My dog was bitten by a stray dog about 3-4 months back above his tail, help?

My dog was bitten by a stray dog about 3-4 months back above his tail . He was given suitable shots by the vet . Later on we had noticed that he????s been scratching that area quite vigorously . Also there was a lot of shedding of skin and hair . The vet again instructed us to clean the area with betadine and apply spectrozole 3-4 times a day ???€?which we did . This was about 3-4 months and that area is still the same .I also see small eruptions and rashes .Also twice I have seen small black thin insect coming out of that area . I am once again applying the same betadine & spectrozole which has stopped his scratching but not dryness and hairball . I plan to take my dog to the vet tomorrow once more but just wanted your opinion ???€?about what are we dealing with here ?

I use ivermectine locally on the wond if there is any chance of maggots etc. It works wonders!

actuallty rana ivermectine is actually for scabies but not for common cut and wound for wound use betadine or bactroban or t-bact because the stop bacteria to grow which is present on skin. scabies is due to different organisms

I know but it works very well on maggots and it is not only for scabies- it is a for all external and internal parasites- NOT recommended to inject in dogs.

Is important to note that there are yearly reports of deaths of cattle, horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, etc. from the topical, oral and intravenous use of ivermectin (two of which are included here) (FDA) (FDA) . It is not known, but expected, that these deaths may be the result of incorrect dose or use.
In Dogs specially Poms and other small breeds slightly higher dosages have shown cases of heart attach

Thanks guys , He was infested with Fleas and had severe allergy from their saliva which lead to advance case of dermatitis . The vet treated him just fine . He is so much happier and itch-free !

Itching so severe that dog is scratching and chewing itself. Even the source of itching is unclear.
