Bad News, Arachnophobes: All Adults Have Facial Mites

Most people are aware that their bodies are teeming with microscopic life, though that usually focuses on bacteria in the gut or all over the skin (including that cesspool we call a navel). However, less people realize that their skin is crawling with different species of mites: D. folliculorum that lives on their hair follicles and D. brevis that lives in their sebaceous glands. These mites aren’t insects, they’re arachnids. Not that having “microscopic spider-relatives embedded in your skin” is any more or less reassuring...

A lot of folks in convalescent homes and in skilled nursing facilities here in the Southland also have scabies (tiny little mites that used to be associated with sexually transmitted diseases) and bed bugs (a bigger variety of arthropod).

Yes, there are all kinds of critters all around us. We  must learn to co-exist or we will go crazy.
