Ok, so;

Ivermectin is a relatively new, Nobel winning medicine that can be used to treat a variety of conditions with living organisms, such as mites in the case of type 2 rosacea (papulopustular - the one with pimples, scabs, pustules, white heads and generally really unsightly and painful when left untreated).

In most cases, it's very effective and clears the face within few weeks (I strongly recommend going on a course of helping antibiotics from your doctor for that, as it helps with a 'die off', a slight to bigger but very temporary worsening of the pimples before it gets better. Not all people have that, but it's fairly common.)

For human use, it's usually prescribed as Soolantra; a topical cream. In most of the world where it's available, it's an affordable to cheap and sometimes even fully paid for medicine, and if your doctor doesn't know about it, mentioning it sometimes helps with its prescription.

I don't know where you're based, but if you're in USA, the Soolantra bit can get annoying and superexpensive due to the way that healthcare is set up to milk people instead of help, however I have seen people getting it with some pharmacy help for as low as 50$ a tube.

If that's not an option, either because you truly are in USA and your doc is a jerk, or because like me you live somewhere where it simply isn't imported and known, you can opt for 'horse paste'.

Horse paste is a colloquial term for horse dewormers; a toothpaste-like or gel-like substance meant for horses to ingest, with twice the strength of Soolantra (some people dilute it with moisturisers for usage to tone it down to Soolantra's level, some people use it full; in most cases it's a once a day application on the entirety of the face.)

You can get your hands on a dewormer in most farm stores or on Amazon, one like this for example: - you always want to make sure it's pure Ivermectin and not a mix, and it's for horses as the strength is easy to work with, either in full or halved.

One tube lasted me for about 1-2 weeks when applied daily; I now have a clear face with only occasional pustules so I apply it about once a week at this point.


I am not a doctor.

I use it without problems for nearly a year now.

Horse paste is not tested for human use. It is twice the strength of the tested human dose, and so far nobody reported any problems. One thing some doctors fear with this is developing a resistance, similar to how antibiotic overuse works.

Another thing is the fact that a lot of these come in apple flavour, so there's a concern that storing them too long out once opened diminishes their effectiveness and could even lead to spoiling; in which case I recommend not stockpiling on them but buying them as you go, maybe a month-worth of supply.

The substance is generally safe for topical use as it's super mild - horses are sensitive so they can't ingest just anything.

Ivermectin is what finally cured me: 2 doses a week (back to back days) for 3 weeks.

Unless you have crusted scabies (which it doesn't sound like you do), there won't be many scabies living in your environment, you don't need to throw away clothes, linen, etc, just wash and dry them on high heat each time you do the treatment. You can save time by just bagging clothes in garbage bags for 7 days if you don't need to wear them again immediately as the mites cannot live off your body for very long.

My rosacea is now mostly controlled but when I was actively treating it, I used Durvet (Apple flavored) horse paste, purchased on Amazon. It's actually more of a gel that a paste, so it spreads more easily if the skin is wet. I would saturate a cotton round with micellar water, add 3 drops of tea tree oil (which is also good for rosacea), and wipe my whole face, including under the jawline. With it still dripping wet, I'd then apply the smallest amount of horse paste possible that would cover my whole face and jawline, including my nose and eyebrows.

It takes a while to soak in, and it's best used at night. As such, I'd make it a point to do it at least 30-60 minutes before bedtime.

I just got done emailing someone about this and this is what my husband and I used for the cream. It's basically Permethrin 10% sold as an insecticide. I'm just gonna paste my nodes I used - Feel free to read the reviews on these products too because a lot of people use this stuff for human scabies:

  • Topical Treatment - Permethrin. Apply all over your body and let sit for 8-10 hours once every 7 days. It's a good idea to do this before bed. You buy a soap dispenser at target/wherever and fill half with normal lotion and half with the Permethrin 10%. The normal doctor's prescription has it at 5%, but this 10% works fine, just don't abuse it more than your regular once-every-7-day-use or you'll get a slight bumpy rash. When combined, the lotion and texture is a little more pungent, runny/clearish than the cream from the pharmacy, but they do the same thing. It's weird, but you should feel minty fresh all over the next day. This product is also highly toxic to cats so don't let them eat or lick it. This med kills scabies mites dwelling on/in the skin, but not the eggs.--->

    And for anyone who need a source for the ivermectin paste,

  • Internal Treatment - Ivermectin: Measured by bodyweight, consume the proper amount of this paste once every 7 days with food. On how to measure the dose, watch the youtube link below. (A dose detail: When the gel is pushed out of the tube at the measurement which matches your bodyweight, it's a good idea just to cut the gel off at that point with your finger and take it by hand to make sure you get only the dose you need. Also, my husband and I rounded up so I did a 150lbs dose and he a 200lbs dose even though we are about 25-30lbs under that. We felt fine.) This med kills scabies mites dwelling on/in the skin and will kill any eggs which hatch.--->>
  • When to Start: Do not start the Permethrin and Ivermectin in the same day because it wouldn't make sense to. Eggs take 2-3 days to hatch so it's best to start these two meds about 3 days apart to kill off the 2nd wave each week. Maintain this schedule throughout the week(s) you take it.
