Thank you for your explanation. I have always felt that the cause of abnormal exfoliation and the cause of hyperkeratinization can vary from one person to the other. I think this may be true because different remedies help different people. Oil pulling helped me very much -- it reduced my KP by about 90% -- but it doesn't help everyone. So whatever oil pulling does -- remove oral bacteria and provide sublingual nutirents such as omega oils -- is what I needed, but not what everyone else needs for a KP cure. From this, I would conclude that I was either deficient in omega oils and/or had an overload or oral bacteria. (Oil pulling, by reducing oral bacteria, reduces bacteria absorbed in the mouth and carried throughout the body.)
Getting demodex mites under control has also proved to be a KP remedy for some, but not for everyone. Therefore, we can conclude that demodex mites are one of many KP causes and demodex has its specific cure/remedy.
This means that finding "one" cure may not be possible. There may be many.
We encourage our readers here to try different remedies until they find one that helps them, and to try that remedy for at least 30 days to see if it is going to make a difference.
