Remedy for Dog With Dust Mite Allergies?

My Yorkie, Ziva has been tested at the vet and is allergic to dust mites of all things. Mainly she chews her feet; it has been suggested on website that she be given Benadryl; 1 mg per pound of her weight. I also read an article in a vet's magazine that said 1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil on her food might help. Does anyone have any views on this?
