Dr Scarlett My 14 yr old, 14 lbs mix dog is scratching

Dr ScarlettMy 14 yr old, 14 lbs mix dog is scratching nonstop! Three days ago I realized she was infested fleas when she kept scratching her neck just below her ear. When I went to examine it I found the fleas and a an area that was about 3/4" by 1-1/2 of hair that had a thick scab on it. Her chin, looks like she has scratched it raw but there are these 2-3 mm what appears to be a scab dotting all over her neck. I have used a hydrocortisone spray but it doesn't seem to help.My question is Whst can I do for Willow that will make her nor comfortable? Have the fleas left a visitor behind?
