Localized Demodex

I recently adopted a three month old Corgi mix puppy. She had two hairless spots on her head which I thought were just from scrapping with the other pups at the rescue. The vet tested and she has confirmed mites. Has anyone dealt with "mild" or localized demodex? How long did you wait to see if the puppy could fight off the mites on their own before starting medicated treatment? If you waited, did you try to use any supplements to increase the immune system?

I'd appreciate advice from someone who has experience - thanks!
