Any word on tea tree oil used for demodex? i was reading lately that tea tree oil can be very effective way to treat demodex mites on humans as well as on pets. I just finish using ivermectin and was very displeased with the results of almost three month of treatmets. I think the problem with products like ivermectin is that chemical substances show the signs of improvement but after a wile demodex mites take over and such products don’t help any more with demodex.
So, my question is – do i get my owm tea tree oil, find a way how to apply it so demodex will be eliminated or i should look for ant demodex products with tea tree oil in it and treat demicosis this way?
Did anyone tried Cortizone 10 for acne? i had found some information on side effects this product has and wanted to know if whoever tried cortizone had side effects or not?
I have lots of zits on my forehead and just don’t want to take my chances and use something that can make it even worse. Bad enough ive tried just few weeks ago “new and improved” Proactive and it gave me so much problems. My skin is still red after ive used Proactive for only a week.
So, if anyone used Cortizone 10 for acne, please share your thoughts and let me know if it did help in any way to cleap up your skin from acne.
Sarcoptic, demodectic mange is a skin condition impacting dogs with suppressed immune system. These tiny mites strike the dogs skin. Red and sarcoptic mange multiply within the hair roots of the affected dog. Demodex can be found on the skin and hair of most dogs. If these mites stay in modest numbers, they are unable to cause any problems, given that the immune system is performing effectively.
Dog mange are invisible to the human eye and can be uncovered only under the microscope.
Research indicates that specific breeds of dogs are at risk of this skin illness.
Sarcopic mange in dogs has two forms: localized or generalized mange. Both forms need treatment. If left without efficient therapy, sarcoptic mange won’t quit thriving and producing additional skin issues to your dog.
The localized form of mange affects specific body parts: face, ear and feet. This demodex can be diagnosed in puppies with underdeveloped immune system . It occurs when there is increase of mites which can not be stopped by a poor immune system.
As soon as you notice first signs of demodex mange: isolated and irritating hairless patches, you need to start helping your dog to bring these mites under control by applying topical medications. You might consider other options which can help to restore the defective immune system of your dog. The localized demodex mange is not as difficult to treat as generalized form. Regular use of anti mange shampoo following with application of demodex care creams and/or ointments along with healthy diet should help your dog to get rid of the mites fairly fast. The generalized form of sarcoptic mange is a severe form, it affects whole body. This type of dig’s demodicosis needs much more aggressive treatment.
Luckily, almost 90% of demodectic mange are localized, affecting small parts of dogs body. There are few anti sarcoptic treatments available. While choosing the therapy for your dog, you must remember about the main cause of this skin illness. The suppressed immune system is the main reason why your dog has demodicosis (increased number of demodex mange). Widely used Amitraz dips, Benzoyl peroxide and other similar medicine are harsh chemicals. Unfortunately, it takes time to bring the number of mites under control. The whole point of treatment is to restore the immune system. If you can not help your dog to have back strong immune system then the whole treatment is useless. The antibiotics and chemicals, if used for long time, have negative side effects – it weakens immune system. If you choose these products, as powerful as it might be, this medicine should only be used for short time as preventative measure, to stop the infection.
