Treatment of demodicosis with folk remedies
Demodectic mange is a common ailment that affects the skin of the face, ears, and especially the eyelids. A microscopic mite called the acne gland loves to settle along the eyelash line, in the humid environment of the conjunctiva. A sick person notes redness, swelling of the eyelids, a feeling of constant eye fatigue, photophobia. Small scales are visible on the eyelashes, the eyelids itch, and all the time it feels like sand has been poured into my eyes.

How to recover from demodicosis
It is difficult to get rid of demodicosis, but some people know many recipes for alternative treatment of demodicosis, and here is one of them.
You will need a tincture of calendula, which is sold in a pharmacy, and Demalan ointment. When you wake up, wash your face and pat dry with a towel to keep your face moist.

Combine these two ingredients in an enamel bowl and add two tablespoons of birch tar. At the same time, take one and a half tablespoons of lard, which has already melted, and three grams of crushed sulfur. Dishes with this composition must be put on low heat and wait until the mixture boils, then boil for another three minutes. Pour the composition into a jar and wait for the ointment to harden.
Use this ointment every day, lubricating your face with it at night. In the morning, wash off the ointment with warm water and baby soap. Do such procedures every day for three months, and you will definitely recover.

Take six cloves of garlic and chop it to the consistency of sour cream, pour half a teaspoon of sunflower oil over it and mix everything.

Keep this compress for half an hour, and then remove and wash the skin with warm water using tar soap. Dry your skin with a towel.
In conclusion, we want to say that folk remedies against demodicosis, although effective, should not be used without consulting a dermatologist. Actually, the diagnosis of demodicosis is made in the laboratory based on the study of skin scrapings or analysis of eyelashes. The doctor should prescribe treatment and clarify whether the folk recipes you have chosen are suitable as an auxiliary therapy.
