Ok since it seems many of us (including me) seem to have worries about the horse paste, or questions on if it really works and how I thought I would start a thread on it.

I called a feed store by me and it's 10.98 per thing and the dial for weight is for every 250lbs, now I'm willing to try this in case I do in fact have this mite, but my family is concerned that "people on a message board could say anything, you don't take animal medicine it could really hurt you."

Now most likely the people on here really did take it and are sincere and not trying to hurt people by trying to get them to take it, who has had experience with this horse paste and how dangerous would it be? There is medicine for animal and humans for a reason, I have a shitty immune system and want to make sure I'm safe if I try this, how much do you take and would it work as well as the human pills or better? And how often.

I don't want myself or anyone on here to get hurt taking this so the more information we can provide each other the better. Since a lot of good people on here swear by it and it cured them if it won't hurt we should all try.:)

I agree with you 100%! My family is concerned about me taking the ivermectin paste, too: they do not want me to. I told them I wouldn't; but like yourself, and the others in the other threads, we are backed-up into a corner, and don't feel we have any other choice but to take the risk...either that or continue with the torment of everyday living that we go through with the community and with ourselves. So, I have decided, from reading the threads and getting-up the gumption, that I AM going to try-out this paste once and for ALL when I receive it tomorrow. I will keep you posted as to how it works for me. God help me...

*(I must also add that the doctors have been telling me that I do NOT have scabies. There have been 5 doctors now that have checked me out, and will not give me Ivermectin from the Pharmacy.)It is my own belief and experiences that tell me something is wrong. That is why I am persuing this course of action. I could go into all the scabies "experiences" that I have had, but this is an ivermectin thread, and I will honor that. Thanks for letting me add this note.

Five MDs could be wrong or not. You mention family. Is anyone your close to showing symptoms? Because if you have scabies, well, it's very contagious.

Scabies has distinct visual symptoms in addition to the crawling and itching feelings. Classic Burrows, crusting, bumps in a track pattern, mite debris under the skin.

Don't waste your time with the horse paste. IMO the horse paste Ivermectin does not work. I used it for several months, used it often and at double the dose too.

When I started using Rx Ivermectin in addition to a scabicide topical the mites finally died. Scabicides and Ivermectin can be ordered online.

you make you own choices though...

Well, my mother denies that I even have scabies; so, if she has it now, she will not even acknowledge it as such. She thinks we all have "dry skin". But about the Scabicides and Ivermectin that can be ordered online...where? I really thought you needed a prescription for all that. I hadn't read anywhere where you can get ANY of it without one, or else none of us would be typing all of this stuff for thread after thread. If you know something we don't know, please share! I am getting this paste in today, and won't use it if you can give me better information!!!Thank you!

You can order stromectecol fron abc medics without a prescription. i received a order from them but did not take it. The pack i received had been opened in the back and the pills looked very old and crumbly.

I used 3 doses of human ivermectin and continued with 4 doses of horse paste. I couild not get anymore pills from a Doctor and still needed treatment. I also used 5% premethrin cream once a week while on ivermectin. If i had not used the hosre paste i still would have this.

I would have prefered to use human ivermectin but did what I felt was best. I have a healthy liver and use alcohol in moderation. I could not go on any longer with these mites. I was taking a chance with the horse paste but I'm glad i did it.



I'm not a Doctor . I've lost my mind from dealing with these mites.

It's all in the forums to be shared with anyone who is willing to look. We all share information. The Ordering Links forum has everything listed below. There is information on how to dose and use each product on the forums too. I have made your research a little easier for you. here you go.

Thanks, Kittycat & mkm! You both are a wealth of information! Me thinks, I will go with the paste, since I've already ordered it; it's actually not due to arrive until two days from now, it turns out:( But I can sit-tight for another two days, I suppose. Now, I saw that there was a site in mexico called "Medixpharmacy" that sells some sort of permethrin -Scabisan- I inquired about it:it's a little expensive-$30 for a 120ml tube. Probably not cheaper at the u.k. web-site. I'll check it out. I think those two courses of action will be good enough. I DO have 2little guinea pigs. I treated them with paste that I bravely bought prior to now, but only used on them before my mother found out that I had the paste; then abruptly took it away from me! But I did manage to give the little critters two doses(mind you, I looked-up on a RX web-site for guinea pigs what dose to give!)and they may need one more, but they will be ok. Especially by the time I get my first or second dose done with. Wheeeewww. If people only knew that all they have to do is get paste and permethrin from this mexican site or u.k. site and perhaps try topical benzyl benzoate(I am not "knocking that one",mkm) that they'll be alright, the world would be a better place for those tormented ones who suffer with this terrible curse of a thing.

