Are you going to take the tablets or horsepaste? If you are taking the Stromectol Ivermectin tablets you should be taking double the weight based dose every three days while rubbing on Advantix 2 Blue with 45% Permethrin everyday during a period of eight days. The Advantix should stay on your skin for 8-14 hours then you need to take a daily bleach bath. What is your age and weight?

The 8 day period is not correct. You need to cover the life cycle of the mite. The mites go through stages and develop their nervous system after 14 days. This is when you dose again with ivermectin. You can go more often like every 4 days but for no more than about 3 weeks.

45% permethrin is too toxic. Should be diluted down to about 6% with an essential oil.

Do not wash your skin after these mids for about 24 to 30 hours.

Everyone should talk to your doctor first and do whatever your doctor says. Many docs prescribe about 3 doses of elimite permethrin 5% to be applied once every 7 days. The ivermectin is a plus, and for many, a necessity. Do a search on this forum for ivermectin. Many threads will appear. Study and research everything before you actually make a decision about what direction you will take.

Mitewarrior's information is not always correct. She claims to be cured in 8 days. Due to the life cycle of the sarcoptic mite, this is probably not possible.

There is no need to take ivermectin at twice the dosage. The regular dosage of 200 micrograms per kilogram of body weight is sufficient, along with a good topical. You could go as high as 250 micrograms per kilo of body weight. But, not necessary, especially if you have a light case of this and are healthy. Many factors here.

Mitewarrior is a he! For more than six months I tried all the oils, soups, supplements, medical and home remedies and found them to be useless. What worked for me was a double dose of Stromectol every three days while rubbing on undiluted Advantix 2 Blue with 45% Permethrin for eight days. I also took daily bleach baths. And I was cured in eight (8) days! After that I repeated the same treatment regime for another twelve (12) days. Doctors are clueless when it comes to curing the resistant Scabies of 2012. Their protocols are more than ten years old.

These doses are not maximum doses. Your Scabies mites may be resistant to low ivermectin doses. When I had Scabies the doctor prescribed 12 mg which is the old dose from 20 years ago that is not based on weight. The weight dose may also not be high enough. I was cured after I started double the weight based dose in combination with full body topical Permethrin. I started with Permethrin 5% Cream but it simply was not strong enough so I moved on to Advantix II Blue with 45% Permethrin. I hope this helps.
My question to you is how do you know what cured you at the end? Ivermectin alone cured Andrea. By logic 4 dosis would b enough even if you reinfect your self ?
If one take two showers a day , clean properly this bug lives 5 days? So if you do 4 doses you cover pretty much everything? Idk just a thought. Maybe many people is living post scabies and don't know.

After 8-days of treating myself with double the weight based oral dose of ivermectin in combination with the daily full body topical Advantix I no longer experienced crawling or biting sensations on the skin. I repeated this same treatment regime another 12-days and was sure I was completely cured. I also took daily bleach baths with borax. It worked for me and it has worked for many others.

Help me please. My Dr prescribed ivermectin tabs 3mg. One a week for three weeks. Still had them. Gave me more to take 1 immediately, 1 4 days later, another 4 days after that, then 1 more after another four days. Still have them. From this site I think the dosage is to low. There is a post a few up from December downtown who says 200 MICROGRAMS per kilograms. I live in the US, aren't pills measured in MILLIGRAMS? I weigh 140 lbs which I believe is about 63 kg. how many 3 Mg pills should I be taking at a time? How often? My Dr is treating me like i'm crazy. She called a shrink who called me at home! Please help

Yes, you should be fine. Lots of people on lyme forums are taking this medication. Some of them are taking 36mg a day for 2 weeks then doing three other medicines after that (not all at the same time).

I'm not suggesting you do this, but just telling you what many n the lyme forums are doing. Important that you do some detoxing too due to the die-off. Colonics is a good thing to do twice a week. Coffee enemas are good too—organic coffee only. Google for instructions. Taking chlorella is good for detoxing as well. Drinking lemon juice daily is a good idea too. Detox is VERY important otherwise you'll get real sick from the die-off.

Do you have parasites or are you treating scabbies?

