Sir,

We welcome and appreciate the queries pointed out by the esteemed readers. We will like to comment on them one by one in a sequential manner. [1]

Although many species of demodex exist and may be found in both human and other animals, two species Demodex folliculorum and Demodex. brevis are typical for humans and so obligatory for humans.

Female demodex are slightly shorter and rounder than male demodex, which may not always be appreciated. The measurements in the figure are just arbitrary.

The demodex mite is generally considered as an ecto-parasite only. [2]
