I'm 20 year old guy. And this is a field guide and record to my life. I want to experience what real life is but so far i havent gotten there yet.
Demodex folliculorum is a benign little worm-like creature that likes to live on skin, preferably in hair follicles. Hair follicles provide their main food source, hair and oil in abundance.
Humans are born free of Demodex, but during childhood, through contact with others, the skin becomes infected. For the most part, we never know they are there. The most common problem with Demodex is that they can cause irritation, particularly in the eyelashes. If you have itchy eyelashes, Demodex may be the problem.
