What are Demodex Mites?


Demodex mites are parasites that live in hair follicles, they are relatives of ticks, spiders, scorpions and other arachnids. In the animal kingdom, there are many species of mite, and the Demodex family contains 65.

Of those, only 2 reside on human skin – Demodex Folliculorum and Demodex Brevis.

Demodex mites live in the hair follicles on your scalp, face and body. You can’t see them with your eyes, since they’re microscopic.

So why do most animals, including humans live with these insects?! In humans, they tend to become a problem when a high population density is found. This has been linked to all manner of hair and skin problems.

These symptoms indicate that a high population density of mite is present and needs to be treated correctly.
