Answer by  JoanieMcLarney (25)

Veterinarians treating this condition will generally use a well known and trusted medicine such as Ivermectin given by mouth. Depending on the severity of the case, it can require more than one treatment. To ease discomfort, a diluted betadine solution can be applied to affected areas of skin giving temporary relief.
