Dear Lisa.

Demodectic mange does not. Sarcoptic mange of pets can cause transient problems in humans. There are are different species of Sarcoptic mites and they prefer their correct host but can hop onto the wrong host for a while.

If you suspect you have mange/scabies, please visit your doctor immediately to start treatment.

Best regards,
