Sores on stomach and loosing hair

Hello!

My 1.5 year old Shepard/Lab has had these sores on her stomach for the past 6 months and we can't figure out what is wrong with her. We've switched her food, went on antibiotics, tried steroids and nothing is helping. It's only getting worse. They are open sores all over her stomach and inside her legs. Her hair is starting to fall out as well. We have also tried Benadryl incase it was an environmental allergy and it helped for the first few days but it never actually went away. We've been to the vet so many times.

Any help would be so appreciated!!

Does your dog have a funky BO smell?

I had a similar issue with a dog about the same age years ago. Vet kept saying allergies. It took quite some time, and a person on a dog forum named Callie, to discover that the problem was Demodex.
