Rosacea Could Be Caused By Mites Unleashing Feces Inside Your Pores

Not sure if this belongs here or Clinical trials/studies but here goes anyway:

... lurking in your pores right now are tiny bugs, closely related to spiders, that live off your facial oils. Usually, these bugs are harmless, but harbor too many of them and their tendency to die and decompose while they're inside you becomes a little problematic. In fact, according to National University of Ireland researcher Kevin Kavanagh, the bugs may be responsible for rosacea, a chronic skin disease estimated to effect between 5 and 20 percent of the world's population.

This is related to the lipid makeup in your sebum, ie a deficiency in linoleic acid. It makes the difference between people who are over sensitive and react to such things and people that don't. Actually, it applies to all mammals. They all have mites, but only some lose all their fur and scratch themselves to death.
