Subcutaneous mite on the face
The subcutaneous tick is a parasite, about 0 in size.2-0.4 millimeters, which parasitizes under the human skin. For the place of its habit the mite selects sebaceous glands, hair follicles. Sometimes a tick spreads in the area of the eyelashes and eyebrows. A subcutaneous tick is often seen on the face. Typically, the mite affects the oily skin of adolescents. Before the period of puberty, the sebaceous glands of a person do not function, and after this period, thanks to the developed sex hormones, the glands intensively begin their work. This is the cause of oily skin in adolescence. Subcutaneous mite on the face can appear on healthy skin. This can happen if the skin contains a large amount of subcutaneous fat.
In the event that the fat of the sebaceous glands disappears andthe tick will have nothing to eat, it will disappear by itself without any treatment. But if for a long time the skin remains oily, the tick will multiply with greater intensity. Consequently, the struggle against it will require considerable effort.
A subcutaneous mite on the face can affect eyelids, eyebrows, forehead, nasolabial folds, chin, ears. Less often the parasite suffers from the chest and back.
It is dangerous that the products produced by the tickvital activity, represent a very strong allergen, which quite often becomes one of the factors of skin infection. Demodecosis is a disease that causes a subcutaneous tick in a person.
Symptoms of the disease are as follows: appearance on the skin of pink acne, seborrhea, inflammation and redness of the eyelids, a strong unbearable itch. Over time, the symptoms of the disease increase, and in addition to the main signs, there may be abundant lacrimation, the sensation of a foreign object in the eyes, redness of the eyes, loss of eyelashes and the formation of white scales. However, at first, the subcutaneous tick can not cause any symptoms or cause slight eye irritation. It is dangerous that in consequence of parasitization of the tick, demodectic blepharitis and blepharoconjunctivitis can occur, affecting the eyes and bearing a specific character.
Subcutaneous mite on the face often occurs in children,suffering from diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, lungs and farsightedness. Also the most susceptible to this disease are people with weakened immunity, trichomoniasis, metabolic disorders.

Demodecosis is a chronic illness that periodically exacerbates. Usually, the exacerbations are seasonal in nature and occur in the spring and autumn.
