Hi

I know this has been done to death but I have started a program to treat the potential that I have a mite epidemic.

I am using a Tea Tree Oil soap that I lather up and leave on my body for a few mins during my shower followed by applying coconut oil after I finish.

This is the end of my first week, my KP is pretty red, I have broken out into spots or red dots in places like my forehead, back of neck etc. The other thing that is strange is that the end of my finger nails have gone yellow as well which is a sign of a fungus infection.

I understand that it is a 6 week minimum period to kill mites from the body based on their time to live and also the eggs that are laid and the general cycle and that during this time a build up of dead bodies in the the pores is to be expected..

When people have gone through the process that I have, what type of symptons did you have and did the end results take longer than 6 weeks? Did you shower twice a day or once and do you think coconut oil helps with the process?

I know what the benefits of coconut oil are in general to the body but I find it a bit hard work as it takes some time to sink into my skin.

Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
