    Also, hypothetically, if this were to be a demodex issue, why would demodex react to food?

    There are many mechanisms through which sugar, carbohydrate and dairy may impact on rosacea - increasing blood pressure (e.g. spikes in the evening when people often complain their flushing is the worst after eating several meals during the day), triggering intolerances or allergies, etc. It may be that the mites only react at the end of the process when the blood reaches the facial skin (i.e. living in the upper and lower layers of the skin and creating redness and pustules/papules - not always both). People report being able to control demodex mites through what they eat/take orally, both in negative and positive ways - e.g. reducing sugar and carbohydrates and also taking supplements (e.g. olive leaf extract) or ivermectin (medication).


    Demodex mites certainly appear the strongest avenue of research in terms of rosacea currently, with multiple ongoing research projects, however as with most dermatology research, diet is often ignored as a factor. The most thorough research seems to be done by Professor Frank Powell and colleagues in Dublin.

    Thanks antwantsclear! It is still hard for me to see how food intske affects demodex. People have reported that after treating for demodex they could eat what they want. But yes, might have something to do with blood reaching the face, but how would demodex... ok... I’ll just stop here :/

    The 7th day of the experiment today. As expected, no luck... No change at all.
