First I would take her to the Vet and get a skin scrape done and blood work done to see if there is something else going on.

Maybe she is allergic to something in the kibble you are feeding, some dogs are allergic to chicken. I would switch to a higher quality kibble made without chicken.

I would give her salmon oil daily and I would give her a multivitamin plus pill daily that will also help with her immune system, coat and joints.

I would also stop using the dawn soap on her and get a sensitive skin shampoo made specifically for dogs.
