    Demodex can be anywhere on your body that has oil glands. That includes all parts of the body except for the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet. Yes you can get demodex in the areas mentioned. What you are describing could also be caused by bacteria. Demodex typically cause blackheads, skin papules and skin pustules (die offs of mites). In the papules or in pockets just below the skin surface, you may get pockets of what is sometimes referred to as "pore cheese". Pore cheese is white or off white in color and somewhat like cream cheese in consistency - it may be somewhat stringy if removed with gentle pressure. The pore cheese contains dead skin, oil and other debris from the mites similar to what is found in a blackhead.

    When I had an unexpected break out of itchy spots around my mouth, I thought it might be connected to black mold from our damp bathroom. I also thought it was contagious too - I kissed my teenager on the forehead ( forgetting) and she came up in a small pinkish patch with tiny spots. Still a mystery as well.

    I'm thinking that maybe there is still mold under the bath or something that needs sorting out. Or I might be clutching at straws...
