Are you tired of dealing with Demodex mites on your skin and the symptoms that come with them? Starting treatment for Demodex mites can get a bit finicky and confusing; there are thousands of answers and opinions online that add more to our confusion about how and what to do – this is where we come in to help, but let’s firstly revise on what we know about Demodex mites.
What are Demodex Mites?
Demodex mites are a group of hair follicles and sebaceous glands mite species. The species of these mites found on humans are arguably the animals with which we have the most intimate interactions.
We see why Demodex is overlooked and misunderstood. Those of us who know what they are and those of the other 95% in healing skin, scalp or hair have no idea what the Demodex mite is, or what it is capable of doing to skin and hair and other potential health risks for that matter.
This misunderstanding stems from the fact that all mammals, including us, are the hosts of these microscopic mites. But although all of them are belonging to the Demodex family, they have different characteristics. Each Demodex spices chooses a different part of the body to settle or prefer one mammal over another.
What Damages Can Demodex Folliculorum Do?
Our observations at Ungex, show Demodex mites play an essential role in inadequate retention of the newly transplanted grafts.
This issue is so important that I – as one of the Ungex consultants – recommend that the diagnosis of Demodex must be made as a preliminary assessment for these patients. Reduce mast cell inflammation is an essential step in checking hair loss and recovery. For newly grown hair retention, it is necessary to maintain the pH of the skin – which is alkaline – in its narrow range. In contrast, the toxins produced by Demodex Mite upset this balance of acidity and lead to new hair loss.
Demodex feeds on the epithelial cells of the skin and sebaceous glands. Also, the oil produced by the oil glands to preserve the skin is the best food of the mite. These tiny insects can block the duct of Philo-sebaceous units and cause epithelial cells to proliferate. The enzymes produced by Demodex can damage the cell wall of the sebaceous glands and follicles, thereby triggering immune reactions. Their corpses remain inside the pores of the skin, and the bacteria released from it cause skin contamination.
What are Demodex Treatments?
If the density of Demodex mite in humans remains low and under control, it is unlikely to cause a problem. The following tips will help you prevent the overpopulation of these mites, or if you already have Demodex infection, these can be used as home Demodex treatment.
- Avoid oil-based cleansers and greasy makeup
- Take showers at night
- Avoid overusing cleansers like shampoos, face and body soaps
- Practice healthy habits to improve and maintain your immune system.
Another almost home Demodex treatment is to use tea tree oil. The anti-Demodex effects of this oil have been proven. But is Tea Tree oil enough to eliminate Demodex mites?
The answer to this question is still controversial. Although many sites tell you that the best Demodex treatment is to use tea tree oil, it is not the most effective product to use if you want to get all of their population down to the normal stage.
The Demodex treatment takes a minimum of 3-months to get maximum results, and overusing tree oil for that long period can do more damage than good. Applying pure tea tree oil is too harsh and will dry out your skin over time, so it is best to avoid it when dealing with Demodex infestation.
