    @haidut,

    I have purchased a couple of bottles of SolBan and my first impressions are very positive. If you haven't already done so, could you explain the difference between aspirin and salicylic acid? I see aspirin listed as an ingredient in the first post but salicylic acid listed as the ingredient on the bottle itself. Is it the case that salicylic acid is the active ingredient in aspirin?

    I will change the main thread, thanks for pointing it out. Aspirin is just acetyl-salicylic acid and when applied to skin or ingested it quickly breaks down into acetic and salicylic acid. It is the salicylic acid that is the active ingredient if aspirin, at least as far as increasing metabolism and hair health goes.

    Fyi, for the theory of Demodex mites overinfestation playing a role in rosacea, ethanol kills them.

    Thanks. Were these mites a discussion somewhere earlier in the thread? Was SolBan suggested as a remedy?

    No, I came across the mite issue separately. More conventional treatment ideas like tea tree oil seem toxic, and I wondered about ethanol.