Still waiting on the paste...just ordered some scabisan from "PanAmRx". It's located in mexico, like the other one I've mentioned. About the same cost-$30 for 60g tube. Ok, I guess. Will take about 2 weeks to get. The paste comes in tomorrow...finally! I went to the store today. Didn't feel comfortable being around people, as I feel I make them "itch". Can't WAIT for tomorrow! Are you around, mkm or kittycat? Or anyone? I'd like to know if there is anyone around to be there for me when I take this paste. And if anyone else is doing the same, I'd like to know! Or any correspondence would be cool! That's understandable, isn't it?(Sniffle...)

Did you read up on the possible side effects? headache, joint pain, sleeyness, increased heart rate.

If it makes you feel better. I'm a slim person and I took enough Ivercare Ivermectin horse paste 1.87% to treat about 4 horses. I'm alive and ok.
In theory, it should work but it did not work for me or my sister. I think it has something to do with how much is actually obsorbed into the skin.

and tell someone you know what your doing, posters are like fantoms in the night..........

Your probably going to need to order or get an Rx for some human grade Ivermectin tablets.

Ok,mkm... I see what you are saying. The paste may not work. I shouldn't get my hopes up...then how about this abcmedics.com ? Do you think I can get the prescription by refering a doctor?(You know what I mean) Did you get your prescription, no problem? Was it o.k.? Did you even use abcmedics.com ? I will get the human grade Ivermectin, if you think that is the way to go. However, I don't know what would make anyone want to make-up stories or lie about the effectiveness of horse paste-It seems like a waste of time. But anything is possible. I just think that the details of the threads about the horse paste and the intensity of the stories behind all the thoughts that go with the posters make it hard for me to believe that anyone of them could be making-up such masterminded evil plots to deceive naive readers such as myself and others...

It is 2:30pm EST. I HAD to eat something RIGHT before the UPS guy delivered the package with the Horse paste!(sarcastic)Now, I have to wait 2 hours(empty stomach)...tick, tock...I am anxious to take this stuff. I know I told you I would get the human Ivermectin, mkm; but, wouldn't you want to try the stuff out if it came to you and you didn't have anything else? Everyone is different. And SOMEONE out there did have it work for them. So, soon I will know. I'm scared. But will still do it. I'll be back soon...

Your best chances for killing mites is by using human grade Ivermectin and scabicides.

Of course no one made up stores.

I think 2 posters(Slomo and kittycat)who used the paste were cured, but they also used either BB topical or Permethrn 5% as part of their treatment. Maybe the paste works for some.

Good Luck

Hi Marshimn,

I felt the same way you did the first time I took the paste. I felt fine afterward. You will,too.

It turned out that I didn't have scabies but I wanted to respond to your question because you sound really concerned.

Thanks for your genuine concern, Anna. I really appreciate it. It's nice to know that someone cared. I know I got a little crazy, but you seemed to understand. Kudos to you for fessing-up!

You know,the paste didn't work that well and I DID feel fine, as you said. Maybe a waste of time, as mkm said, after all. Glad to hear you didn't have scabies and it sounds like you left it at that. Unfortuneatly, I have been told the same thing, but don't believe the doctors.(I have my reasons)Anyway, thanks again for your response. marshlmn

I had this for 6 months before i started treatment with ivermectin. You may have to do several treatments to see results. I did 3 treatments with human iver and continued with 4 treaments with horse paste. For the first month i did a dose about every 10 days and in Jan used it every 7 days . I did notice a little joint pain while on human and with the paste as well. Once i stopped using it my joint pain went away.

You also have to make sure you do laundry like crazy and never use anthing twice without washing. I hope you are the only one with this in your family. If not you may have a hard time getting rid of this due to reinfection.

Good Luck!!!

I'm really hoping that the 2 doses iaf ivermection I got from the derm today will work. Nothing but a headache as far as side effects so far.

I definitely won't stop the cleaning regimen. I tell myself everyday that I'm in a battle with an invisable enemy and it can ambush at any moment. LOL

I have a husband and 3 kids and so far they don't have it. That's good, Hubby's been sleeping in a different bed for 3-4 weeks now. I don't know that I'll ever be able to look at him as my husband again. Now all I see is a person that could possibly get it and re-infect me. I got it from a used tanning bed we bought and he was the first one in it. Scared shitless someone else is gonna get this crap.

I just find it completely unacceptable that Docs wont give the amount of medicine needed. I only got the ivermectin today because I think they realized I wasn't going to stop calling everyday asking/begging for some relief.

Make sure you go to the health food store, or the likes, and get really good vitamins - take with food - building your own immunities has helped a ton - Scrub with that cheap St Ivys Apricot Scrub - wash wash wash
