Hiii. I’m new here. I dont know what to tell you. I’m a 25 year old female. I’ve been getting this pimple like bumps and pustules(4 derms told me it was acne) but nothing gets rid of them. I went and took a test for demodex. It came back positive. Doss this look like ot? Or could it be just a casual finding?
I will give you more insight. like 8 months go I started getting break outs which I thought were due to my period, but now they are more frequent. I have taken pretty much everything short of accutane. From oral AB to topical creams to anti fungus. It wasn’t getting better and My face is itchy and burns. Sometimes my whole body would burn. So I decided to do multiple test and one day and the lab the lady asked me have you searched for demodex? I was skeptical at first but I took the test and came back positive. When I’m on tetracycline everything is pretty much clear then bad this bastards would appear again. out of nowhere. The itching and the burning started one day at the gym. There once was one in my jaw line that had yellow fluid coming out of it. I thought it was acne at first but it wasn’t getting better. My face also feels really dry and scaly, I would get this scales around my mouth, between my eyebrows and around my nose. Also my cheeks never seem to have anything but persistent erythema. Plus sometimes I get crust around my eyelashes and they are starting to fall off
