It sounds like your chihuahua is not very healthy and could have some sort of skin bacterial or fungal infection, possibly caused from dust mites. I would definitely recommend that you bring the chihuahua to the Vet to get checked out.

To deal the the skin infections at home, you can try getting a bottle Zymox Medicated Pet Shampoo and shampooing your dog regularly as instructed. I would also vacuum your house and carpets regularly and wash any and all dog bedding and pillows.
