To this day, there is still a limitation of information about Demodex mites and what many people don’t know is that they have been linked to various common skin and hair conditions. These mites in large numbers can cause or worsen skin and hair issues in some people if justifyuntreated – let’s take a look at the common symptoms of Demodex mites.
What are Demodex mites?
Demodex mites are microscopic 8-legged parasites that live in the skin and hair follicles of mammals, which includes human beings as well. However, the species of Demodex on animals and on humans differ; so don’t worry just yet about your pet’s Demodex infestation being contagious to you!
Whether or not they are harmful and have been the cause to the symptoms you’re experiencing depends on the density of these mites existing in your skin. If you have a high population density of Demodex mites, you may experience some inevitable skin, hair, and scalp issues. Let’s take a look at some of the symptoms caused by Demodex.
What are the symptoms caused by Demodex mites?
Demodex mites feed on the nutrients of our hair follicles and as they continue to live and multiply their numbers, they release harmful bacteria, which may result in a number of hair and skin issues.
Our immune system and lifestyle also play huge roles in the lifespan of Demodex mites on our skin. In an infected person with a low immune system, the following symptoms tend to be more noticeable:
- Demodex acne occurs when excess oil production and dead skin cells clog your hair follicles, causing symptoms like whiteheads, blackheads and/or pimples to appear on the face and other parts of the body;
- Demodex rosacea is a common skin condition that causes flushing and redness, and sometimes may also produce small, red pus-filled bumps to appear across the center of the face;
- Demodex itching is an irritating sensation that makes you want to scratch your skin to relieve the uncontrollable feeling;
- Demodex hair loss refers to the loss of hair from parts of the head or body;
- Demodex hair thinning is a situation in which hair follicles become fewer or smaller, and is usually caused by signs of aging, lifestyle habits, and genetics;
- Demodex blepharitis is an inflammation of the oil glands in the eyelids that affects the eyelashes and tear production;
- Demodex dandruff is a common scalp condition that results in the flaking of the skin on your scalp;
- And many more hair and skin issues.
Do all Demodex-instated people have discernible signs?
Some people may have Demodex mites present under their skin or scalp without any detectable symptoms. There are many factors that add to being cautious about the population density of Demodex on your skin, so it is important to decrease stress in your life and try to maintain a healthy and well-balanced life to control them.
