Dear JO of Springville, UT, USA, thank you for your advice on using dog shampoo and witch hazel. I will try that for sure. I too have the same problems with demodex mites as you do and I have been searching for a cure. I have been using acne products that contain salicylic acid and that helps but it doesn't get rid of them completely. You can see mites if you buy a magnifying mirror that's magnifies at least 10 times depending on your eyesight you might need one that magnifies more. I also read that we should use oil-free cream because we would actually feed the mites with the oils we put on our skin. I use acne night creams that are oil-free and they are good for me even though I have dry skin. I live in Germany so please excuse any mistakes in my writing. If you find a cure please share! Thank you!
