Some ivermectin would be all the dog needs.
If it's sarcoptic mange, all he'd need is ivermectin too - can you not foster him?

Dogs usually don't just get "yeast infections", they are secondary to another problem like allergies or mange.
The body then overproduces oil which contributes to the yeast on the skin.
It's a multipronged problem which means it takes a multipronged approach to healing, including shampoos, ivermectin (if it's mange) and/or special foods and diet. Ask them to get the dog Natural Balance duck/potato or venison/sweet potato in case it's food allergies.
Also use Ketoconazole shampoo (found in the dandruff shampoo section of Walmart).
