I can't speak about the mange, as for the limp it could be a soft tissue injury, sore muscles, a sprain or a strain on a tendon or ligament. Rest your dog, meaning just take it out only for the bathroom and a 10 minute walk or less depending on how your dog is acting for a few days. If you had anti-inflamatories I'd give them too. If no improvement after say 3-4 days, I'd see your vet.
