I have some questions :
Is there a scent in the laundry detergent that you use? I'd second an extra rinse load, in hot water, with as little soap as possible, I use about 1/8 the recommended amount.
Yes there is a scent in the detergent I will start using 1/3 of what I was before and hot rinse twice
How long did you try the new diet? Did you offer any other foods while you were doing this? In order to rule out food allergies you must feed ONLY one type of food with treats of the same ingredient or no treats for AT LEAST 3 months.
I had him on Duck and potato for 5 months nothing changed
I'd also suggest vacuuming your house as much as possible.
I vacuum 3 times a week guess I will start everyday now see how that works out.
For some temporary relief, you could try soaking his feet in epsom salt baths a couple times/day, just make sure that you dry them very well after, as damp skin promotes yeast growth.
Give the Ketaconazole another week or so to start working, it needs some time to work it's way out to the skin. He needs to take it for quite a long time, how long will he be on it for?
I had him on it for a few weeks, I have about a weeks worth left over from my last vet visit I just started him, can I buy the stuff online anywhere and how long can he beon it? I have 200mg tabs he takes 1 1/2 a day.
Often with dogs with allergies it is simply a game of controlling the symptoms. There NEVER is a cure, but there are many ways to control the body's reaction or soothe the affects of the allergies.
I would do a search on the Internet on Atopy and Food allergies in dogs, any questions on what you find, feel free to ask

A few people here have successfully treated mange with diet, harsh medications for months on end are not required for mange. Your regular vet probably won't go for that route, but it can and does work, it's just not "conventional"
