Mites? Need multibexpert advice. Household problem. I have skin visible symptoms and now has spread to scalp. Cat is scratching, biting & itching herself. Parrot has excessive white dander, is itching picking at feathers. Dermatologists cannot figure it
out. My 2 pets do not go outdoors. Ive been treated with permethrin & ivectrim. In Las Vegas & no fleas. Exotic Bird Vet had no ideas. Ive had my bird 30 years & never experienced this. My daughter is getting bites on her face. No visible bed bugs. Threw out
bed. Wash everything constantly on hot. Fogged apartment. How can my bird, cat, self & child all have same symptoms? What kind of mite spray is safe for parrots? Taking cat to vet today for skin scraping. This has been going on 7 to 8 months. I am concerned
we have an infestation. I live in the desert & I dont see any fleas. The parrot has not lost any feathers. I am affected the worst. I dont know how to identify problem & have been trying to control it. Pest Control companies said they dont deal with mites.
Ready to throw out more furniture. What is a safe dip for Parrot? Why wont flea drops cure cat? Also, since I have not been cured what avenues do I take for identifying problem & resolving this. The Parrot has a lot of white sand dander gathering around cage.
Only 2 bird Vets in town. Cat has small scabbed patch and biting and itching herself. Bird constantly grooming herself. I itch terribly with burrows & crusty patches, small itchy bumps, blisters. Daughter has what she thinks is small acne or mosquito bites.
I am sleeping on plastic shower curtain and blow up mattress. Our lives are upside down. I also spray my clothes with Permethrin spray from REI. My skin has white sand things if I pick them. Trying not to pick them. Scalp same. Scalp had many but am keeping
it more contolled with borax baths & borax shampoo mix. Black hard specks. One tiny black speck did smear blood in bathtub, when squished. I cannot see any small mite moving. Its puzzeling & cannot seem to get situation resolved. Ive tried ignoring it. Ive
treated it as bacterial, antifungal, eczema
, permethrin & ivectrim. Ive been on Doxycycline for 2months. It is worse at night but failed to be cured with Permethrin treatments. This is costing a lot of money. Thousands. I also wanted to say that I have tried
not treating it with harsh products. Using sensitive skin soaps & tried only extra moisture for a month. That did not work & it spread.
