  1. i should add one thin, check with your doctor first to make sure that it is demodex mites you have in the eyebrows, insist to have him test the eyebrows and eyelashes (most likely, if you have mites in eyebrows, the eyelashes are infected too) for demodex because i din't. It took almost six month of treating blefaritis with all kinda stuff, until demodex got so bad that you could almost see it crawling. Had he checked me for demodex the first time i saw him, i wouldn't have to go through all the blepharitis treatments he prescribed.

  2. no, blepharitis is different from eye demodex. if you have mite in or around the eyes, the crawling feeling under the skin especialy at night will tell you that you have demodex and not blepharitis.
