Can Birds Cause Itching In Humans?
Tonight so at home my husband is very fond of keeping birds there are a lot of birds and the cages are stored on 2 floors while we live downstairs. Lately, our family has contracted itching in the skin and my child has scabies. What could be the cause is that there are many birds in the house?
Hello Savira, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Scabies or scabies is a skin disease due to the life of Sarcoptes scabiei mites that are on the inner surface of the skin where the skin mites live, lay eggs and eat the remnants of dead skin that is on the surface of the skin. Because the activity of these mites is more active at night so the itching will be felt at night. Scabies is a contagious disease especially if it makes physical contact with sufferers.
Indeed, in general animals also have mites on their bodies, but scurvy is not transmitted from infected animals, but will only be infected if they make physical contact with infected humans. Although contagious, physical contact is limited to shaking hands or hugging very small causing mites to move and spread, because mites take longer to crawl from one person to another. Risk factors for having scabies occur in people who have weak immunity, such as:
children in the elderly in someone with HIV / AIDS who has cancer or is undergoing chemotherapy doing an organ transplant To reduce or minimize the transmission of scabies, you need to:
avoid contact with infected people or objects such as exchanging clothes or sleeping in the same mattress washing items that may be infected using hot water routinely cleaning the house because thick crust from the skin that may have mites in it can be routinely cleaned or vacuumed from the floor of your house we can convey, hopefully useful explanations from us.
