demodicosis

(dem'ō-di-kō'sis),
Folliculitis is primary sign; usually localized around eyes, mouth, and face but may become generalized in distribution. In veterinary medicine, certain breeds of dogs and cats are predisposed to the more severe generalized disease; infestation is seen also associated with otitis externa. Generalized demodicosis may be combined with furnuculosis and deep pyoderma as the parasite induces immunosuppression in the host.
