Mange is a skin disease caused by parasitic mites, some of which can be transmitted to humans. Mange usually causes severe itching, hair loss and the formation of scabs and lesions due to the scratching of the infected areas. Parasitic mites that cause mange to embed themselves in the skin or hair follicles. There are two types of mange, Demodectic Mange, and Sarcoptic Mange.
Demodectic Mange is also called Demodex or red mange and is caused by sensitivity to and overpopulation of the Demodex canismite in the skin and hair follicles. All dogs are born with the demuxed canis mite. When the immune system is compromised and the number of mites inhabiting the hair follicles and skin is excessive, it leads to skin issues, infections and hair loss.
Sarcoptic Mange is a highly contagious infestation of Sarcoptes scabiei canis which is a burrowing mite. This mite burrows through the skin, laying eggs and leaving waste causing intense itching and irritation. Sarcoptic mange can be transmitted to humans and other animals when there is prolonged contact with an infested animal.
