I am coming up to 8 months of having whatever mites these actually are and so far I have seen the best results on day one of using a steam room. They feel slimy and I can feel them crawling All over. Also sometimes gliding-flying to other part of my body. I believe I have demodex or bird mites but not sure. Almost been to every hospital here in town and a few quick cares but even told to lay off the drugs, been thrown on a legal hold for psych evaluation, and now driving me so insane I'm about to punch someone. What I've noticed is they live on me - nobody else will see them. They like the corner of my eyes and cheeks the best but I am so infested now that they are all over me. They like select people because I'm the only one here that's bothered by them. They don't like to be dirty either, so baby powder or clay dirt helps get some off me. Vegetable or olive oil, Dawn soap, or dry cleaners like oxi-clean makes it hard for them to move. Tea tree oil helps get rid of them. Next steam room visit I am going to bring some oil, Dawn soap or baby shampoo lotion to help get them off me.

75 degree hot sauna appeared to kill the mites on my skin.
