Mighty Mites are really the problem

Updated: Sep 24, 2023

Mighty Mites are really the problem

MITES are insects that survive off the sebum our bodies produce. Children under five don’t have enough sebum production to be a proper host. I recommend adequate cleansing if your child is prone to sweating,

If you combine all your skin concerns, you will need several different products:

  • Your acne cleanser doesn’t address aging mutations.

  • Your wrinkle cream doesn’t address Rosacea or sensitivities.

  • Your day cream doesn’t solve the black bumpy patches of blackheads.

Different skin concerns require unique ingredients. Mighty Mites are really the problem that’s causing all those conditions to begin.

Skin conditions, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, discoloration, blackheads, whiteheads, bumps under the skin, Rosacea, dryness, swelling, puffiness, wrinkles, large pores, oiliness, and poor complexation, premature aging, flaking, poor complexation, hair loss, inflammation, poor immune system, psoriasis, eczema, bad breath, alopecia, Blepharitis, broken capillaries, dry eyes, pink eye and so much more exist because of the infestation of mites occurring on our very own body.

These MITES are transferable and can transfer bacteria/ viruses/diseases (Including STDs) from one host to another. They prefer female hormones; more numbers are in women than men. Men with beards and excessive body hair will have more mites than the average woman. These mites bury themselves into their hosts’ pores, ducts and glands. Humans have approximately 5 million pores all over their bodies (a few hundred thousand more pores for men).

These mites have a 14-18-day life span (eggs to adults). When they die, they remain in our pores, slowly being pushed to the surface to be washed off as we regularly cleanse ourselves and remove layers of dead skin. (Thank God for scrubs)

Demodex Folliculorum and Demodex Brevis mites are on the human body. They do not defecate. Improper cleansing allows them to decompose in your pores when they die, releasing fumes and bacteria from everything they hold inside.

A single female Demodex can lay 10 to 12 eggs per pore. Multiply that by the number of pores in the human body. That would mean you have approximately 50-60 million eggs waiting to hatch all over your body and feed off every square centimetre of your body. Five adults’ Demodex per cm2 (approx. six pores) is considered pathogenic and an infestation that will lead to several different skin conditions, including Demodicosis, and without daily cleansing, your body can make an environment where six or more adult demos can live in a single pore.

They prefer hosts between 20-40 years old because that is when human sebum production is at its highest peak. Demodex thrives in this oily environment. The older their host gets, the better the living condition is for them. Wrinkles act as a cozy cave in which they can dwell peacefully. Enlarged pores provide more significant cuddle numbers to lay more eggs in. A weaker immune system also gives them more strength to live.

Signs that you have MITES

  • Random tickling sensations are signs they are walking across your skin.

  • Random pinching sensations

  • Random itches

  • Little bumps under the skin (buildup of eggs)

  • Some blackheads are a buildup of dead mite bodies, and the protruding bumps you can scrape off are their tails exposed above the skin.

  • When you find a little pebble-like substance on your eyelashes

  • When your eyes get randomly itchy

  • When you sometimes feel like something got into your eye, rinsing it doesn’t help, and the particular seems to have moved. (Sometimes the demos fall from your eyelashes into your eye.)

  • When your eyelashes start to fall out more than normal

  • When your eyebrows get itchy or start losing hair

  • When you feel something moving in your hair or get a sudden desire to scratch your scalp

  • If you have fake eyelashes (This one is for sure)

  • Heavy or thick make-up used regularly

Recommended medicated creams that contain killing agents:

Crotamiton: leads to severe burning sensations, stinging, irritation, rashes, and redness. It stops the sense of itching by producing a counter-irritation.

Metronidazole: Minor reactions include- nausea, mouth dryness, vomiting, and diarrhea—severe reactions include cerebellar toxicity and lithium toxicity. Central nervous system dysfunctions like Ataxic gait, dysarthria, seizures, and encephalopathy produce abnormal sperm and lead to reproductive organ toxicity.

Permethrin: Mild Burning and stinging, redness, swelling, rashes, numbness or tingling where the medicine was applied, considered a low to moderate toxin, causes enlargement of the life and causes nerve damage and reproductive organ toxicity.

Ivermectin: Counteracts with face mites that don’t respond to other treatments. People with compromised immune systems use this. Possible side effects include dizziness, nausea, and vomiting.

The above products meant to address the issue will lead to further skin issues and premature aging!
