Did you know that demodex, a little-known parasite, has been widely living parasitically in the skin of humans and animals since the existence of life? It could be said that, where there are humans and animals there is demodex. It lives in human and animal hair follicles and sebaceous glands. It can pass through hair follicle pores freely, feeding on endoplasm. It can pass through hair follicle pores freely, feeding on endoplasm in the hair follicles and sebaceous glands. It reproduces very fast, with one generation in about 14 days. Its scientific genus is Demodex. It travels through the hair follicles and was first discovered in the hair follicles. Thus it is also known as hair follicle mite.

The revolutionary find in dermatology

97.68% Yes! A starting 97.68% of human adults unknowningly have on them very parasitic natured mite known as 'Demodex' (a hair-follicle mite). This information might surprise you, but the figures are derived from Dr. Qu Kui Zun's worldwide clinical observations and epidemiological studies over a 48 years period, between 1955 till today. His three decade long study involved a total number of 905,801 participants, of various races, ages and occupations.

How many species of DEMODEX are there?
Basically two, Demomex Folliculorum - the much longer mite that survives in the hair follicles and Demodex Brevis - the mite that lives in the sebaceous glands.

What damage can DEMODEX do?
Demodex Folliculorum pokes into hair follicles, sucks out the nutrients and those at the root of the hair. Consequently, the hair follicles become enlarged and infected. The final result is hair loss and inflammation of the surrounding tissue. Demodex Brevis feeds on the nutrients in the sebaceous glands.
As a result, the sebaceous glands become infected and inflamed i.e. poliferated.
But, when both the Demodex are present, the damage can be substantial. Demodex breeds and multiples fast (2 weeks) and as a result of which causes the pores to enlarge leaving the skin rough and even inflamed. Acne Rosacea is therefore caused by increasing Demodex activity.

Do I have DEMODEX?
If your skin is rough and has a tendency to flush around your facial region or there is considerable hair loss, then there is a strong possibility that there is DEMODEX activity.

How do I have DEMODEX?
Dr. Qu Kui Zun invented the 'Sebum Quantifying Instrument' by which the squeezed sebum (from skin) was put under the microscope to examine the density as well as the quantitative diagnostic criteria.

Human demodex is distributed all over the world, commonly living in the hair follicles and sebaceous glands of human beings. From the evolutionary viewpoint, its ecological relationship with man can be traced back to primitive times. It may have already co-existed with man and animals since early times and has since adapted to man's later development and survived until today.

Demodex has its unique adaption in its evolution. This adaptation requires it be guaranteed a niche in the host's body it infests. Therefore, a fixed infesting position (specific location) and a constant food source as well as a corresponding unique transmitting mode (transmission mechanism) are needed.

In its long evolutionary adaptation, the human demodex, which infests the long cavity hair follicles and short cavity sebaceous glands of humans, has formed two species with differing characteristics, one with an elongated body and the other with a short one. These unique habitats - hair follicles and sebaceous glands - are their best surviving niches. They are bisexual copulating the follicle openings and reproducing in their infesting territories. They transmit through close contact of the host and survive generation after generation.


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 ) cannot be used to analyze it, the infectiosity of demodex (quantitative determination) should be used to explain it.
