Acute inflammatory Demodex-induced pustulosis in an immunocompetent patient related to topical steroid use.

Pediatr Dermatol. 2020 Jul 29;:

Authors: Guzman AK, Gittler JK, Amin B, Srikantha R, Balagula Y

Abstract
Demodex spp. mites are a common colonizer of sebaceous adult skin. Though usually clinically insignificant, demodicosis may be associated with a wide spectrum of skin diseases in immunocompetent hosts, such as erythematotelangiectatic and papulopustular rosacea, Demodex folliculorum, and blepharitis. We present a case of a healthy 9-year-old boy with an exuberant, inflammatory, Demodex-associated pustular eruption of the face, induced by the use of a high-potency topical steroid and successfully treated with oral ivermectin.

PMID: 32729151 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
