We all have tiny microscopic creatures living on our bodies--it's normal and they cause us no harm. There are also tiny mites, like scabies an chiggers, that can bite us, and cause problems. Animals can transfer some things to us: chiggers, mites, fleas, etc. But I know of none that will cover our posessions, our bodies, and eat our clothing. If these are microscopic, how can she see them? Could it be possible that your daughter has an obsssive-compulsive disorder and is afraid of normal bacteria, germs, and things we all live with? This is hardly uncommon or unheard of.
