Join us to get your most burning questions answered about Demodex mites, their symptoms, and treatment- new topics every week!
One of the most common questions we get at Ungex is ‘What do Demodex mites look like?’. Because of their microscopic size, this is often frustrating for people that they can’t get a look at what is causing their skin problems or show their medical professionals for validation.
We often get asked why Tea Tree Oil won’t kill Demodex populations in humans effectively, and is quite simple: Because of the nature of where Demodex mites live (deep under the skin), Tea Tree Oil alone is not enough to ensure the full elimination of Demodex mites populations on human skin.
Often, one of the first questions we get asked is, are Demodex mites contagious in humans? In short, yes they are. They are transferred through either physical contact or the sharing of personal care items such as hairbrushes, bedding, towels, etc. so it’s very common for people who live together to share these uninvited guests.
