Con: mild skin irritation, mild sulfur odor
Cost: $15 if you make your own lotion
$30 - 60 for pre-mixed, natural/organic creams

Around $15 from overseas, but around $400 in USA!
Pro: no irritation, effective in a couple clinical tests, inexpensive if you make your own, easy to use
Con: limited data from clinical testing, prescription version hard to get and wildly expensive, you're not supposed to make your own, shouldn’t take oral ivermectin or moxidectin at the same time

horse paste $1/dose (depending on your body weight, a single $5 package of horse paste supplies 5 to 10 doses)

Gel $4/dose (depending on your body weight, a single $20 package of gel supplies 5 to 8 doses)
Full disclosure: I have personally bought and used almost everything I mention on my web site. I search for good deals on good products for myself and tell you where to find them. If you buy from Amazon I do get a small commission, but you get the same price you would anyway. Most of the other stores I mention pay me nothing, but if they are convenient or have a good deal, I tell you.
Thanks for your support. I'm not getting rich doing this. When folks use the product links I can see they care. It is a fair amount of work keeping the site up. And of course you can email me anytime.
