Causes of Rosacea

Demodex Rosacea | Ungex

In this post we will speak about one of the most widespread skin diseases, rosacea. If you don’t know that much about rosacea you can take a look at our rosacea page here.

Here we will talk about the causes of rosacea, the relationship of rosacea with Demodex mites and how Ungex can help sufferers of rosacea get rid of this annoying issue.


What is Rosacea? 

Facial redness that doesn’t go away? Inexplicable bumps and pimples? Irritated eyes? All are signs of rosacea, a potentially serious disorder, that can now be diagnosed with more precision than ever before. April has been designated as Rosacea Awareness Month to educate the public on this often life-disruptive condition now affecting more than 16 million Americans – and most of them don’t know it.


What are Causes of Rosacea?

Demodex mites and microbes can be the most important cause of rosacea. Here we will discuss more about these issues.

  • Demodex Mites 

Microscopic Demodex mites are a natural part of the human microbiome — the ecological community of microorganisms that live within and on the body. Two species of Demodex are found in humans. Demodex folliculorum and Demodex brevis. According to their species they live in hair follicles, on the face, in the meibomian glands of the eyelids and in the sebaceous glands of the skin.

Demodex folliculorum Ungex

While Demodex folliculorum are found on the skin of all humans, they frequently occur in greater numbers in those with rosacea. There has been much debate as to whether their increased numbers are a cause or result of rosacea.

Evidence appears to be mounting that an overabundance of Demodex may possibly trigger an immune response in people with rosacea, or that the inflammation may be caused by certain bacteria associated with the mites.

According to research by Dr. Martin Schaller at Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich:

a severe infestation of Demodex mites, known as demodicosis, may mimic the symptoms of rosacea but fail to respond to traditional rosacea therapy.


Dr. Fabienne Forton, a dermatologist in Brussels, suggested both an indirect and a direct role for the mites themselves in the development of the disorder.


How can Demodex rosacea be treated?

Ungex is a revolutionary company that help people who are suffering from a high density of Demodex mites. Over the years, the greatest section of Ungex customers were people who have rosacea issues.

  • Bacteria

In addition, Demodex folliculorum’s true connection to rosacea may be linked to a distinct bacterium associated with the mites, called Bacillus oleronius.

The investigators also noted that the bacteria’s potential role is supported by the fact that effective treatment for rosacea includes antibiotics that destroy B. oleronius, while antibiotics that are not harmful to these bacteria generally are not effective in the management of rosacea.
