyrothese zinc (not sure if the spelling is right pyro..something) -washing face with borax and peroxide every morning and I have a spray bottle that I'm frequently spraying my body and hair with. - morning and night washing face with syslic acid (clean and clear) followed with zinc oxide cream 15% - twice a day drinking ACV and baking soda mixture (morning and night) - eating only fruit and veggies - 30 mins min of walking daily. - bagged all infested clothing and is in my storage for a month, then I will take out and wash everything with borax and tide. -I'm sleeping on an air mattress, changing sheets and pillow cases daily.
-Also only drinking 1 coffee per day. (No suger) I don't know what else to do, is this normal for this to be happening, blood shot eyes (I may have got a bit of lavender in them a few days ago) My face literally looks like I have been beat with a baseball bat.. Please help me, it's so embarrassing to even go to 'mart', everyone is gawking at me. any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
(Hope, Bc Canada)
I have cured myself of mites! I could NOT believe the sudden increase in the creepy crawling like sensation I felt just a few evenings ago. I have been feeling these mild sensations for a while now and never thought it was something abnormal. Who knew? That was until one night I was going to sleep and felt a surge of tingling all over my legs! It did not hurt nor keep me from sleeping because I was exhausted, but I knew that it wasn't normal. It felt like bugs where "peak-a-booing" in and out of my pores. I read everything I could about the sensation and determined it was mites!!
-I have had a rash on neck that just would not go away (in part because I wasn't following through when things were working). ACV burned because I was scratching, Sulfur mask - I slacked using it, tea tree with Vitamin E smell was annoying me All three got me result though. But Like I said I should've kept up with one regimen.
So this is what I did........
1. I woke up went to the store for new hepa filter and alcohol (90%), and apple cider vinegar, borax wasn't available nearby. I showered, sprayed myself everywhere with ACV and put on clean clothes fresh out the dryer.
2. I called a cleaning company to do the cleaning with me and cleaned everything in home from top to bottom (even the ceilings with a vacuum cleaner), while the workers wore janitor like suits. While they cleaned I put everything already clean in the dryer for 20 min. My dryer is incredibly hot. Drawer by drawer to make it easier to put back. Only my hands touched the clothes out of the dryer. The inside of the drawers were cleaned and sprayed with alcohol.
3. EVERYTHING was sprayed with 90% alcohol with a few drops of eucalyptus to cut the smell. Rugs, walls, mattresses, gym equipment, you name...it got sprayed. What couldn't be sprayed was wiped down and cleaned with HOT water, dried and then sprayed. Every removable fabric was washed in hot water then dried by high heat.
4. Feeling confident I killed them all I showered, sprayed myself with ACV and went to bed. To my horror I still felt the suckers on my legs but definitely not as much. I recall thinking why can't salt kill these buggers? So I got up and dissolved fine sea salt in water (more salt than water) & added ACV and poured it all over my body, air dried and went to bed with loose cloths on to keep the salt on my skin. I woke up feeling great. I still felt some peak-a-booing though.
I did another ACV salt solution, air dried and put on my clothes and went about my day. Still I felt them. I also felt like I stirred them up. Good cause I was was relentless.
I eliminated them from my environment. Really minimized them because we co-exist with them. :| I spray alcohol every where especially my bed, leaving bed unmade to air out.
5. Know to eradicate the nuisances off my skin. With skin lathered with sulfur soap I apricot scrubbed every square inch of me and pumiced my hand, feet and elbows. My goal is to starve them by not giving them any food, that is getting rid of dead skin as much as possible.
6. Twice a day: I pat-dried my skin and poured this mixture over my skin: 1 cup ACV, 1 cup dissolved (mostly) sea salt and 1/4 ground cloves. It is working. I used this mixture twice a day and clearly it is working. I do not feel that tingly peek-a-boo sensation. I just wear loose clothes to minimize sweat. (summer in NYC).
Now what seemed to happen is I forgot about my feet because I never felt them here. So I am guessing I drove them from one part of my body to another. SOLUTION... Ground cloves in my socks. Viola!!!!!!! As for the rash?? I use ground cloves in vaseline. I know that I killed these buggers burrowing in that rash because I felt it give me a spasm in a nerve on my neck! Yep, weird but the rash is dried up and does not itch at all. Leave the ground cloves and sea salt on your sheets while your gone for the day. Even sleep with as much as you can stand on and below your sheets. Sprinkle carpets with clovers and salt periodically and vacuum later.
