    While some physicians are not keeping up with demodectic rosacea, those who are up to date usually use dermoscopy to take a demodex density count. There are other tools, i.e., a simple microscope and a cellophane tape scrape [DIY] (see the subhead, Tools to Detect or Quantify Demodex Density Counts in this post, to count them yourself, you may want to ask your physician. You are correct that you could be suffering from 'another parasite, infection or allergy' since the differential diagnosis to rule out other conditions/diseases is massive. Recommend you see a dermatologist to confirm a proper diagnosis. An internet diagnosis at a rosacea forum or private social media group is not the best way to go about discovering what you are suffering from.

    You can learn a lot about demodectic rosacea in this category of posts.

    You could google it. I haven't heard of anyone complain of this in RF, or for that matter, you are the first one to complain of this. It would be prudent to ask your physician about this, not to mention ruling out other diseases that this might be.
