Demodex; infection and age condition

Date11/7/2022 4:48:34 PM
Demodex is prevalent in places of the skin where sebaceous glands are numerous and active. The face is the parasite's most frequent host. The cheeks and forehead, as well as the nose, temples, chin, and neck, are areas where parasites have been found more commonly.

Demodex infection rates rise with aging, reaching 100% in the elderly. The condition is common in people between the ages of 50 and 70. Breastfeeding or intimate contact during the first few days after birth are the two main ways that demodex is transmitted to the newborn; however, because children produce less sebum than adults, infants have lower demodex densities. Nevertheless, sporadic cases in kids with leukemia and HIV have been observed.