This is my recipe and I am keeping up with it until long after its all gone. I have no idea how long their eggs take to hatch but I figured it is worth maintaining the regimen for a few weeks to get the entire life cycle. I also take ACV 3 times a day and am sprinkling clove in my lotion. Hahaha the buggers are going insane.
Good luck and thanks to all who shared their experiences. I learned a lot and came up with my recipe for killing mites.
Update January 25, 2016:
Original problem STILL GONE!!! No pee-a-booing. NOTHING present.
The heavy sea salt (above and below the sheets) and ground clove (above the sheets only) and sleeping with this for a few days really did the trick. It makes sense to me to sprinkle sea salt on the mattress and surrounding flooring/carpet. It "kills" bugs period. Sulfur shampoo as a lathery soap actually leave your skill feeling superiorly cleaned. I continue to use it, just not daily as of December 1, 2015. Ground clove as a body scrub is also nice a using sugar or sand for spa-ing types. I hope this helps someone else.
I also drink ACV as a daily tonic A shot in warm water taste like warm apple juice. Twice daily.
I have been dealing with mites of sorts. Constantly having creepy crawling feeling, when I would feel a bite or an itch, I would smack the area and always find a tiny little thing, almost like sand (sometimes larger, sometimes white brown or black) and thinking it was a coincidence. I started digging deeper once my daughter started getting bit and my husband even began to be itchy. Even when I was near my coworkers I noticed they started scratching incessantly!! Once I realized it was mites, I had a semi nervous breakdown and became angry.
Plan of action:
Washed everyone in my home (toddler, husband, 2 dogs) in T-Gel shampoo and washed all of our clothes in hot water and borax then sprayed everyone with pure white vinegar and peppermint oil
Then sprayed the outside of our house with ortho home max which worked wonders (a little scary but whatever works)
Put all of our clothes into garbage bags with the eucalyptus scent and lived out of those
Vacuumed everything! And mopped with vinegar and windex
Put cedarwood and eucalyptus incents everywhere!! And put those cedar moth replant things in all of our clothing drawers
After a day, I found nothing on me. Not one thing!!! I was so used to feeling around my skin and picking off litte pieces of sand and there was nothing!! No more creepy crawly feeling, no more anything. I also started taking sovereign silver twice a day. I still find mites around but they don't bite or bother any longer thank god. My husband just sprayed ortho home max inside today so I'm hoping that will get rid of the remaining mites. Try it! Can't hurt!!
A few new strategies Two weeks ago my bedroom was infested with "invisible bug" bird mites via an abandoned bird's nest that had been built in a potted cactus below my clothesline. I thought the bird's nest was cute and left it alone. Little did I know; actually, nothing did I know. My wake-up call came after I had been up reading on the internet most of the night. It was almost dawn and I lied down on my bed to try to get a few hours sleep. My torso was covered with a sheet, my legs sticking out. As I started to fall asleep, suddenly my legs were peppered with sharp stings, like sand grains blown by a hard wind or a shotgun shooting tiny shot. I looked and felt my legs but there was nothing to see or be felt. This continued intermittently and sleep was impossible, and remained impossible except for short naps in the daytime until three days ago. Talking to a friend in the US a little later in the morning I asked what sort of bugs were so tiny they were invisible; my friend suggested mites, and thus began my internet education on skin mites which led me to this thread on EarthClinic.a few days ago. Some things mentioned in posts here and on other threads inspired the two new ideas that have allowed me to sleep through the night the last three nights. Salty Sheets I saw mention of a homeopathic remedy called Natrum Muriaticum made from sea salt, and a couple of mentions of swimming in the ocean being helpful to decrease mite activity.
