  • Are you a rosacean?
  1. Brady I read that dogs have a different type of mite on them. One that does not/can not live on human skin. Are you saying this is inaccurate? Or dated information? Could you please link me to some info. I cannot find anything about humans getting mites from dogs. Also should I be at all concerned about spreading mites to my dog? I realize I'm being a bit neurotic about all this. But I believe in being thorough.
  2. Kind of weird subject. Especially considering all people with rosacea seem to have demodex mites. Also considering a large percentage of the populace seem to have them. Of course they do not react like some do and it never becomes a problem. I strongly suspect I am suffering from a demodex mite infestation. My symptoms coincide with other testimonials. Also the pictures I've seen from medical papers do resemble my skin condition. Specifically the white "spikes" inside of pores. But here is my question I will be staying with my out of state gf for an extended period. We will be sharing a bed etc. Do I need to be concerned in any way shape or form? The last thing I want to do is spread mites. And from what I've read something as simple as a hug can spread them. I am thinking about this like some sort of STD. And I'm not sure if that's a logical way to look at it. But again from what I've read it sure seems like one. Sexual contact was listed as one of the ways to spread it.. after a hug. Which I found to be strange. I am seeing my dermatologist on the 7th of this month. I will be hopefully starting soolantra and continuing with bactrim. I cannot take oracea. I found out in my teens that I am allergic to tetrocycline. So anything in the cycline family is a no go for me. Which is why I was put on bactrim (I hope I'm spelling that correctly). I am aware of the gold standard treatment. My dermatologist must be slightly out of touch. Because the first topical I was given is finacea. Which isn't doing anything for me. Do I need to cancel this trip and warn my girlfriend? I am extremely embarrassed to tell her that I could quite possibly be covered in mites. But I would be willing to do the right thing obviously. She does know I have rosacea of course. But it just doesn't seem fair to not warn her. I know she would be really upset about me cancelling the trip. But I'd do it if it was necessary. Thanks in advance. If anyone is willing to answer or link me to a legitimate source of information. I would greatly appreciate it. So far I'm just finding articles that from sources I don't fully trust. This seems like a better place for this info than the search engine.
