The skin is the body's largest organ. It is continually regenerating itself, forming new cells as old cells die and are shed. The skin is also a host to many organisms such as bacteria, viruses, mites and other parasites. These organisms live with us in a symbiotic state. It is only when a normal balance is disturbed that skin diseases present themselves.
Acne and acne rosacea are two conditions that can crop up at any time and affect the appearance of the skin. Red, rough or lumpy skin are usual presentations of rosacea. Hair loss is also a symptom. For fair skinned individuals, rosacea is more easily seen.
Research has been ongoing in all parts of the world to combat rosacea infection. Many people find relief but others seem to be resistant to these treatments.
In China, research has concentrated on a parasite called human demodex folliculorum mite. This microscopic worm infects over 98 per cent of adults, living in hair follicles or on hair or eyelashes. They also may reside in sebaceous glands of the face.
A line of products has been formulated to address infestation by demodex. It is called Face Doctor. It is available in soap, cream and shampoo products. Face Doctor products use herbal ingredients to fight the parasite. The main ingredient is seabuckthorn oil. Several other ingredients, such as Vitamin E and aloe vera are added to soothe and protect the skin.
