How To Kill Mites
I need help please. I am the lucky new host for bird mites. House is being treated buy I cant seem to kill them on body, Please help! ?
Skin: There are many types of mites, knowing the type can be helpful. In general, select showering over bath to remove them. If you bathe you can add epsom or sea salt (as hot water alone usually doesn't kill them). Use of a loofah will help to remove them from skin. Coal tar can reduce itch. Menthol can help keep them off skin. Clean shower or spray w dilute bleach after use. ...Read more

Are bird mites contagious and can they live on human host? Is there a cream to use to kill them off your body?
Unlikely: Scabies mites do not survive more than 2-3 days away from human skin. Items such as bedding, clothing, and towels used by a person with scabies can be decontaminated by machine-washing in hot water and drying using the hot cycle or by dry-cleaning. Items that cannot be washed or dry-cleaned can be decontaminated by removing from any body contact for at least 72 hours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does saltwater kill scabies mites, when they aren't in the skin? For example if they are in a wetsuit?
Mites do not "like" salt water and in fact salt water baths are used to treat scabies!!!! I would, however, note that wet suits should be CLEANED with antibacterial, antiseptic, agents if they are going to be "shared"...If you use a wet suit regularly you should own your own!! My opinion only!

I have a question about scabies. Regardless of the effect to me/my skin and what I "should" do, will hot/boiling water kill the mites at all?
Easier way than that: You may not have scabies. It would be prudent to see a doctor for a proper diagnosis. There are topical as well oral medications that are far safer than trying to scald yourself with boiling water. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
We have been treated for scabies. Will Lysol kill the mites on hard surfaces? Also, once treated, how long do we need to change our bed linens daily?
Lysol not effective: Scabies is a tough condition to treat since it infects close contacts with varying symptoms and tends to recur from decontamination of untreated people or fomites (infected house hold items). For this reason, simultaneous treatment of all potentially infected personnel is recommended, along with laundering of linen, clothing and towels etc in hot water cycle with each treatment cycle. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
