Thank you so much for this information! I've been trying everything I know to do...and my problem has not been responding like a bacteria or fungus would...and it's been so baffling. The idea that it might be mites sounded very plausible, and after doing some research and reading about them just now, I'm almost positive that's what has been going on. I just went to the dermidexsolutions site and order some of the shampoo and some of the soap. THANK YOU!!!!!
