Acne Rosacea Cause Identified

It used to be that people with rosacea acne were thought to be blushing or prey to high blood pressure, but recently the cause of the reddening skin ailment has been identified. Rosacea is caused by a parasite that lives on the skin and around the hair follicles of 98 per cent of adults, but only causes problems in a select few.

The disorder causes skin on the face to become rough lumpy and reddish, and can also cause hair loss, premature aging of the skin, enlarged pores and acne. Sometimes the nose can become bulbous. A new product that kills the human demodex parasite is now widely available, recommended by dermatologists and pharmacists, and receiving good reviews from rosacea sufferers.

Human demodex was isolated and identified by a team of doctors in China. The parasite looks like a microscopic worm and feeds on human skin. It takes just 10 days to grow from egg to adult size and multiplies quickly if not treated properly. Studies have shown babies do not have the parasite at birth, but became infected shortly after being touched by other humans. The infection grows as people get older and some theories suggest the parasites may get out of hand if the immune system is out of balance of if there's too much sugar or yeast in the diet. In the past dermatologists have recommended antibiotics, especially when acne is involved, but results have varied very much.

Human Demodex has no intermediate host.

It passes its whole life in the hair follicles and sebaceous glands of man. It is bisexual and reproduces through intercourse at the openings of hair follicles, after which it goes back to surrounding hair follicles and sebaceous glands to lay eggs and reproduce.

A sample survey conducted of 902,505 people has shown the following results: demodex has been detected on the faces of a staggering 97.68% adult males and females.

There are no national, racial, regional, climatic, occupational and sexual differences in demodex infestation in humans. Since the infestation rate of demodex (qualitative determination) can not be used to analyze it, the infectiosity of demodex (quantitative determination) should be used to explain it.
