Thank you for contacting us regarding demodex test. Being American based company, we can not direct you to a place in Australia where you can go and have yourself tested on the mites or any other skin parasites. We can tell you though, that it is a simple test which can be done in any family doctor’s office or by visiting a dermatologist. All they have to do is make a few scrapes from different parts of your face, put it under the microscope and nurse or a doctor will be able to see if there are any demodex mites present in the skin.

You ought to keep in mind though, that demodex have three stages: Mild, Moderate and Severe. If you just starting to noticing demodex presence: itching of the skin, crawling sensation increasing at night (mild stage – last up to six month), then you may need to be retested if no mites where found in the first test.The mites go deep inside hair follicles, skin pores and in mild stage, number of mites are still low, therefore, first test may not show positive results.

Also, there are two type of demodex which exist on human skin: D.Folliculorum and Demodex Brevis. A given individual may have both species and/or one or the other. The hardest to be found is Demodex Brevis. This parasite stays deep inside sebaceous glands and may not show up on the surface at all (while in mild stage – when number of parasites are still low).

While searching for a physician in Australia who can provide the test, look at the symptoms, they are very different from scabies, dermatitis or rosacea. By comparing the symptoms of there skin disorders you can tell very accurately if you demodex mites or not.

In any event, treating demodex with antibiotics, steroids and other harsh chemicals will not help to get rid of them. Chemicals are immunosuppressant drugs and must be avoided in demodex treatment.
