Demodex Hair Mite Infestation on Humans

Demodex hair mite

So, What’s It All About? Let’s start by saying that having a few Demodex mites present on your skin doesn’t necessarily sentence you to a life full of unexplained itching, hair loss, acne, or any of the symptoms they cause per se. However, these few mites can multiply quickly to make a high population density that leads to the Demodex Hair Mite Infestation on Humans!

What Does ‘High Population Density’ Actually Mean?

High population density means: the mites have reproduced at an increased rate that the resources their hosts (that’s you!) provide, such as food and shelter, become strained to provide for these little parasite’s needs. This is when hosts start seeing symptoms of mite activity, which manifests as skin or hair irritations.

Why is My Hair Mite Population Out of Control?

Many of our clients who have respond adversely to mites, suffer things like high-stress levels, or other medical conditions that affect their immune system. Demodex population density can soar very quickly when the immune system is unable to respond sufficiently to keep the mite population in check.

What Harm Does a High Population Density Cause?

These tiny parasites feed on hormones, oils, and fluids around the hair follicles that are assumed to be necessary nutrients for your hair and skin health.

A single hair follicle can support a family of 25 or more Demodex mites! No matter how microscopic they are, I’m sure you can imagine the impact they could make on one follicle alone. Now, how many follicles do you have on your whole body?

What Is the Best Way to Avoid and Treat Demodex Hair Mite Infestation on Humans?

If you have done some research around the Internet, I’m sure you have found all manner of home remedies such as dousing yourself in tea tree oil and some other extreme measures. Now let me tell you why in the long run, these solutions will only give limited results:

Because of the nature of where Demodex lives (deep under the skin), treatment needs to be ongoing to ensure you target all generations of mites; this may take a few months with daily care. Things like Tea tree oil are unsuitable for regular long-term use and are too harsh for permanent use on the skin.

Demodex mites live under the skin for most of their lives. Thus getting rid of them can be a lengthy but necessary process. Ungex’s mission is to help reduce these problems with zero side effects and a formula gentle enough for everyday use.
