Dear Ted, i have read that Borax can produce ill side effects in humans. This concerns me greatly, as i would like to try the h202/borax treatment on my skin (scalp & face)as i suspect demodex mite infestation.This is a bit of the article, could you please advise?
"Drawbacks: The chemical borax is abrasive, and 20 Mule Team Borax may abrade your carpets. In addition, there are documented cases of long-term low-level exposure to sodium polyborate resulting in conjunctivitis, weight loss, vomiting, mild diarrhea, skin rash, convulsions and anemia and other similar allergic reactions in humans. If you're using borax as flea control, and your pets (or family) are showing loss of appetite, eye or skin problems, anemia or kidney problems, you may want to switch to another flea control method and see if their health improves. Do not apply it to damp carpets as it can take the color out.
