    So, tonight was the night that the flock got wormed.
    Being the slightly stubborn person that I am I insisted on doing it MY way, drawing the ivermectin pour-on up into a needle-less syringe from a plastic dixie cup. DH kept insisting that I should take the needled syringe with the (total of) 10 cc's of the iver. and draw 1/2 cc at a time up from that using the needle-less syringe.
    Doing it my way I went to put the extra I had drawn up back in the dixie cup and it splashed all over my face. Had my glasses on, so none in my eyes.
    So, anyone ever wormed themselves with ivermectin pour-on or am I the only idiot wife that won't listen to her DH?
    Will this take care of my tapeworm or will I start moo-ing soon? [​IMG]

    As for whether you are the only one worming yourself with ivermectin I have no clue. I will assure you that you are in no way unique for not listening to your husband.

    I have read on here occ. about someone doing something similar and talking about how fast it soaked in their skin. I hope you will be ok. You could call poison control and see if it is hazardous enough to warrant a Dr. trip. Gloria jean

    I've gotten ivermectin on my skin before worming horses, and my instructor has absorbed mass quantities over her lifetime.

    You'll be fine.

    Also, it is apparently used for humans as well for a variety of things.

    Wikipedia also had an interesting article on it.
