i have a dog thats 13 months old and in the last 6 months has had mange or what i think is mange 3 times. All three times her belly and insides of her legs come out in heaps of lil bite looking bumbs then afew days later her skin will go all flaky and her hair falls out in little patches just on the inside of her legs. as soon as i dose her with advacote the flaky skin stops and in 2-3 weeks the patchy hair is growen back.
She is hardy ever round other dogs so i dont know where she is getting it from.
Every time she gets it i give her kennal a good clean out.
Just looking for any advice from anyone that has had a dog with the same problems .

Dog hasnt been to the vet but when i went to the vet to get some advacote all they said was if it worked last time then use it again , but just do it more offen.
The flaky skin doesnt turn in to scabs or anything and its not worrying the dog at all ,she doesnt scratch

Take the pooch to the vets so they can correctly diagnose the issue. You probably dont  treat your kids ailments via an internet forum do you ????
