    @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.

    After reading this I popped 500mgs of niacinamide had 2 cups of coffee and took 81 mgs of aspirin and I must say I feel really positive about life at the moment so I might stick with this routine until I run out.

    I too would cough with last year's newly added succinic acid. This latest batch with identical ingredients doesn't cause me to cough. I wonder if anything else has changed.

    Nothing has changed since last year. Maybe you adapted to it and it does not irritate any more? That's what happened to me at least.
