Ear Mites

So it looks like one of my horses has ear mites- she is really irritated about her ears, tosses her head a lot, and they're white/yellow flaky on the inside. From the pictures I've seen it looks like ear mites, which is definitely gross.
Anyway! The poor girl is definitely not happy, but I have no idea how to get rid of them, or what product to use. She's due for a deworming, is there a dewormer that works for other parasites? I just don't know what to do...

I used mineral oil for the mites, but SWAT for the bugs that bite the top of the ears. I don't think a de-wormer can touch ear mites.
