For example a lot of vets will give parvo combo with rabies and maybe bordetella. That will lower the immune system and could cause an outbreak of demodex. That is the common on for younger dogs is multiple vaccines. It also can be hereditary, the weaker immune system and the mites take over. Your vet gave you the right treatment since it is only on her muzzle, should clear up in 4 weeks or so.
Thank you very much! I am hoping she can get bad to her normal thick coat as soon as possible I thought that to have manage the dog would need to itch all the time which Autumn rarely does and when she does it's at her collar not anywhere else... I've also never had a dog with it so I never knew what to really look for. I'm just glad we were able to catch it before it got bad!

Thinning hair on face??

Hello everyone! So I was looking for more information or suggestions before I jump back to the vet... autumn seems to be getting better in the face, but behind her ear is had a big scab when we went to the vet, it still hasn't cleared up because she keeps scratching at it... My fear though is now it looks like these red bumps are spreading from it that weren't there before.Name:  ImageUploadedByPG Free1359238937.355577.jpg

Size:  22.5 KB this is what it looked like about a week ago.. I was trying to keep it covered with some gauze and pet tape but the location is really hard to keep covered because it won't stay close enough to her ear... But it was starting to clear up, but after a couple times of holding her down to get it wrapped I gave up and not it has exploded to thisName:  ImageUploadedByPG Free1359239043.505176.jpg

Size:  31.2 KB I have been faithfully giving her the mess like the vet said and I even started salmon oil... I'm getting worried that this is part of the manage and is getting horrible. I don't want her to be in pain... HELP!?!?!

She may have an ear infection.
What do you feed her? You should look into immune boosters since she is taking harsh chemicals and Demodex flares up when the immune system is not working at it's best.
Apple Cider Vinegar with the mother, bovine colostrum, something along those lines might help. Just a few suggestions.

Ear infection would cause her to scratch the ear and make open sores like that.
My suggestion would be to find a grain free kibble probably a chicken free one too. Ear infections pop up regualarly when there is a food allergy. Ecko was getting them almost weekly for the first year we had him. We switched his kibble and it gor better. He's so bad though I just transitioned him to PMR and now he only gets them whent he seasons change. Between the thinning fur and the ear scratching, I think it's a safe bet that he has food allergies.
Bovine Collostrum can be purchased in powder form and added as a suppliment. It's a little pricey, cheaper to buy online then in health food stores though.
