How would you know it's not demodex without looking at it.  I was told by every dermatologist I went to that it was seborrheic dermatitis.  I knew it was mites but one believed me.  I tired everything under the sun and nothing worked.  Finally I found someone who did a skin shaving test and guess what?  Demodex.



I just don't know why you would assume it's dermatitis.  Why is the medical community so afraid to address this issue?  Why not ask more questions?  You're supposed to be the expert.
