Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 15 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.
So nice of you to take care of this dog. So, if she has skin lesions it could be due to mange, but it may also be just a bacterial or yeast infection. Your vet tomorrow will need to perform a skin scraping looking not just for mites, but also for bacteria/yeast. In the meantime, I recommend you not use all this that you listed above. Instead, use a good cleansing shampoo such as Selsun Blue (original). Bathe once today. Make sure not to get into her eyes. This really helps with bacterial infection and to cleanse the crusty material. You are welcome to apply topical antibiotic solution to any open sores, but do NOT apply any topical corticosteroids (e.g., hydrocortisone) because if this is mites, it may make it worse, depending on the type of mite. We must wait to determine if steroids can be used until after a skin scraping.
For itching it is safe to give an antihistamine such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) which you can purchase or people at a dose of 1 mg per pound every 12 hours. It may cause some drowsiness, though.
I am at a point I need to know what questions you have. We can continue our dialogue in this setting.
I hope that the information I provided has been helpful.
