Background: Papulopustular dermatoses such as acne, rosacea, perioral dermatitis, demodicosis folliculitis, due to their high prevalence in the population, are a very urgent problem. Taking into account the localization of these dermatoses on the face and socially active age of patients, the consequence of disease development can be a significant reduction in the quality of life - social and professional contacts are disrupted, neurotic disorders and depression often develop. Aim. To conduct a sociological study on the level of awareness of the disease demodecosis among the population, methods of infection and prevention of the disease. Methodology: A cross-sectional study was conducted among the population of Semey to assess awareness of demodicosis. The study was conducted by electronic questionnaire. A total of 128 residents between the ages of 18 and 50 were interviewed. The questionnaire included questions about knowledge of the disease, probability of infection, effectiveness of preventive measures, readiness to observe them, and preferred sources of information. An integrated assessment was made and the priorities of individual sources of information were determined with the calculation of their specific weight. Results: According to the results of the survey, only 37.5% (n=48) of the respondents had heard of the disease demodicosis. Only 22.4% (n=28) of the surveyed population have information about preventive measures, of which 42.4% (n=28) adhere to preventive methods. The respondents indicated the following sources of information about the disease: visits to a cosmetologist and dermatologist, as well as Internet resources. Conclusion: A sociological survey of Semey residents on the awareness of the prevalence of demodicosis disease indicates a low level of knowledge and prevention measures. It is necessary to more persistently bring to the attention of citizens information about effective measures to prevent this dermatological disease.
