Default Itching all the time

My little girl is 3 years old and spayed. A year or so ago she started itching. She itches all the time now. We live in an area of the US that has fleas year round plus we live in the country. She has chewed off all the hair she can reach and has some sores from all the scratching. We bathe her and that gives some relief. She has been sprayed, had flea and tick drops, natural remedies, and we even tried different dog foods, we treat the yard and the house for fleas. She gets vitamins and garlic pills every day. Right now taking her to the vet is not an option as I have had several health issues and there is no money for vets. Is there anyone out there who has had a similar problem and found anything that helped? Thank you!

oh my goodness,seems like you've done everything.What foods have you tried changing her too? Did your vet take a scrap skin sample ? Could it be mange ? Another thing springs to mind ,have you sprayed your carpets as fleas live and breed in them for years
