Dog getting sores all over body

I need help trying to figure why the reason is and a solution.
First, I took her to the vet letting them know the issue (she's getting sores, mostly on her back and lower on her belly) They took her for a blood test to check on everything else, which came out fine. But they said they can't really check on the sores that she's getting bc it seems like they're healing up on their own slowly, they just said to watch out for ant hills when i'm outside walking her, so they couldn't do much. It's been a couple weeks now and even though it kinda seems that some on her back are healing, others appear on her back. The ones on her lower belly look worse, more like red-ish sores, those are not healing. I bought her an antiparasitic shampoo few days ago and have used that twice now, I know it's too soon to know if it that works or not but wanted to know also if someone had an opinion on that and if thought to work? Please if someone has experienced something related to this, let me know your opinions and advice. If there's any details that I have left out, let me know. Btw, she's still playing around plenty and wagging her tail, her mood has not changed at all, she's always a very happy dog.

Question Microscope? Skin scraping / stain / slide, examine with binocular specs, etc.

i'd see another vet - or return to the same one, whichever - & ask them to do a skin-scraping, & put it under the 'scope.

Sarcoptes, Demodex, ringworm [75% of Ringworm fungi fluoresce under UV light / a blacklight in a dark room], yeast explosion, contact dermatitis, ______ ?? - who knows, it could be any of those, or something else.

U need more data - only a vet can provide that. A vet-dermatologist might be an excellent idea; U can ask the GP vet for a referral, or a derm-specialist at a university Vet-College might help, using this case as a teaching tool, which could save $$$.
