You do not have feel alone. Many people have millions of mites living in their hair and on their skin. These microscopic mites may be linked to intense itching, showers of flakes falling on the shoulders, white flakes in the eyebrows, thinning hair, acne, rosacea, and other skin conditions. "Most people do not like the idea of mites living in their hair or on their skin, and some get really bent out of shape just thinking about it, … and bathing will not wash them off" says Jerry Butler, professor of entomology, University of Florida.
Even though mites can be a very uncomfortable problem with disgusting symptoms, most people with whom we've spoken have never heard of the Demodex mite. It's estimated this mite lives in the hair follicles of 96-98% of people. This skin mite feeds on hormones, and fluids and oils around the hair follicles. Professor Butler has counted as many as 25 mites in a single hair follicle. A surge in the mite population on someone's skin can cause a variety of very unsightly and uncomfortable problems. "When something causes the mites to reproduce at a higher rate, they can break out of the hair follicle and may cause acne, hair loss, and skin conditions. In some cases, the mites can cause the skin to actually slough off."
One sign of mite presence is the creation of port wine discolored areas of skin that appear after scratching in response to intense itching. Demodex mites are responsible for a lot of discomfort, but many physicians are not familiar with this mite and may state that there is no such thing. Veterinarians and ophthamologists, however, are quite familiar with these mites.
The mites feed continuously inside the hair follicle. They are microscopic, transparent like glass, and emerge at night which causes intense itching. Itching can be intense during daylight hours if the mite infestation is particularly severe. Three to five days are required for egg laying and hatching, followed by seven days for the larvae to develop into adults. Their total life span is approximately two to three weeks. They are transferred from host to host by contact, particularly in hair, eyebrows, and tiny sebaceous glands on the nose.
So, what do you do if these mites are making you miserable? One company in the USA is making a line of products that focuses specifically on demodex mite eradication without using toxic "drug like" ingredients. Visit the link below to purchase the products. These products contain seabuckthorn oil. Seabuckthorn oil has a remarkable ability to abate the presence of demodex mites.
Other products may claim to have seabuckthorn oil as the heart of their product (s), but the Pure Fresh Solutions product line is clearly providing people with ample seabuckthorn oil (the best known all natural substance for mite eradication) to achieve the objective of mite abatement.
Seabuckthorn oil is a bright orange color. Any product that uses sufficient amounts of pure seabuckthorn oil will be orange to bright gold in color. The oil is very expensive, $ averaging 300.00 per pint. The "Pure Fresh Solutions" products contain a generous amount of this precious oil, so much that you can see the bright presence in the products.
