Symptoms Of Demodex Mites
See below: Dog mange caused by demodex mites is not considered to be highly contagious to humans with strong immune systems, but mange caused by sarcoptic or cheyletiella mites is extremely contagious to all humans. When passed to humans, sarcoptic mites may cause mosquito like bumps or a full blown scabies infestation of the skin. Cheyletiella mites can cause itchy rashes and remain on human skin for extended period
Itching/Inflammation: The mites live in the hair follicle and oil glands of the skin. It carries bacteria and when it dies releases this bacteria which causes an immune reaction leading to inflammation and redness. The mites move to the skin surface at night causing a sensation of bugs under the skin. Treatment of the infection and underlying disorder is key to it, s eradication
I have been diagnosed with seborrheic dermatitis but some of my symptoms are similar to demodex mite infestation? Struggling with the itch.
Minor mystery: Nobody really knows how prevalent demodex is, and what role it may play in some of the dermatitis syndromes especially on the face.
NO!!!!: Look up demodex. Most adults and many children carry them. The older you are the more you have. They rarely if ever cause any symptoms. No antibiotics are used for this, but sometimes permethrin cream is used. In case of scabies, they protect their territory and repel scabies mites from the face and scalp. You need to stop the enormous dose of folic acid, take Vitamin B12 instead.See 3 more doctor answers

I have demodex mites burrowing into my scalp. It hurts so bad and it's consuming me. I need a natural remedy. I think my scalp is infected.
No need for remedy: We all have demodex mite in the skin of our face and scalp. That is very unlikely to cause you any problems. Just shampoo your scalp, at least 3-4 times/week. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

Get a diagnosis: Demodex is found in nearly everyone, it is normally present in the scalp and does not cause problems in most people, so usually no treatment is required. Demodex could play a role in aggravating certain skin conditions such as Rosacea, and chronic blepharitis. If you have a skin problem, see a doctor to get it diagnosed and treated.
I have dry, flaky cheeks. And also I have pale skin sometimes I do have pimples. My skin gets irritated and red easily. Can this be demodex mites?
Unknown if cause: Or coincidental. Studies have found that about 40% of people have the mites on their skin, and they are more frequently seen on people with psoriasis, rosacea and acne than healthy skin, but no studies to proven cause and effect or whether the increased sebum in those conditions is conducive to growth. Permethrin or 5% tea tree oil may improve the inflammation if used for several weeks.
Lice?: If you are talking about lice, body lice are tiny animals that infect humans. They are contracted by skin-to-skin contact with persons who have them, or by wearing their clothes. Head lice and body lice are caused by the same animal; pubic lice is caused by a slightly different but related mite. The primary symptom is itching.
Torsemide: Demadex is a brand name for torsemide which is a loop diuretic which increases excretion of sodium, chloride and water. It is used in heart failure, renal failure, high blood pressure or cirrosis of the liver.