As I live close to the beach on an island in the southern Caribbean, I headed right down there and splashed around in the waves, while scrubbing my body with my hands. Sitting on a driftwood log to dry in the sun, I was inspired to rinse some clothes and sheets in the seawater, so I went back to my place and grabbed a bag of shirts, shorts, towels, and sheets, took them back to the beach, soaked them in seawater, wrung them out, and took them home to hang up on the clothesline. (I don't have a dryer). After they dried in the sun, I rewashed the towels but left the dried saltwater on the sheets, shorts, and shirts. I put the sheets on the inflatable mattress I am now sleeping on in the living room, steam ironed the shorts and shirts and started wearing them like that. The mite attacks decreased noticeably, and that night, sleeping on my salty sheets, I had the first decent night's sleep in two weeks. I just woke up from the third nights restful sleep, without a single bite, sleeping with the same sheets that haven't been laundered. So, we know that these critters don't like salt or borax, but though we have been washing our clothes and linens with borax, we have been rinsing it out. I'm suggesting that if the borax (and/or salt) are left in the fabric, that will prevent the mites from making a home or laying eggs in the fabric. With a top-loading washer, borax and salt be added to the final rinse so they saturate the fabric, then the fabrics can be put in the dryer and worn or used on the bed. With a front-loader that probably won't work, so the fabrics would have to be dipped in a bucket of borax and salty water, wrung out and then dried, but that would be well worth the effort if one can put on their clothes and slide between the bedsheets without getting attacked, because their clothes and linens no longer provided a safe haven for the bugs. Tobacco juice Tobacco is a powerful pesticide. I was reminded of this by a mention here and on another site that if tobacco leaves are put into a bird cage the mites will leave the birds alone. Following up on that, I made some strong tobacco tea, strained it into a spray bottle, and started spraying it on any spot that I felt a bite, or itching, or crawling. It worked marvelously, stopped the critters or the itching immediately. That is the second part of my salty sheets strategy, to spend the last hour or so before I go to bed spraying every itch with tobacco tea and rubbing it in. I made the tea by putting a good handful of coarsely chopped tobacco leaves into a pint mayonnaise jar and filling it with boiling water, then shaking it regularly while it cooled down a bit. Any form of tobacco would work; a handful of pipe or cigarette tobacco, or the tobacco from a pack of cigs taken out of the tubes and put in a jar. This is truly the best thing I have tried for stopping the biting and itching. This post is already pretty long. I will continue it with my ideas for alkalizing the body and actually killing bird mites in a later post.
I've found instant relief and kill these mites once and for all. This is my regemin 1st thing in the morning I run a bath with 1/2 cup borax hottest you can stand it make lots of bubbles and stand in the tub rub the bubbles in to you skin ears nostrils hair everywhere. Wait about 3 minutes then submerge yourself under the water slowing hold your nose and just let your lips out to breath, stay under for about 10 minutes, then go under and shake your head face down, vigorously hold your nose of course you will see these black mites flothing.Get soap with antibaterial in it lather your whole body rinse standing in the tub with fresh hot water, I then get dandruff shampoo and lather my hair vigorously and apply the lather all over my body. I sermerge again shake hair under water side to side face down. I then apply conditioner with salt I add 2 tablespoons to mine, I leave it on for a good 10 mins. I then stand in the tub and use a cup to rinse everything off, as the tub is draining. I pat dry myself and apply coconut oil everywhere. I make a paste of triple antiboctic ointment and foot powder for my face, the cheap kind at dollar stores it's got to have salicylic acid, in it I pay 2 dollars for mine. It's need to look like lard thick I usually put the triple ointment 1st then the powder heavy thick enough pat it in so it don't fall off and drys leave on as long as you can, I rinse off after a hour are so, and again at night I leave on all night, I put vaseline only in my ears and nostrils at night and neck and body but face triple powder for short.. I also take Muti vitamin and extra vitamin c and D also, Candida support and probiotic. After 3 days of doing this the ringing in my ears stopped the sores healed and the mites are almost gone there is one place over my eye brow that about a size of a pea that was as big as a quarter it's working and I'm going to be doing this for another day are so, Itried everything under the sun and for 3 months my husband has seen a phyco spending money on everything, then one day I tried this instant relief and death to the enemy that almost ruin my life. I also stayed away for sweets and breads but with Candida support I can eat bread but not swhat's. I know what everyone here is battling and feeling, Ive also cried and asked why, but remember don't ever give up. I almost did, 3 months of this I was going insane until I did this concoction and whalaa I feel normal again and my skin is actually better Ohh almost forgot each time you do this and rinse with warm water and apply coconut oil if you don't have coconut oil use vasaline are just the triple antiboctic ointment. Triple Powder Power to the People..I hope this helps all that gives it a try...Please if I can help, I'm here.Gods Speed..
