What Demodex mites look like under the microscope.

One of the most common questions we get at Ungex is ‘What do Demodex mites look like?’. Because of their microscopic size, it is often frustrating for people that they can’t get a look at what is causing their skin problems or show their medical professionals for validation.
A high population density of Demodex mites in humans has been linked to all manner of hair and skin problems.
These symptoms indicate that a high population density of Demodex mites are present and need to be treated effectively.
A high population of Demodex mites means that your body simply has too many parasites to house and your body may or may not be showing signs or symptoms of their habitation. Everyone’s body reacts differently which can result in a wide variety of symptoms such as rosacea, acne, blepharitis, itching, hair loss, and more.
Ungex provides microscopic tests in our headquarters in Melbourne, Australia (as seen in the above video), as well as several other key locations. However, it is not necessary to undergo a test to diagnose Demodex mites, as their symptoms speak louder than any test.
We have perfected our method of picking up Demodex mites under the microscope, as testing is not always accurate because Demodex mites spend most of their time tucked up and out of reach under the skin. This is the reason symptoms are a more reliable diagnosis.
For this reason, if you can’t come and get a test directly, you can take this useful quiz to help give you an idea of your Demodex mite population density based on questions about symptoms, skin type, lifestyle, and history.
It’s never too late to get rid of Demodex mites from living under your skin. From a low population density to a severe one, or from no symptoms to quite severe issues, Ungex will get you there.
