Living in harmony

I mentioned before in my very first posting that I chose "For External Use Only" as a compromise anthem of really little meaning to me at the time.

On hindsight, it was indeed a serendipitous beginning, especially so now that I am dabbling into all things cutaneous. Perhaps it is not too late to declare that I am pursuing my (other) dream of practicing dermatology as a specialisation after years of general practice (gentle readers, wish me well).

Which brings us swiftly in close proximity to a particular arthropod that I found disturbing but enormously fascinating. We've all heard of scabies but spare a thought for the humble unassuming demodex, a mite of the Demodicidae family who has been hitching a ride on us probably since time immemorial.

They feed on our dead skin, live in our hair follicles, crawl around at night looking for a mate... WHAT THE %#$@?!!



Definitely puts a different spin to the phrase "Aliens live among us"!
