    Mange in humans is known as “scabies”.

    Mange is transmittable to humans, so if your dog has it, I would take them to the vet as sson as possible…especially if you have kids in the house. The vet will do a skin scraping and look at it under the microscope to diagnose it. If your dog is very itchy, has bald spots with red inflammed skin and you haven’t seen any fleas on the skin, you may want to suspect mange. I would have the dog checked out.

    There are 2 types of mange – sarcoptic and demodectic. Demodex can not be spread to people, but sarcoptic can be spread to people. It is a mite that lives on the skin. Looking at a dog, you can see hair loss, typically around the ears, or around the tail. It is usually symmetrical. The only way you can tell which type it is would be to have a vet check under a microscope.
