AAARRRRGGGGGHHHH! I have used f10 for weeks and it still does not clear! in fact, its only getting MORE. Are there any other solutions to treat mange quickly without it being too harmful on the horse? Oh and yes i am 100% sure that its mange.

There is some stuff you can get to treat it , and it's you only have to spray it on once ..the crap smells nasty but it works . I used it on one of my goats and it cleared up in no time the top of my head I can't think of the name , but I will go out to the barn in the morning and see what it is and let ya know!

I have dealt with mange twice in my life - both times they were auction horses.

One I cleared up with some stuff I bought at the Co-op, the other horse required the vet's help - who left me with strict instructions and a container of the most horrid-smelling liquid I had ever smelled

Add me to "call the vet"

I used lemon juice on my dog and gave him foods that'd help fight skin inflammation and boost his immune system and it cleared up within the week. I dunno if that'd work on a horse, or if they have the same type of mange... but if you are desperate it's worth researching a bit more.

I couldn't find it in the barn...but I do know I got it from the co-op , but if you've been trying stuff and it's not working call a vet and see what they would recommend . They may have some stuff in their office

You need a Lyme sulfur product. I'd do a benzoyl peroxide based shampoo and then use Lyme sulfur to soak it.

We used Benzyl Benzoate on two dogs that got mange from foxes - worked really well but I would speak to a vet first
The mites feed off the horse so treating with an oral thing like Ivermectin wormers will also help knock them back
Is it possible your horse is reinfecting - you might need to use something to totally de-bug your barn, blankets etc and remove all bedding as they can survive for about 10 days off the 'host' animal.
