PICTURES (IMAGES) OF DEMODICOSIS, DEMODEX FOLLICULORUM (DEMODEX MITES) IN HUMANS.
Pictures (images) of Human Demodex shown below are divided into three different types by severity of the disease. Treatment of demodicosis is determined by a doctor depending on the severity of the symptoms. Unlike demodex mange or red mange which affect animals and can cover entire body, human demodex choose to settle only on the facial skin. Not often but the mites can cause troubles in eyelashes, eyebrows and eyelids. This type of infestation called Blepharitis. Human type of demodex mites can also settle on the scalp causing severe itching and hair loss if left without treatment. These areas of demodex infestation need specially made treatments: medicated shampoo for head demodicosis, facial cream to kill the mites of the face and eye lotion to treat demodex on eyelashes, eyelids and eyebrows.
First Stage of Demodicosis (Demodex) in Humans shown on pictures (images) below
The initial or First Stage of Demodicosis in Humans is impossible to see with naked eye. Only your doctor can tell if you have demodex mites on the skin. When you visit a dermatologist, ask him to check the skin scraping under a microscope for positive diagnosis. Often the symptoms can tell if you have the mites but when it comes to the first stage of demodicosis, the symptoms and signs may resemble to other skin conditions. Therefore the test for demodex is advised. If you had been diagnosed with demodex and only the facial skin is infected, the beginning stage of human Demodex can be treated with topical cream or lotion. Special facial wash should be used intead of regular soap to avoid over drying of the skin. Use of cosmetics: night creams, moisturizers etc., must be limited or stopped for the duration of the treatment.
Healthy immune system controls demodex. One of the reasons why most of us don't know about demodex. Some of us, have strong immune system, others don't. It comes naturally. Our body changes as we grow older so does the immune system. There are many reasons why the immune system can loose its strength. Besides natural changes affecting our body, the antibiotics, chemicals and hormones we take to treat other illnesses suppress our immune system. The symptoms of demodicosis: the uncontrolled breed of demodex 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.
Besides living near sebaceous glands on face, chin, forehead and other parts of human body, demodex can live on scalp. There are few natural products available which can help to stop demodex infestation. As it was already mentioned, use of anti demodex products with antibiotics and chemicals must be avoided. In order to reduce demodex infestation and bring demodicosis under control, you should use natural anti demodex products: face cream, the shampoo for scalp demodicosis and anti demodex eye lotion.
Depending on the severity of the demodex you can choose from different treatments: prescription medications and over the counter remedies which can help to fight back the mites. While treating demodicosis on the face, the eyes or the scalp, keep in mind that the main reason why the mites started to multiply is weak immune system. With this in mind, you should stay away from chemical products as much as possible. Antibiotics and other chemicals as effective as it may be in the short run, can be used for short period of time, as preventative measure to stop the skin infections often caused by the mites. Longer use of antibiotics and hormones can suppress the immune system of the skin and incourage the mites to multiply instead of killing them.
