Demodicosis is often confused with other skin conditions and therefore frequently left undiagnosed and not properly treated. This is a problem since the deteriorating skin condition can lead to the formation of large bacterial infections and other chronic skin diseases.
Problems with existing treatments.
Often the typical model of treatment for demodex does not differ in principle from the treatment of other skin diseases. This includes anti-itching preparations, tetracycline antibiotics, corticosteroids and immunosuppressant which may have serious consequences to the patient. This complex treatment can cause the reduction of skin immunity, increase the scale of the problem and expose the patient to additional complications. The long-term use of steroid preparations can also lead to the creation of after-steroid-dermatitis, which is very serious skin condition and requires extensive treatment. In addition, oral antibiotics are ineffective in eliminating the mites – since demodex is not a bacterium, and is therefore resistant to their effects. For positive treatment results Metronidazol may be applied to help to fight the additional bacterial infections caused by demodex. The combination of methods may have a beneficial effect on the condition of the skin.
The treatment of demodicosis is not a quick process. This is largely due to the demodex development cycle, which lasts from 18 to 25 days. The duration of treatment should be long enough to treat all stages of demodex development,in order to prevent the re-colonization of the skin. The systematic use of appropriate formulations is important to the treatment.

Steroid dermatitis – before, during and after treatment
There are a number of chemical compounds (including sulphur and mercury) which are poisonous to demodex and used to treat demodicosis. Preparations containing sulphur oxides are much safer than those containing mercury, since they are not so strongly concentrated and toxic to the skin. Alternative treatments that support the treatment include tea tree oil, peppermint, and specially selected herb blends.
The European market for alternative treatments is minimal in comparison to the Asian one. China in particular has a wide range of products available to those affected by demodex. A leading product within this market is the highly effective XFML cream (Creme Fumanling Xin). The product is the result of decades worth of study by the internationally renowned Chinese physician and scientist Dr. Qu Kui Zun. XFML cream has been awarded the GMP international quality certificate and it is the winner of many prestigious awards, for example, the 14th Annual Salon International Invention Award in Geneva. XFML cream is protected by patent. It is uniquely effective in the treatment of skin lesions caused by demodex.
Other medicinal cosmetics available on our website are an effective addition to the XFML cream therapy. These products have had great success in China, and are becoming more popular in other countries around the world. Now, thanks to our website and online store they are being made available in Europe.
During therapy the consumption of alcohol, greasy, fatty and spicy food should be discontinued. This has a very significant impact on skin condition and the course of treatment.
It is crucial to control the risk factors which can contribute to further outbreaks of demodicosis. Those who have recently completed treatment or those who suffer from immune system deficiency disease should be sure to maintain high levels of personal hygiene. Lack of good hygiene increases the risk of recurrence of the condition. Particular attention should be paid to personal hygiene items, which should be kept in a clean place and should not come into contact with other people’s items. Common makeup, hair brushes, epilation appliances should be avoided. Please be aware that in places such as beauty salons and solariums you may be exposed to bacteria or mites.
