What is the Acne and Parasite linkage? There defiantly is one and really should be discussed on this forum. Has no one mentioned it?

There are 2 species of mites in humans, Demodex folliculorum and D. brevis that inhabit the sebaceous glands. They are common around the eyes and nose and can cause granulomatous skin eruptions as well as introduce acne causing bacteria into skin follicles, but that's only in susceptable hosts. Most people carry a variety of parasites and symbiotic microflora and never have problems.
