|I have 18 years of memories of rescue dogs from the southren states to call from.....Even if the skin scraping is negative it is most likely Sarcoptic Mange.
The mites cause intense itching, worse in the morning and early evening. Hair loss and pimple like "bug bites" and "skip tracks" were the mites are irritating the skin, usually the belly, inside legs, neck under the collar, bridge of nose.
Sarcoptic mange mites can be transfered to humans and surfaces as well as other animals. I got them from Pamela. Drove me mad with itching. We did skin scrapings more than once and she kept coming up negative, but they were there, so Vet treated on symptoms. Thank-goodness!
Revolution and Salicylic acid shampoo were the treatment.
