    Rosacea and Demodicosis: Little-known Diagnostic Signs and Symptoms
    Fabienne M.N. Forton, Viviane De Maertelaer
    Papulopustular rosacea and demodicosis are common facial skin conditions that can be difficult to diagnose clinically. In addition to well-known signs, such as vascular signs, papules and ocular involvement, we show that other signs and symptoms (discreet facial follicular scales, dandruff, folliculitis on the scalp, facial or scalp pruritus) are also frequently present. Their detection should encourage dermatologists to perform a Demodex density test to ensure correct diagnosis.
