Can Mange give you infection like Lyme?

    I was just looking at my illness history and realized that just before I became ill, my dogs came down with Mange and it took a while before the vet correctly diagnosed it and treated them. Meanwhile, the mange mites were biting my husband and myself like crazy. Can mange mite transmit disease?

    My husband and I were definitely bitten but the mite can't reproduce and will just die under one's skin. At least that is what our vet and my doctor told me. They bit us on the ankles for the most part, as I remember. Our dogs were treated and eventually recovered but each night we had to vacum our house and furniture and change the bedding.What a pain in the neck. Anyway, just wondering if the mite carries any other disease or if this occurance was coincidental and not the cause of my CFS.
