Frequently Asked Questions

Do you treat scalp folliculitis due to demodex infestion?

Scalp folliculitis is a common skin condition and can be due to mainly bacterial infection, but can sometimes be due to fungal infection, ingrown hair, clogging of the hair follicle, long term use of certain medications like steroid preparation, or low immune system.

Dermodex folliculorum mites are considered as a harmless commensal, which means that these organisms live on our skin usually in the hair follicle without causing any problems. Rarely, due to infestation, it can cause eyes condition like blepharitis with associated itch eyes, or worsening of rosacea. Demodex is not a common cause of scalp folliculitis. There are treatments in the form of creams and in severe cases, tablets.
