Did you know this fact that “you are not alone”? Yes, that’s true! Your body is a gathering of microbes, fungi, viruses, and even other animals. Also, you aren’t the only one using your face. Right now, there are at least two species of microscopic face mites living in your pores.
“Demodex folliculorum” and “Demodex brevis” are two species of face mites that spend their entire lives in your hair follicles and subcutaneous glands and are less likely to come to the surface. Also, their sizes are very small. These reasons together make you not see these mites.
Under normal circumstances, the host does not notice the presence of these face mites. But when their population grows too large, they develop clinical manifestations on the skin and hair like rosacea, acne, blepharitis, hair loss, dandruff, hair thinning, and other types of skin and hair issues.
The main food for facial mites is sebum. To protect yourself, your skin produces a type of oil called sebum. Sebum is spread on the skin and along the hair and prevents them from drying out.
The main food for face mites is “sebum”. Your skin synthesizes a kind of oil called sebum to protect itself. Sebum spreads on the skin and throughout the hair and prevents them from drying out.
That’s why the oiliest parts of your face act as a better shelter for these mites more than other areas.
Let’s review some facts about these face mites:
1. Most People Have Face Mites!
One of the most exciting discoveries is that these mites are living on almost all adults (even you!). It is interesting to know face mites increase with age. Accordingly, they are very rare in childhood and more common in old ages.
2. Face Mites Species That Aren’t Closely Related to Each Other
There are many secrets about facial mites. One of the most exciting is how and when these parasites started their lives on the human body. Perhaps their evolution coincided with that of the human species and is an example of a co-evolution system.
The fact is that the two types of face mites, Demodex folliculorum and Demodex brevis, are not very close relatives to each other at all. The analyses show that D. Brevis is more closely related to dog mites than to D. folliculorum.
This is very noteworthy because each of these mites may have been transmitted to our body in a completely different story. There is no evidence that Demodex brevis was transmitted from dog to human. But given that dogs have always had a close relationship with humans, this is not out of the question.
3. Mites Can Talk About the Historical Divergence of Human Populations
The issue that how face mites have been transmitted to us, is only one part of the story. The other part is that by examining the genetics of the mites in different countries, we can get closer to the fact which breeds are closer to each other and how human evolution has been. Given that Demodex has been living with humans for so long, their differences or similarities in different races reveal important historical facts to us.
The results also show that Demodex brevis, which lives at a deep level of the skin, is less similar in people around the world. But the more superficial D. folliculorum is widely distributed in a single form.
