Demodex eggs are undoubtedly one of the pieces of their treatment puzzle. If it is ignored, the succession of the treatment will remain a dream instead of coming to reality. Join Ozidex to know how to get rid of them.
Fundamentally, life is the most precious and rooted asset of any living being. That’s why everyone fights for their survival, leading to what we know as the ‘struggle for existence.’ One of the strategic points in this struggle is ‘reproduction.’ In other words, life is going on in the creature’s generation, so this is where it is most protected.
Keep it Simple and Survive: Reproduction
Reproduction is one of the fundamental characteristics of life. In other words, wherever there is life, reproduction is an integral part. What is alive creates the most similar organism in various ways to maintain or even enhance its place in the universe.
Initially, reproduction takes place at the molecular level, then at the cellular level, and finally, at the living level. To clarify, first of all, the molecules inside the cell, such as the genetic material and so on, get doubled. Then the cells get doubled., And at the last step, a new organism comes into existence.
Reproduction occurs in two ways. The parent-offspring resemblance depends mostly on it.
In this type of reproduction, only one parent is involved, passing on a copy of all their genes to their offspring. The generation yielded by asexual reproduction is a ‘clone,’ which means they are precisely like their parents genetically. This method of reproduction is common among simple organisms, such as bacteria and single cells. However, in addition to sexual reproduction, some plants and animals also have asexual proliferation.
In this method, the offspring’s birth requires both male and female. The male and female both produce special cells called gametes, each of which has half the genes needed to make a whole organism. Therefore, to create the next generation, male and female gametes must combine to form a cell with all the necessary genes. In the next stage, the new cell keeps growing to shape a new organism with its own genetic traits. This method of reproduction is common among advanced organisms such as animals and plants.
Although some organisms, such as worms and plants, have both male and female sexual organs, most animals are either male or female. So are Demodex mites. They reproduce sexually, and both males and females can be identified by their appearance. To know more about Demodex eggs, keep reading.
Sexual Reproduction: Types of Fertilization
To have a successful sexual reproduction, male and female gametes must fuse to form a single cell called a zygote, which will grow and develop into a full-function offspring by mitosis. This fertilization may take place either internally or externally.
This type of fertilization is common among animals that either live in water or return to it for reproduction, like fish and amphibians.
In this method, the parents release a large number of male gametes (sperm) and female gametes (ova) into the water at the same time. A small number of these gametes collide ultimately and ‘randomly’ with each other to make the initial cell of the new creature (zygote).
This type of fertilization is common among terrestrial creatures and a small number of aquatic beings.
In this method, the female gamete remains within her body. The male gametes are introduced into the female reproductive system by the male animal, and fertilization occurs in the female animal’s body.
From a Zygote to a Complete Organism
In external fertilization, the zygote grows outside the female’s body, in the water. Therefore, all the necessary substances required for fetus growth must be stored inside the zygote. Furthermore, the egg must have a solid wall to protect the organism.
In the case of internal fertilization,
- In mammals, the zygote grows in the body of a female. It grows and develops by mitosis to create an embryo. Interestingly, the mitosis pattern is unique in each living thing, leading to their different appearances. Initially, the embryo uses food in the egg for several days. It then establishes a relationship with the mother’s blood by forming an organ called the placenta to receive food and oxygen from the mother and transfer back its waste products to her blood. The placenta attaches to the fetus through the umbilical cord.
- In birds and reptiles, known as laying animals, the egg cell leaves the female animal’s body with a large number of food reserves and a protective calcareous shell and grows outside the body.
How Do Demodex Mites Reproduce?
Demodex mites are microscopic arthropods hosted by mammals. They usually live in the hair follicles and sebaceous glands. As mentioned, Demodex mites reproduce sexually by mating. They lay eggs that are heart-shaped and only have one-tenth of a millimeter long. Female mites lay 15 to 20 eggs after mating.
They do not care for their eggs, as birds do, for example. As mentioned above, eggs contain all the nutrients needed for the development of Demodex embryos. The eggs hatch into 6-leg larvae after a few days. Demodex females’ grace for their larvae is to settle them in a place rich in nutrients- follicles and sebaceous glands. As the leading food of Demodex is oil, concerning the abundance of food and a safe environment, there is no need for the mother Demodex to take care of her larvae as a bird does. After birth, the larvae move in this nutrient-rich pathway and gradually reach the skin’s surface after a few days.
Demodex larvae mature on the surface and turn into eight-legged grown Demodex mites. They mate again and go beneath the surface to lay eggs.
Demodex Eggs, The Most Protected Ring in Their Lifecycle
As mentioned at the beginning, reproduction is one of the most important strategies of all living things in the way of struggling for survival. In other words, by preserving the next generation, survival is guaranteed. Maybe that’s why most living things try to protect their children instead of themselves in life-threatening situations.
So, it makes sense that if we seek to remove the existing one, we should cut off its life cycle in the reproductive stage. Otherwise, there may not be much success.
Why is it Necessary to Break the Demodex Life Cycle?
These microscopic creatures, although seemingly harmless, can cause a variety of problems if their numbers increase. Rosacea acne, a strange feeling of crawling on the skin, burning sensation, itching, blepharitis, dermatitis, and androgenic alopecia are some of the conditions that can be aggravated or even caused by these mites.
So, if you want to win the battle for survival, you have to get rid of these annoying mites, the parasites that have built their lives on your ancestor’s skins for thousands of years.
Most anti-Demodex treatments do not pay much attention to this protected ring of the mite’s life cycle- their eggs.
Traditional remedies eliminate the mites on the skin’s surface. But as they do not spend enough time or can not due to the medication’s side effects, newborn mites soon reach the skin’s surface and replace their ‘gone’ parents. So, the Demodex mite’s life continues through the next generation.
To give an example, one of the most common treatments for Demodex mites is tea tree oil. Although this essential oil in diluted form effectively kills mites, its long-term use can cause dryness and damage to the skin barrier, which provides more opportunities for Demodex to develop and grow. Consequently, the possibility of long-term use of tea tree oil – until all the larvae reach the surface and get killed – is prohibited. This issue is also the same for other standard Demodex mite treatments.
With this in mind, how can we break the life cycle of the Demodex at its most protected point?
