Dog rash started as a few red spots that spread, now hair loss all over body

My dog has a rash that we suspect is mange. He has had this for a little over a month. The rash started out as a few spots that were red and caused Browser to lose hair.
We weren't sure what it was but he was chewing his way out of his pen so we thought he was getting scratched. Anyways, we bought a product called Banixx and used it for a while until it was gone. The spots started to spread and that is when we thought it may be mange.
Everyone was saying a home remedy was burnt motor oil and that it would clear it right up. We used that and it did not help at all.
Over time Browser (an English bulldog mixed with some other type of bulldog) started getting a little worse and then all of a sudden over last week he started losing hair all over almost overnight.
We ordered a product from a company called Naturasil that consist of a herbal shampoo a lime sulfur dip that you mix with the shampoo and some vitamins. We used that on Saturday and it seemed to help some but I am really worried. He looks bad and I am scared he is going to die or something.
I need to know what exactly it is he has and how to treat him so he gets well soon. Thank you!
