I don't mean to be rude But its called time to go to the vet. Home remedys DO NOT WORK. And can make your dogs skin worse. DO NOT put any think on your dog with out going to the vet. You might can call your vet and he or she might can tell you what you can do or just sell you so meds or a shampoo.

Your dog needs to be seen by a vet. If you are worried about the cost, find an animal charity who will see your dog for a nominal fee.
In the UK, we have something called the PDSA, which treats animals for a fraction the cost of a normal vet.
Don't use over-the-counter remedies without a diagnosis. This could make matters worse.
Your dog could be suffering from anything from a flea allergy to cancer, so do the right thing, and take her to a vet for a proper examination.

The vet can give you meds/ creams/ antibotics for it. Sounds like a hot spot alot of females get this. Usually in the rump area.
It is best to go to vet doesn't cost much for cream or antibotics:)

My dog Danny was a outside dog. he would lose the hair on the last half of his back and growing area every summer. I tried different meds, nothing helped, his yard mate died and now he stays inside on hot days under the ac like us, he hasn't lost not one hair sense.It was the summer heat.

Using over the counter products We use isn't a good idea, plus Your pup could be allergic to medicine. Take your pup to a Vet for sure. could be allergic to Flea's, Food, even dust. And do call around too as some Vets will waive the Office call, if your a 1st timer. So be discourged but do see a Vet asap.
Hope you find one soon and do ask for Help, alot of Vets understand more then you think.
