This shell has three layers and is well protected from any danger of demodex. In the shell there are no holes, so demodex can hide for a long time and are not communicated to the outside world. This feature gives the structure of demodex special stability, so the disease that it causes, very difficult to treat.
Under normal conditions on healthy skin demodex is a harmless inhabitant of the skin. But under certain conditions it can contribute to the development of skin disease - demodicosis. A prerequisite for the development of demodicosis is a change of the sebaceous glands and the chemical composition of sebum (usually this is in violation of hormonal), violation of the permeability of capillaries (the smallest blood vessels located in the deeper layers of the skin) and the reduction of protective abilities of the skin. Such changes in the skin contribute to the enhanced reproduction of demodex, while there are conditions to bring out its pathogenicity, ie the conditions for the occurrence of inflammation caused by mites.
Today's environmental conditions reduces the protective properties of the organism (immunity) and the formation of various hormonal disorders, so the incidence of demodex
