Skin Mite (magnified view)

Studies suggest that Demodex Mites and the bacteria they carry, including Bacillus oleronius, may play at least a secondary role in rosacea, particularly in the papulopustular variety. No causative role has been established for Demodex Mites in rosacea, but studies seem to suggest that the mites thrive in the abnormal TH2 inflammatory environment and contribute to some of the symptoms of rosacea.
