Is this mange??

About a week ago she was exposed to another dog with mange... a few days later this bump appeared. The first day it just looked like a large bug bite, the second day it began to get red and swell and now the sides of it are starting to crust but the middle of it is still raw so we aren't sure that if it's getting better or worse.

That's not mange like I have ever seen. You need to go to the vet.

It looks like a bacterial infection to me
Staph or strep possibly
I would take her to the vet ASAP
I hope she is better soon

Could be a lot of possible infections/inflammations, but to me looks most like a dermatophyte (skin fungus, aka ringworm). Certainly NOT typical of any form of mange, though.
