Itchy Dog is Losing Its` Hair

I have an 11 year old golden retriever that has been itchy and losing its hair for almost two years.I am a my wits end as to a correct diagnosis.First my vet thought it was allergies,then mange,now hypothyroidism.The pills for hypothyroidism seemed to be working on the hair loss but not the itchy skin.She has been on prednisone several times and I am hearing horror stories about the side effects,especially weakening the immune system.I wish I could get an answer to my poor girl`s problem.Any suggestions?Thanks,Tim.
