longus which live in the glands of hair follicles and Demodex folliculorum
brevis which reside in sebaceous (oil) glands connected to hair follicles.
Researchers identified four lineages of microscopic Demodex folliculorum
mites living on the foreheads, cheeks and noses of 70 volunteers.
Though the etiology of rosacea is not fully understood, immune system dysfunction, inflammatory reaction to cutaneous microorganisms, Demodex folliculorum

2) Other causes or correlative factors that have been associated with rosacea are the dysregulation of the cutaneous innate immunity, overgrowth of the Demodex folliculorum
