Possible help for people with acne and rosacea...
    #3198491 - 09/30/04 02:35 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I just read on google news that the reason for acne has been found (supposedly).
http://www.emediawire.com/releases/2004/9/emw160722.htm
I don't know how true it is. The article states that mites cause acne, rosacea, and other skin problems. Apparently it was eastern doctors that made this discovery. I started reading around about it, and there are two companies that specialize in skin care products that are supposed to kill the mites.

http://www.demodexsolutions.com/
They sell some stuff for this (very expensive). There site also has pictures and videos of the mites, and supposedly the before and after pictures are sent in from customers. The photos do look legit and real, and they show amazing results. They also have a message board and the people on there swear by the stuff. There products seem to have a lot of chemicals in them though.

http://www.facedoctor.ca/
They have products that are supposed to do the same thing, but there products are mostly natural. They use Sea Buckthorn Oil as the active mite killing ingredient (some articles claim it kills the mites better than other chemicals). They are also a bit expensive. There website also has information about the mites.

http://www.aubrey-organics.com/
I order stuff from here every now and then. They carry Sea Buckthorn oil products, but they are much cheaper than the two sites listed above. All natural products.

There are also other places that sell Sea Buckthorn oil products if you google it.

Here is a link to a thread with people's thoughts on the mites.

http://www.geocities.com/thesciencefiles/eyelash/creatures.html
This link shows some great pictures of the mite.

Apparently, everyone has them, but some people have an over-abundance of them. One study even says that 90% of people with acne have it becuase of these mites.

I don't know if any of this is true. I'm just starting to use Aubrey Sea Buckthorn products myself. I just thought someone else might find this interesting. You might try running this by your dermatologist if you have one.

Not to dash your hopes, but I'd take that article with a big grain of salt. I read Google News almost daily (and for quite a while, may I add) and I don't recall this ever being mentioned.
Of course, I could be wrong, and they may have very well found a cure for these afflictions, but I remain skeptical...

Yeah, I understand what you are saying. What I meant is that I found the top link (emediawire) from searching google news. Sorry if I was not clear on that. Search google news for "acne" and the link will show up as one of the first results. The article is only a couple of days old.

As someone who knows, demodex mites do not cause rosacea. It's a genetically based vascular disorder that is far more complicated than an infestation. If the situation was just about mites, it wouldn't be hard to treat. That mite theory has pretty much been absolutely refuted by any expert on rosacea.

I know a bit about these things....
