My Dog has Mange

When I got my 2 month old pitbull terrier, he developed demodectic mange.  It took 2 months to clear, then about a month later, he was covered in hives.  I  gave him Benadryl, washed all his bedding, and cleaned-up the yard.  My vet gave him antibiotics,cortisone and after months the final antibiotics worked.  But a few weeks later, I noticed what appeared to be a round bloody scrape on his head, I used hydrogenperoxide and antibiotic cream, but strangely, he developed these small bumps that turned into scabs then hair fell out where bumps had developed all the way down his neck and side of face. again, another round of cephalexin and cortisone. He cannot tolerate anymore antibiotics or cortisone and I don't know what to do to control these skin problems, he gets salmon/rice food very good,and a few dog treats, so he has the best diet for allergy-related dogs.  He is now one years old, and still recovering from those weird bumps that appeared after the lesion on skin.   My vet just says its a secondary infection, I say my vet doesn't know what he is doing. Please help.

Dermodectic Mange

My little Shitzu-Pug has Dermodectic Mange around her eye lids. She has had a positive test from her vet. They gave her a medicine called Invermectin and she had a TERRIBLE reaction to it.  So today the vet wrote us another prescription for Milbermycin or Interceptor. I see that your Defendex product could possibly be a substitution if we wanted to go with a natural medicine but she does have mites all around the eye lids. Would the shampoo probably eliminate all the mites or do you not recommend getting it in or near her eyes? -Gena-
