Help for Dog with Skin Problems

Our dog has some sort of skin problem which is causing her skin to flake and give off an oder. I bought some over the counter skin-problem shampoo and have been washing her with this, but it hasn't worked yet. (I'm washed her with it about three times). I'm newly single and finances are tight right now, I don't see how I can afford to take her to the vet! Does any one have any home remedies or suggestions?

Psoriasis or Eczema

I have these patches of dry skin on my ankles. It's either Psoriasis or Eczema, I have been to the different doctors and they say both.

"Watching" a Mole

As you know, I have a lot of health anxiety.. I had my 6 month skin check (history of one non-melanoma skin cancer and one removal with atypical cells) and the dermatologist said that she wanted me to "keep an eye" on one spot on my chest (a flat brown mole). This of course has sent me into panic and I went pouring through old photo albums to look at it and I discovered that although I have had it for at least 13 years or more, it got larger and darker after the birth of my youngest about 6 years ago. It has looked just like it does now...
