Pharmacys do it yourself medicines or home remedys are useful if you surely know what it is. Or if there are not ANY veterinary around. Better some help than none help at all. But always when if doubt - check with a veterinary! Always.
What is bothering me here is the pus. This is not any good. - and mites usually dont give pus by themselves!. The pus may perhaps be because she get a little sore because of the scratching. But she may also scratch because sore... And infected sores are not to play with. This i why I do recommend a veterinary check here.
Although it is probable no crash emergency with emergency wet, you can go to your usual vet. But do it ASAP...
