My skin colring is looking better but I have breakouts on my jawline and neck area too. That is why I am also positive that it is mites. Disgusting, huh? I think these mites die off in cycles (10 days) and then you get the massive breakouts and then it clears up. Do you get a headache sometimes when you let the ponds stay on your skin? I cleanse it and then put the ponds on and I don't wash it off unitl the next day. My neck looks really icky right now. One thing I do is take Organic Sulfur internally to kill them from the inside out, too. It cleared up my hyperpigmentation in 5 months. It's crazy! I use sulfur soap on my skin but only once a week because it is so drying. I read about the staph infection. Sorry about that! I hope you are doing better now. Let's keep each other posted and get rid of this together! I'll let you know anything new I come up with and you let me know the same!!
