At our four weeks follow-up, Ellie Mae was a lot better. This picture is a re-run from that last visit. Today, at 7 weeks of treatment, she looks almost normal from a distance. Her skin isn't lumpy-bumpy anymore. It's obvious that her new hair is shorter than her old hair, but that's not a problem. She's feeling a lot better, too.
You can see a big difference here in the top view. What you can't see is that there are still quite a few patches where the hair is thin. Still, even in those patches, I had to do three different skin scrapings before I found one single adult mite. Contrast that with her first visit where a single scraping produced a multitude of mites in all life stages.
Our end-point will be a combination of normal-looking skin and no mites detected, plus two more weeks of treatment. I think we're getting there.
