I'm not very good at determining what such and such type of dry skin is, but it sounds like a fungal infection or some sort of allergy. (make sure you wait for Nancy or someone to come prove me wrong. :lol: ) While you are waiting, you can switch her onto liners, which can be fleece, flannel, vellux, etc. or just a pillow case. A bath would likely provide temporary relief - though if you are going to the vet within a few days, I wouldn't. If you wash off all the gunk they might have a hard time determining what it is.
