Labored breathing and skin lesions

Our dog Trooper is 5 month old shepard mix (from the pound) and is short of breath. He also has skin lesions on his groin, stomach and mouth that look pimples untill they pop and a scab forms. We took him to the vet and he said that he had mange and they dipped him. He had an allergic reaction and and edema of his stomach and polydipsia. This is the second reaction he has had to a drug. He also had a really strange allergic reaction to deoxycycline when he was on it for pneumonia when he was a puppy. He was on other antibiotics (baytril on double the recommended dose) for a couple of months when he had this pneumonia. He als o has really dirty ears all of the time! I am beginning to suspect an autoimmune disease and was wondering if anyone else has had similar symptoms in their pet? And if so, what did you do?
