Yorkie - dry spots on skin

I have a 2 year old yorkie. She has small dry spots on her skin which must be itching terribly, because she scratches alot. These dry spots are only on her head, neck and her throut. What can I do, or should I take her to the vet rather.

Dear Michelle

Can be Sarcoptic mange that responds very well to a dip re Amitix/Ectodex. You can dip her weekly 2-3 times and see if the scratching gets less.
