Is there a connection with scabies and demodex mites? Any theories or ideas are greatly appreciated.

How about scabies and blepharitis?

RRRR, do you have a microscope & have you ever scraped the tickling areas of your face? Demodex is one of the known causes of blepharitis, and I wonder if scabies can cause an unhealthy population explosion of demodex.

I'd had both demodex and scabies. Demodex goes away as soon as the animals are gone from the house. Scabies is another story.

I have a 60-100x pocket microscope but I've never seen anything through it

You have to put the scabies in oil and you will see them swim. And you have to have a high powered microscope. I've did it before.

Does anyone know about the best (not too expensive) microscope to attach and view on the monitor of computer, my computer being a MacBook, not very big.
Would it be hard to make them connect and what magnification would be enough to show the parasite demodex , even the small puppies and the eggs left in the skin pores.?
I must do something fast, I can't stand the scratching. It leaves me no peace especially at night.
I plan to try everything to kill them, but I must find out what will. So I would try it watching the reaction of the parasites on my computers with a microscope.
I will make notes and pass them on here to the people who have demodex .
Is there a simpler microscope? I think it must need 100X to 400X, but I never done it.
