Preventing reinfection by cleansing home contents?

Post by mayad79 »

Hi all,


Just wondering how to prevent reinfection. Is there a way to rid Demodex mites from the carpet, clothes etc?

Thanks

Honestly I'm not a doctor, but I have been reading as much as possible about demodex mites and I don't think you need to worry so much about your house. From what I understand the mite can only live a day outside its host. You need to worry about any small red dermatitis type legion on your body, because they could be anywhere. If you are worried about external reinfestation, I would just worry about people with rosacea and acne. Otherwise, I wouldn't think about dogs and cats.
