I know a few people have gotten remedies for mange on this board..do a search in the health section or hold out a few and someone more knowledgeable than myself can help give you tips...

Hope you can find some relief :( ..

Fox mange? Here we call them differently: demodex mange or scarcoptic mange (scabies). You said he smells like sweat - is it a sour smell, like infection? If so, it may be scabies. That's pretty easily treated with ivermectin injections. In the US, you can buy the drug online for about $50. See if you can get ahold of it, and I will find out the dosage for you.

So is the mange gone? If so, it could be that he still has secondary infections. Put him on some antibiotics for the sores, and give him a little time for the hair to grow back.

Hope that helps.
