I'm so sorry to hear of your girls skin problems, have this with our older boy who also has skin tags. I used Malaseb for years & fine if it resolves the problem but using long term found it very harsh, striping the coat & then I read somewhere that it should be applied with gloves!
Coal tar was fine with our youngest but when I used it on Lucas it really inflamed his skin further, he was tomato red & itching like mad & ended up giving him yet another bath, so good luck. I haven't tried DermOpt but will look out for it, Saleen is another option, which has certainly given him respite but buy it online as it's twice the price at our vets. Have you tried Hibiscrub for between washes, I know it can be harsh but if well diluted - only a couple of drops in a sink of water - its good for rinsing down when they come in wet from a walk. Sudocrem is great for immediate relief, a bit thick, but it takes the heat out & stops scratching for sometime. I wish you luck it has been an ongoing problem for years & I just wish there was some relief rather than vets saying 'what do you expect with a basset'. I'm interested in Franks comment that it's more prevalent in some lines, get very envious when I meet a Basset with no skin issues! Good luck, it's miserable for Margo.
I will also try baby shampo

My Basset Dudley has terrible skin allergies. He is even allergic to grass. The only thing that works is Atopica. Very expensive, but very effective!

Are skin problems common in Bassets? I never heard of it before.

From my experience, atopica didn't work for virgil. Very expensive and didnt even help a little with his constant itch/belly hot spot/allergic reaction he gots goin on.

Unfortunately yes. I read somewhere that 1 in 3 have skin probs. Seems to be the case with ours. Margot's came from her Mum's side (her breeder has since bred it out).
The Coal Tar shampoo is working a treat with her. Hibiscrub doesn't agree with her either - I think she's intolerant to chlorhexedine now. As far as creams I've found Dermacton works pretty well.

I feel lucky. Neither Maddie nor her parents or 5 siblings have any skin issues at all.

No basset skin issues here (so far... fingers crossed) however, as Sophie (shepherd) got older she had itching problems. Not real severe, but oatmeal shampoo and conditioner really seemed to help her. When it got real bad, I would soak her in the tub with the "People" oatmeal bath and it really seemed to help her. Granted, it was not a sever condition.
