OK, so I am worried now.... I have been treating my chickens for scaly leg mites for a couple of weeks... then I noticed my budgies also have scaly leg mites... AARRHH.. So I was treating them too.. very time consuming catching and treating 15 budgies plus 20 chickens.. rubbing Vaseline on their legs, beaks and feet!!! I started to notice small raised spots.. like a very small mosquito bites appearing on my thub and finger.... now nearly very finger got them. Just 1 or 2 each. These bumps changed over the last couple of days to dry, peeling flaky skin. They are sore 'ish' and sensitive if I touch them. There are still a few bumps too. The problems is at the level where my nails grow.. but not on the nail.. to either side... on the sides of my fingers and thumbs. I have convinced myself I have caught the scaly mites.... is that at all possible? If so, maybe I need to Vaseline my fingers over night.
