Demodex prevention. Effective ways to prevent demodex mites from attacking human and animal skin

After discussing all parameters about human demodex, from their general morphology, types and behavior, their effects and symptoms, demodectic diagnosis, skin care and treatment. The last thing that we need to do is always the first thing, prevention. If preventing demodectic infestation will be given thought and priority, then there will be no problem at all. All you need to do is habitually maintaining everything to avoid any possible problems that the demodex mites might bring not only to you but also to your family and friends. Prevention will always be the key for saving time and money, and frustrations, so that you don’t have to face various treatments in the future.

Now, if proper hygiene is the key for us to prevent over procreation of these face mites. Then making sure our face is clean at all times is one way of preventing it especially before going to bed. If you use makeups on a daily basis, you need to throw away expired makeups or over used brushes. Or if you are undergoing treatment, try not to use any for the meantime. Making sure all toiletries, towels, clothing, and bed sheets are clean, and should be replaced or washed on a daily or weekly basis. If one family member is proved to have an infestation, you need to check every family member as well. If you have pets, especially a dog, they also need to be checked. Although dogs do a have different species of demodectic mites that is rarely found on humans, it is still good to be safe on checking on them once in a while.

If you are under treatment, for a couple of few weeks, you need to use the prescribed ointment religiously at night alongside with your tea tree products. If such inflammations or an irritation has occurred, a steroidal drug or cream can be used. After so, an antibiotic cream will be then applied for it. Remember that before, ongoing, or after any case. Preventing demodectic infestation would still be needed to consider, always.
