The subject line says it all — help! How on earth do I treat it there? Do I put the ivermectin cream in my hair?
Background info: I’m about 3 weeks into treatment with ivermectin cream (you guys call it soolantra). I just went through another wave off die-off and my face is looking terrible again (after significant improvement the past couple weeks). However, with this outbreak, the lesions are showing up in spots that weren’t affected before — like my head! What the heck is happening?
Ok, here’s my guess — does it sound right? When I started the cream, some of the demodex didn’t die, it moved outside of the area I was treating (i.e. from my face to my scalp) and continued to live there? Now, 3 weeks later, they’re dying their normal lifecycle death and causing lesions? Cause if that’s the case, they’ve already laid eggs there and there will be ANOTHER die off in that area and I’m still SO far from being rid of this
