Do people recover?

Need encouragement. I’m sure that we have a rodent or birdmite. I found three on me and caught one with tape. The vet said it looked like either a rodent or birdmite – she thinks bird. Does anyone recover from this? I read some posts by skf…the after affects are terrifying me as I have small children that are having to endure this as well. Please tell me people recover…

Have you joined the Yahoo Group called birdmitesorg yahoo group? Please join that group, and read some of the archives there. Yes, people recover. bird mites are more difficult because they last longer in the environment and tend to be more environmental, than scabies mites. The Cyonara and an insect growth regulator (Nylar, if they have it) seem to work well in the environment. You can purchase them from doyourownpestcontrol dot com.
People use all sorts of things. Some of them are:
Epsom Salts
Essential Oils
Roach Prufe
Boric Acid
Dawn Dishwashing Liquid
Coconut Oil
Neem Oil
Tea Tree Oil
Sardex Benzyl Benzoate
Benzemul (Benzyl Benzoate)
Diatomacious Earth (DE)
Olive Oil
Arm and Hammer Laundry Detergent
Rubbing Alcohol
Head and Shoulders in the blue bottle selenium sulfide 1%
Benzyl Peroxide
Hydrogen Peroxide
Sea Salt
