How to test for demodex mites

Testing for demodex mites is very easy, there is absolutely no need to take a biopsy, you will need some tools though.

What you will need:
1: A microscope with some kind of lighting system, the light needs to shine through the glass slide from beneath, otherwise you will not see them, a magnification of 40 to 60 times is enough find them.

2: A tool to scrape the sebum from the face and mix the obtained sample with the oil on the glass slide, U can use the tool we sell but anything will do as long it is not sharp so it doesn't damages the skin.

3: A bit household vegetable oil such as bean oil, grape seed oil, sesame oil, etc. to dissolve the sebum, do not use liquid paraffin, glycerine, shampoo oil etc.

4: A disinfectant to disinfect the scrape tool.
A demodex scraping tool is really nothing special, just a piece of stainless steel more or less pointed and the edges from the first inch or so sharpened but not like a knife, should not be so sharp that it is able to cut, see picture down here.

How to do:

Put a drop of oil on a glass slide, if you like to find out from exactly which part of the skin the mites are coming from you can put more drops of oil on the slide, otherwise put all the samples you obtain in the same drop of oil.

Let's start with the forehead.
Stretch the skin up with your left hand and scrape the skin with the tool downwards, push reasonably hard so the mites are pushed out of the skin, bring the obtained sample to an oil drop on the slide, tap and stir a bit with the point of the tool so the sample will come into the oil.

The chin.
Let the person put his lower lip inside so the chin skin becomes streched, again, scrape the chin skin with the tool downwards, push reasonably hard so the mites are pushed out of the skin, bring the obtained sample to an oil drop on the slide, tap and stir a bit with the point of the tool so the sample will come into the oil.

And finaly the nose
The nose is a bit different, just try to push the top and the sides of the nose quit hard, then collect the sebum or oily substance you pushed out with the tool or something else pointy and mix it with the oil on the glas slide again, tap and stir a bit with the point of the tool so the sample will come into the oil.

  • Healed Rosacea, along with change in diet (3/10/2019) 
    Recommended as topical treatment by Brady Burrows on the Rosacea Forum in 2004. The proscribed 4-month treatment along with change in diet healed rosacea I had been suffering with for 7 years. Treated again for several demodex mite flareups over the next 4 years. Haven't had any rosacea problems since. Now use "ZZ Cream" to quickly and effectively treat occasional pimples. ZZ Cream is the BEST without having to resort to medication if you're willing to be diligent in applying for 4 months.
  • ZZ Cream is amazing... both effective treatment and cost effective (12/9/2019) 
    ZZ Cream is a miracle product that literally delivers on its promises. While I don't have many symptoms of rosecea, I've struggled with demodex for many years. Using this product routinely produced results that genuinely exceeded my expectations and completely cleared my skin. I noticed 60% improvement after the first two weeks and 95% improvement in the past 2 1/2 months. My skin is clear, facial and neckline bumps are gone, redness disappeared and pores are Significantly improved. An added bonus is my skin appears much younger with far less wrinkles. I use approximately one jar per week which may sound expensive to some... but considering what one would have to spend on doctor visits (and likely have lesser results), the price is a bargain. Only caution is: only use this cream around your eyes in the evening before bed, the fumes alone will make your eyes water and appear irritated; but the results are definitely worth this relatively small inconvenience.
