DMSO kills demodex mites

Post  Reseeding on Wed Mar 16, 2016 9:59 pm

I don't think this has been posted. I was researching DMSO the other night and came across this article. It seems to be from 2006-07?

I've read some posts and theories about demodex mites causing hairloss.
In case Tea tree oil isn't working for ya. You know DMSO will get those little suckers!

-- Quote ---Experimental observation on the in vitro killing effect of Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) on human mite Demodex and its mechanism of action
ZHAO Ya-e, GUO Na, ZHANG Ling-xiao(Department of Immunology and Pathogenic Biology, Medical School of Xi'an Jiao tong University, Xi'an 710061, China)

To investigate the in vitro killing effect of Dimethyl sufoxide (DMSO) on human mite Demodex and it mechanism of action, mites were collected with adhesive cellophane tape technique, the classical microscopic counting method was used to determine the killing effect of DMSO on mites and the dynamic observations were pictured with Motic Image DM software. It was demonstrated that significant difference in the in vitro killing effect of DMSO existed between the DMSO-treated group and the control group (P0.05). The killing effect positively correlated with concentration of drug and time of action., and the lowest effective concentration of DMSO to express its killing effect was 40%. Additionally, DMSO showed a better killing activity than 10% or 5% Lac sulfur (P0.05). After treatment with DMSO, mites were contracted and twisted with accelerated activity for a certain period of time, then their activities gradually slow down with the body turned to be transparent and finally they die. In conclusion, it is clear that DMSO has a powerful killing effect on human mite Demodex in vitro, whose mechanism of action might be due to the combined actions of contact killing, neuromuscular toxic action and deprivation of body fluids.
