Subject: Re: demodex

An afterthought. Shirley, from what I've been able to read, no one is
really sure if the demodex actually cause something like Bobby had on
his prepuce or if it just happened and they found it to be a great
place to live after it happened and moved in, in numbers. I didn't
want to leave you thinking they caused it as there seems to be some
argument in the medical community (regarding humans and acne rosacea)
as to whether the mites cause the rosacea or the rosacea just
attracts the mites. Thanks for bringing this to the list though, I
had a great time researching mites!
