What is Rosacea?

Facial redness that doesn’t go away? Inexplicable bumps and pimples? Irritated eyes? These are all are signs and symptoms of rosacea, a potentially serious disorder, that can now be diagnosed with more precision than ever before. Its good to know that the month of April has been designated to the awareness of this disease to educate the public on this often life-disruptive condition now affecting more than 16 million Americans while most of them don’t even know about it.

What are the Causes of Rosacea?

Demodex mites and microbes can be the most important rosacea causes among others. 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 our body. Two species of these mites 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.

While Demodex folliculorum is found on the skin of all humans, they are mostly seen in greater numbers in those with rosacea. There has been much debate about the relationship between their population and rosacea.

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

According to a 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 in the development of this disorder.

  • 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 researchers also noted that the bacteria’s potential role is supported by the fact that an effective treatment for rosacea includes antibiotics which destroy B. oleronius, while antibiotics that are not harmful to this bacteria generally are not an effective treatment.
