Benzoyl Peroxide

Ailment: Dermodectic mange on Amstaff pup. Cure: Benzyl Peroxide 5% cream (Acne cream).

My 6mnth old Amstaff pup developed dermodectic mange. At first just one spot on the top of her head, then moved to her cheek, eye and nose. Tried the conventional dip routine - didn't work, mite population wasn't decreasing after two weeks and the dip made the pup very drowsy and nauseous. Looked on this site and found the 'Acne cream cure'. I bought some from my local chemist - called 'Benzac' here. Applied it to the first spot on top of the head every day for a week. After two weeks the hair started growing back. Have since applied to all the bald spots and after approx two weeks of treatment, the hair is growing back on all the patches. She is also on homeopathic sulphur and immune boosters, but looking great.

Thanks for the advice!

I have been fostering a yorkie terrirer he is about a yr old and when I picked him up they said he had dermodex. I had no clue what it was, but the poor little guy was a mess! he was completely bald and scabby.... I took him home with meds from vet and thought what the heck am I getting myself into. Well 4 months later.... I researched it and its a immune desease more then anything....I started bathing him regularly in oatmeal shampoo, giving hime lots of salmon and garlic and then I statrted giving him atratylodes rhizome 5gms daily also asian ginseng root, licorice root, and ginger root.... I took him for a check-up a month after I started all this with him and the vet couldn't believe the difference!He has hair again ....he has gained 12oz's and is doing much better I have also heard acne meds work it's a long road with this stuff but definitely working to boost the immune system is the key.


Apple Cider Vinegar, Yogurt, Local Honey

My lab/mix suffered from mange and candida 1 year ago and thru this website and others, I was able to stop his paw licking/biting, smelly ears, hot spots, rashes and hair loss on his body with 3 simple ingredients - unpasturized apple cider vinegar (1 tbs per meal) 2 tbs. plain yogurt with acidophillus in it and local , not store bought, honey. The honey can be applied to red areas on their body, I've used the yogurt in his ears to help heal and the ACV also works for fleas and digestive problems. After spending thousands of $$ at my Vet's, the cures were at my health food store. One other mention, switch your pets foods to a Candida free formula. You'll save $$ not visiting the Vet's office

Raw Meat and Bone Diet, MSM

I tried many times the borax and hydrogen peroxide on my very large german shephard. I found it helped but never cured and also was very difficult to apply to a large dog. Also i believe if I heal him from within it would be a long term solution. From what i read mange is due to w eakened system allowing the mites that are there anyway, but in very small numbers, to multiply into an infectious state.

By giving him all raw meat and bones and occasionally putting in shredded carrot and egg in his food, it helped. But what has finally done it is putting MSM powder in his food an drinking water. It is such a relief after struggling with this problem for around a year. i had seen two vets and got products sent from overseas. But the diet and the MSM is definitely the answer. It overall creates a healthier dog anyway. It is to me the only way, as washes and chemicals dont change the enviroment internally that let it happen initially

LET ME START BY SAYING I THINK THIS SITE IS THE BEST ONE OUT THERE ON THE INFO HI-WAY.. I had a sinus infection on and off for the last 15 years! I have tried everything and more from the regular md's including pain pills for years to get rid of that horrible head ache around my eyes and cheek bones. A couple of years ago while walking, I Met a man' selling a book about Cancer cures/prevention. he had published the book himself and i was interested in prevention, and what he had to say. He told me that all Humans and animals would benefit greatly by drinking and BATHING in ORGANIC APPLE CIDER VINEGAR WITH THE MOTHERS... I found this to be very interesting and decided to do my own experiments and research, I have a dog who was beginning to get mange on her hind knee it was red and irritaded the vets wanted to give her some horrible medicine and she was clearly not feeling well.I held him over the sink and poured the Vinegar strait from the bottle over her infected knee she squirmed a bit probably from the stinging but a second later that smart pooch put her leg on my chest so i could at it better (as though she knew i was gonna fix her) after the first time it was 80% better and in two days that mange was gone! so I took a bath using the vinegar i probably used a quart as I buy it in gallon jugs ...I could not believe how I felt after one bath..."Reborn" is the word that comes to mind. after that one bath I began to take it orally, in the morning or anytime i had heart burn another ailment of mine...The ACV has worked wonders,also it took My skin tags off and made my skin and hair so much brighter.i also only use coconut oil for moisturizing and a small amount in my hair for dryness...

I rescued two puppies after Hurricane Wilma and they had a severe case of mange. I took them to my vet and after a series of shots they did get better, however, my entirer family ended up with scabies. Needless to say my female dog got out and became pregnant during her first heat and she delivered a litter of seven pups, not to long ago. Once again my whole family contracted scabies from the puppies after they were weaned from their mother. We have been back and forth to the vet, tried revelution, boric acide, hydro, everything. The one thing I found that cured my dogs, myself and family, was sulfur. We did not have to wait weeks, this occured in days. They felt a million times better after the first shampoo, their hair started to grow back within a couple of days. Sulfur shampoo, soap, spray, and stright powder sulfur is available at most grocery stores for $3 for shampoo, $2 for a bar of soap, these are in the shampoo section for humans, if you do not see sulfur products, ask you pharmisit and they will lead you right to them. Sulfur is also a great cure for human nail fungus. Blessings,

Sulfur We always used powder sulfur for dog mange. Mix with any oil and apply. Will stop the itching at once and a cure in a few days. Never once did it fail to work. Powder sulfur costs about 2 bucks and will last awhile. Simple and affective.

We have cured two family dogs with a paste of flowers of sulfur powder (bought at feed store) and vegetable oil. These were separate occurrences, years apart). Each time they had been diagnosed by the vet, and we had used the prescribed medication without results. When we used the sulfer & oil treatment the results were fast and complete.

Glover' S Shampoo and Coniditioner, Sulphur

On my dog I had tried everything available except for Ivermectin. I decided To Shampoo my dog with Glover's Medicated Shampoo, and I brushed all the scabs and flakes off. I then greased him with the Glover's dandruf oil for scalp and hair. It's available in liquid. I first noticed the next day he was flea free. Three days later I repeated my steps, shampoo with the Glover's medicated shamoo, brush away flakes and scabs and oil him with the liquid medicine for scalp and hair. Well, the fleas are gone, and the mange is leaving. Hair has started growing back in areas and he isn't scratching all night. This is an enexpensive treatment and it works. ALso, I went to the feed store and got some sulfur and put it out in the backyard where the dog is. SO far so good
