  • Acne - skin lesions caused byconditionally pathogenic parasite of the genus Demodex mites. Demodex lives in the hair follicles, sebaceous glands in the skin, glands century. Mites are microscopic and not visible to the naked eye.

    The speed of movement of demodex on the skin - 8-16 mm / hour. It feeds on sebum.

    ticks stops outside the host. At t ° + 30 °, + 40 °, they
    show maximum activity and, therefore, often worsening demodectic
    It occurs in the spring and summer, in the period of maximum temperature,
    after taking a hot bath, a long stay in the hot room
    etc. For a long time ticks live in a vegetable oil, petrolatum,
    cosmetic cream. Tar, kreazol, carbolic acid, chloroform,
    Live kill them instantly, 96 ° alcohol - in 3-4 minutes, 10 °
    alcoholic solution of salicylic acid - 1 minute.

    What causes demodectic

    Demodex genus are found in 60% of adults, but the disease
    It does not arise at all. Men and women are equally common demodekoz
    often. It is considered normal number of ticks 0-1, sickness -
    3-4 tick more 6 eyelashes.

    As a result, long-term
    co-existence between mites and host develops
    stable equilibrium (carrier) in which the effects of the parasite
    balanced by a healthy immune mechanisms carrier host. Under
    the influence of various factors, the equilibrium is disturbed and there
    manifestations of demodectic mange. The external factors provoking occurrence
    demodectic mange include: exposure to high temperatures, solar
    exposure, adverse conditions for household and professional use, operation
    on the eyeball. The internal factors contributing to the emergence of
    demodectic mange include changes in the patient's organism immunity
    result of diseases of the nervous, cardiovascular and hormonal (eg,
    diabetes) systems, gastrointestinal and liver disorders
    in metabolic processes, reduce immunity.

    What are the symptoms of demodicosis

    massage age of them is thick or slivko- or medoobraznoe
    discharge. Noticeable small pustules on the free edge of the eyelids and
    multiple papillary formation on the skin between the lashes. at
    demodicosis age may be meager, often frothy, mucous discharge
    eyes. As a result of violations of the century glands function decreases layer
    tear film, its evaporation is enhanced, leading to the syndrome of "dry eyes".

    How is the diagnosis of demodectic

    Diagnosis of demodicosis
    made eye doctor. Laboratory diagnosis of demodectic

    the presence of the patient in the doctor's office, carried out by identifying
    ticks on remote eyelashes (eyelash should be svezheudalennoy).
    Sveeeudalennuyu eyelash for research is placed on a glass slide,
    Pour 10-20% solution of caustic alkali, gasoline, kerosene or
    glycerol coated glass slide and examined under

    How is the treatment of demodectic mange

    Acne, diagnosis and treatment
    demodectic long, 4-6 weeks. For the treatment of demodectic mange apply
    protivokleschevye preparations 1-2% yellow mercury ointment and tsinkihtiolovaya

    Good results are obtained with an ointment or gel 2% metronidazole (Clione, Metrogil).

    Ointments with hormones (eg, eye hydrocortisone) reduce local immunity and lead to an increase in the number of ticks.

    Auxiliary treatment of demodectic mange include: artificial tear formulations with the syndrome of "dry" eyes,
    processing edges of the eyelids Dimexidum solution, aqueous infusion of tansy,
    alcohol tincture of wormwood, massage eyelids with disturbance of function of glands century,
    D'Arsonval, magnetic therapy, electrophoresis forever with diphenhydramine, zinc
