You should bring her to a vet NOW if she has open sores, you don't want them to get infected.
It could be yeast which is common with dogs that have allergies, is she on a STRICT hypo-allergenic food diet and nothing else?
Could also be fleas and/or worms. Are you using a good flea/worm control product every month, winter included?
How dry is the air in your house? This would not be the cause of such a severe sounding problem but using a humidifier will help.
Do not give her anything or put anything on her skin or bathe her! It is definitely time to go to the vet as your dog sounds like she is very uncomfortable.
Good luck and let us know how she is doing.
