Abstract
We thank Tatu et al for their comment1 on our recent article2 in which they agree with the idea that rosacea-like demodicosis (RLD) and papulopustular rosacea (PPR) may be two phenotypes of the same disease. Tatu et al raise the question of the potential role of some of the numerous species of bacteria3 inadvertently ingested by Demodex that could potentially influence its behaviour.1 We did not explore this interesting hypothesis in our study but agree that this and other types of interactions, such as those of Staphylococcus epidermidis,4 are important areas for future study.
