|carmspack||good basic food , with clean bio available protein is important for the immune system - you may want to look into some added omega 3|

|Altdeutscher||Also, what about goodwinol ointment?|

I like the shampoo and neem oil idea
I have been feeding him apples in addition to his food lately, and adding a probiotic for better absorption, hoping this increases his immune system.
He sometimes gets tuna fish also...

Demodex is not terribly itchy for the dog like sarcoptic mange is. I might go with the neem, but I would be careful treating it with anything until the vet comes back with the results.
Steroids will help the mites more than your dog.
Boosting the immune system is the only thing I would probably do. Demodex (localized) usually resolves itself in 4-6 weeks with or without treatment.

|marbury||Yep! Looks like demodex to me. Sorry, mate.|

Here's a couple photos. They're around both eyes and his lips. His right eye has a patch above and below it missing, and his left eye has only the eyelid hair missing. He has little bald spots on both sides of his lips.
The vet said the mite test would only take up to 2 days... but it's been 4 and no call back. I called on day 2 and they said the results hadn't come in yet...
The fungus test is what would take a couple weeks.
I've been trying the borax/hydrogen peroxide treatment on the bald spots to see if that does anything...
Sorry the pictures are really bad quality... but the one of his eye, you see his eyebrow, then to the right is a bald spot and underneath the eye.

Can you post a picture of the pup?
Hopefully someone will suggest something you can give to strengthen the immune system. Work from the inside out.
