Demodex microscopic parasitic mites, cause of acne 90% of the time.

Recommended Posts

So I was searching on youtube videos about acne (just for self torture I guess) and came upon this quirky strange older lady talking about acne. She did research and found the cause of acne 90% of the time according to chinese medicine is microscopic mites, aka demodex, which like oily skin, bury into it, leave eggs and die, leaving infections like acne. It makes sense, don't you think? Why else does every effective acne treatment include drying of the oil on the skin?

I personally haven't ever heard of this mites thing before, but I might give this treatment a shot. But I don't know of any doctors anywhere around my area that does a test for demodex. And I'm not sure I can do it myself. What do you guys think?
