Does demodex mites REALLY cause acne?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I know demodex mites exists and can be on most people's face, but I'm still skeptical if it REALLY causes acne? I don't know if it's just a marketing hype trying to sell treatments or what.

Need your inputs... thanks! :)

Marketing hype ... the product is basically sulphur & zinc oxide. Might work for some people, but nothing magical about it.

also, while there are possible links between demodex and some types of rosacea (see pinned thread at top of rosacea forum), I know of no established links between demodex and acne vulgaris.

the demodex scare has come and gone, nothing much to say about it.

It's not the demodex anyway, it's a bacteria that lives in the demodex. Most people respond just fine to tetracycline antibiotics that don't attack the bacteria, which suggests that demodex/it's bacteria isn't the problem.