She was referring to taking the 1% injectible ORALLY. You mix it with juice and take it on an empty stomach. Now, I have been on a website where a lady that does animal rescue will give the pets the injectible ivermectin on their backs between their shoulder blades, so I suppose you could even use the injectible applied to the skin. The injections are given to the animals SUBCUTANEOUSLY. That is NOT in the muscle. You pull up the pets skin and inject right under the skin and NOT IN THE MUSCLE. This medicine is just as effective taken orally.

Hi Andrea!!!
Thanks for the info! Do you know why the anilamls are only given a weekly dose of Ivermectin and MDs like Dr. Klinghardt, etc. give 4 doses/day for 2 weeks?
Also, do you know if injections of Ivermectin are more effective than oral? Injections would bypass the liver...
Thanks!!!

Ivermectin Horse Paste

#60 Aug 5, 2012
My family and I have been fighting scabies for months now. I have spent THOUSANDS of dollars for cleaning products, high water bills from washing laundry constantaly, extra showers and every type of home remedy I found online. FINALLY came across the horse paste. Funny how I was brought up around horses and it never dawned on me, guess you think it's for horses and not humans so you never think of it. Now that I know it's the same medicine, I went and bought two tubes of Durvet apple flaver just like Jennifer has said two post ago. We have only taken one dose this past Friday, it's Sunday now, so I will let everyone know how it goes. The Durvet horse paste is 1.87% ivermectin compared to the 1% I've read other people talking about. The ONLY thing we worry about is we have cats and would like to give them some paste also. But with the average weight of our cats being 7 pounds, we are very concerned about not being able to portion out the paste that little. If anyone has any help please let me know.

Has this worked for anyone taking it orally?I've done perm twice a week apart and it didn't work.I also tried the bleach bath and it just drove them to my ears,nose and eyes.I put on the 10% sulfur ointment I got from a Mexican grocery store last night and woke up with a insane looking rash on my upper inner thighs,the bends behind my knees and the bends of my arms.I dunno if this is a reaction to the sulfur or the perm or if they have gotten worse.The rash is severe and seems to have dry skin on top.I have been using 10% sulfur soap too and leaving it on overnight and found it very drying that's why i tried the ointment.

I showered this morning to wash the cream off and the rash stung real bad but turned slightly less red.I'm really thinking about trying to horse paste.I weigh 205 lbs do you think the 250 lb dose would be enough?Also how often should this be taken and for how long?Any input is greatly appreciated.

The perm cream that was prescribed was $50 and I just can't afford to keep doing that.The sulfur is a cheap option but not sure if this rash is a reaction to it or not so dunno how many options I have left.I do feel activity in my ears and nose though and have had this for 6+ months and it got really bad when they treated me in jail for a fungal infection with antibiotics the situation just blew up after that.I never felt the pin pricks or crawling sensation until after I used the perm that's whats weird.

do you swallow the dose or inject it? i'm confused, but really appreciate the detailed posting as i've had it for about 11 months. i went to my nurse, urgent care , demotoligists and a contageous disease specialist and no help. i finally was able to diagnose i based on a web search and returned to my nurse. i've dosed and dose with the pymithrin with little success [blueinput demo]a[blueinput demo]nd am so suffering. let me know please

It now seems to be well established that Ivermectin is pretty harmless as drugs go. I read all these posts about doctors second guessing and denying scabies, refusing treatment, etc. If in doubt, skip the damned doctor, dose yourself with Ivermectin and see what happens. If the condition resolves, you saved yourself a bundle of money and a lot of frustration. If it does not resolve, you have lost nothing and can still go to the doctor.

Thanks to the Internet, there is now a wealth of information out there to the careful researcher. the days of "doctors as gods" are, thankfully, gone. In the not too distant past, doctors killed more people than they saved. They bled people, they administered mercury for venereal diseases, etc. Don't fall victim to the arrogance of a medical practitioner.

You can swallow or subcutaneously inject the dose. But with potential for inadvertently dirty needle, etc., swallowing seems to be the best route.

By the way, with those "injection bottles" in which the injectable Ivermectin comes, you can pry up the aluminum around the rubber with a knife and tear it off with a pair of needle nosed pliers. Then you will see that that rubber membrane is a nice, easily removed plug. You can now skip the needle altogether and just use a needleless syringe to pull out the proper dose and shoot it right down your throat. Very easy.
