Why are you bathing every week? I hope it is not with a flea shampoo, because you are overpesticiding your dog severely. Only bathe when your dog really smells. You are stripping all of the natural oils out of her skin and making this worse. Then, bathe with a shampoo for sensitive skin and a separate conditioner. Get her dipped separately for fleas by the groomer, and you will see an improvement. ^_^
