Itchy skin parasite can be acquired even without any direct contact to rat mites or bird mites. You can get infected by these parasites that cause skin rashes that itch when cleaning your garage and get exposed to abandoned nest mice.
Another scenario that can infect you with parasites and could give you skin rashes that itch is by knocking an abandoned bird’s nest from the outside of your window and as it falls down you notice some dust spreading all over.
A day after cleaning out the rat or bird mites, you start to feel your skin itching relentlessly, like something is crawling underneath your skin. In an effort to relief the itch, you take a shower. However, within just minutes you notice that you already have skin rashes that itch.
After thinking of all the possible cause of the skin rashes that itch, you now then conclude that it came from the rat mites or birds nest and as you try to use all the possible medications in your medicine cabinet and yet nothing works for the skin rashes that itch, you rush out to the pharmacy.
You feel relief for a day or so but the skin rashes that itch already had a biting sensation leaving bite marks and more rashes. Because of the amount of efforts that you made in trying to relieve yourself from the skin rashes that itch you now go to your doctor. Your doctor prescribes Elimite and Lindane and you return home hoping for the best results. But then again, you feel the itch.
Going back to the doctor showing the bite marks and rashes that itch, you are now then referred to a dermatologist. The dermatologist prescribes an antibiotic and Diprolene but after taking them you only feel temporary relief for a few days and your condition continues to worsen.
Without all the suspicion that the bird nest or rat mites may have caused it, they actually were infested with skin parasites that caused skin rashes that itch. The vacuum that you used to remove the mice nest on that particular place actually spread them all over the garage and to your body. And when the birds nest fell, the dust that fell together with it had mites carrying parasites that came in contact to your skin thus spreading the parasites to your home.
By spreading to your skin and to your whole house, parasites also lay eggs in your bedding, shirt, towel and even your underwear and because of these parasites trying to bore into your skin, they bite you causing bite marks and rashes that itch.
Skin parasites are also known as Morgellons, Collembola or spring tails and Strongyloides stercoralis. These cases are hardly detectable and can be diagnosed by most physicians. But factors associated with skin parasites are also important questions that needs to be considered.
Like, how often do you bath? What lotions or skin cream you use? Although most doctors might not have these answers but one thing is certain, being aware of the possible breeding place for such parasites and avoiding them can help prevent infection.
