I Need Your Help . . . A Bacterial Infection Irritates My Dog!

Meet Lucy. The Basset Hound mix has the trademark droopy ears but she also has another not-so-adorable addition (or, in this case, loss) – her hair. The pooch has been experiencing extreme skin irritation and itching over the past year.
Her owner writes:

The vet has diagnosed Lucy's problem as bacterial but the shampoos and pills I have been given to help the problem have not worked. We give her allergy pills from the vet both morning and night hoping this will help her, yet she continues to bite and scratch. This problem is only on her underside and legs – she is losing hair and I know she is just miserable! Has anyone had this problem with their dog or can you offer suggestions to help her feel better?
