It really depends on what kind of birds you have nesting. Birds can carry over 60 types of diseases and parasites. I assume that you have cleared the area of the bird nest already... It is quite possible that the itching is caused by bird mites but there are other things that birds can carry including bed bugs, etc. It is concerning that the nest is in such close proximity to the air conditioner and as such salmonellosis is a big concern and could be the cause of the breathing disorder your husband is experiencing. The "worms" in the stool would not be caused by either of these disease processes. However, birds do carry worms that can infect a human host. You need to do a follow-up with your regular doctor and tell them everything you did here and they can check for parasites, etc and prescribe what will best cure that particular parasite as each one needs a little different treatment. Permethrin is great for mites, fleas, etc but may not be the right choice depending on what type of infestation you have.
