I can talk online .I would like to know how to mix sulfer Usp with what ingredients to apply to dogs skin
Expert:  Dr B replied 10 months ago.

I would not use sulfur to treat mange.....this is a very outdated way to treat mange.....your need to ask your vet to fill a prescription for oral ivermectin at the correct dose and treat your dog with that until 2 negative skin scrapes...this is the very best way to treat mange. No one uses sulfur baths or dips anymore.....please let me know if you have additional questions as I can check back with you tomorrow night. I hope this helps you. Sincerely, DRB
