Does Ivomec cure common, red mange?
Question by Bekah: Does Ivomec cure common, red mange?
I know Ivomec “cures” regular mange, but does it also work with red mange that is transferable between animals and people?
Answer by zeb6219
Ivomectin is an excellent substance for getting rid of worms in cattle, heart worms in dogs and cats, and lice. Red mange is caused by a mite. Just call a vet and ask.

What is red mange?
Demodectic mange, also known as “red mange,” is an inflammatory parasitic disease of the skin. There are several names for red mange such as demo mange, demodex mange, demodectic mange, red fox mange and the seven year itch mange.
Red mange, if present, usually occurs within the first two years of life. Red mange can also occur later on in life and is also commonly known as “adult onset demodicosis.” Red mange is hereditary and is passed on via an animal’s genetics. Additionally Red mange is not passed on by direct contact and not considered contagious. For this reason, having mange is not a desirable trait and recommended that these pets are not breed. The pet in question should be surgically altered to prevent further spreading of this type of mange.
Treating red mange
It is also important to note that not all cases of red mange are readily and easily treated by using proven mange medicine and mange creams. Some cases can be very difficult to get rid of red mange if infection is present. This may make the treatment period longer, complicated and more costly. It is impossible to predict how each case will turn out so it is important to begin as soon as possible to decrease the risk of treatment failure.
