Can someone infested who red poultry mites are feeding on transmit the mites to another person or environment?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? What seems to make the symptoms worse or better?

It is my daughter she has been taking Ivermectin at high does thar seems to help

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I want to know i it is safe for her to sleep in our home - could the mites spread to the rest of the family or to our home? She lives away from home in an apartment that became so infested she has moved with her roommate into a hotel We are going to a doctor tomorrow but should she stay in a hotel or can she sleep here?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
