Demodex folliculorum home treatment with tea tree oil
The earliest evidence of growing number of Demodex mites (Demodex folliculorum) most often occurs on and near the biggest sebaceous glands, located on the face and on the scalp. Rare but these human hair bugs can start to breed in other parts of human body as well.
One of the reasons for this growth is that the sebum oil from sebaceous glands creates favorable environment for demodex mites. The contents of sebum is one of the major foods for demodex mites.
But, the sebum oil is not the only reason why some people live without even knowing that these bugs exist and others have human demodicosis: overpopulation of Demodex mites to the point where human's immune system is unable to keep these skin mites under control.
Some of us - humans, have strong immune system, others don't. It comes naturally. Our body changes as we grow older so does the immune system. Besides natural changes affecting our body, the antibiotics, chemicals and hormones we use to treat other illnesses affect our immune system as well.
The symptoms of demodex folliculorum may be similar to other skin disorders such as acne, rosacea or blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelash follicles). You should always check with your doctor first to make sure that it is demodex that you have. There are different ways how these human skin bugs can be brought back under control.
