Complete cure (for acne/rosacea) by means of patent medicine
Zhong Zhou (ZZ) ointment is mainly used to treat dermatitis namely acne and rosacea (red nose) that are caused by a kind of parasite called demodex. ZZ ointment can be used as a skin lotion with an additional effect in reducing inflammation on skin and is able to kill demodex and other germs. Therefore, the skin of patient will become smoother and healthier after having been cured. A bottle of 20 gram ointment which can be used for a period of 30 to 35 days is able to eliminate the symptom (acne and/or red nose) significantly in general cases. Sometimes, the symptom can even be removed completely.
Re-generation of demodex has to go through the mating process between male and female adults. The life cycle of demodex from ovum (egg) to adult usually takes bout 15 to 20 days. When adult demodex wants to mate with other ones, it has to go out from sebaceous glands to the skin surface. At that time, adult demodex would make contact to ZZ ointment that will kill them effectively. As demodex ova laid deep under dermis are shielded by a thin film, ZZ ointment cannot reach and kill them. Because of this reason, ZZ ointment must be continuously applied until all ova become adults. These adult demodex will die when they touch ZZ ointment in the mating process.
A bottle of ZZ ointment is able to kill most of the demodex and can get rid of the symptom (acne and/or red nose), but the treatment may not finish yet. For example, If there is small portion of demodex left over under the skin and the application of ZZ ointment is stopped, then re-generation of demodex will proceed repeatedly and the symptom will occur again. The treatment for complete curing two different kinds of demodex is not the same. To tackle demodex folliculorum (long demodex), three bottles (20g) of ZZ ointment are required and the duration of treatment is about 60-80 days. To tackle demodex brevis (short demodex), 6 bottles are required and the duration is about 90-180 days. If a patient who is cured does not want to have a demodex test, he/she should continue to apply ZZ ointment one or two more bottles. This will ensure that the acne and/or red nose will not appear again.
Furthermore, the spouse of patient usually has a high possibility to get infected with no symptom, he/she should use ZZ ointment once every evening while the patient is under treatment. If both patient (with symptom) and his/her spouse (with no symptom) use ZZ ointment daily at the same time, the effectiveness of the treatment will be enhanced. Users are reminded that there may be some reactions occurred after ten days of treatment. For instance, the symptom is getting a little bit worse; more red spots and rash may appear; the affected area of skin may become slightly tense, itchy and crumby. There is no need to worry because these reactions will diminish within two weeks. In fact, these reactions show that the killing of demodex is undergoing very well and generation of new skin is accelerating. This makes the skin become smoother and healthier. ZZ ointment does not consist of any lead, benzene, mercury, hormone and other harmful materials, hence long-term application of ZZ ointment will not cause any side effect to users. In addition, healthy people who are demodex carrier without the appearance of acne/red nose can also use ZZ ointment for prevention purpose. During the course of treatment, users should follow the directions based on medical theory.
