I am 62 and suffered from what I am now pretty sure is demodex mites for a year and half. I stayed a few days at a place where the cleanliness of bedding was sketchy, and also got too much sun at the same time. I got a bit of redness on one cheek and my nose had little red bumps. I have used rubbing alcohol on my face to bring the mites to surface and then put tea tree oil on to kill them. I realized my hot water in the house I was renting was not set high enough. It was 120 and it should be over 130 I believe from what I have read. Before the Landlord adjusted it I used eucalyptus in my laundry for sheets and towels as that kills dust mites and maybe all mites. I used a few drops of eucalptus mixed in water and added to wash. I also used 1 cup or so of white vinegar in rinse cycles. This killed germs and freshened things and softened the sheets and towels. I used niacinamide on my skin and my skin seems really much better in just a few weeks. I have been using a silk pillowcase for a few months too and that was helping some. Mites don t like silk. So hot water and eucalyptus are my recommendations. I do mop the house with vinegar, and vacuum our rugs and use borax on them.
