You rolled in WHAT?

My dog rolled in human feces last night. The smell is clinging to her fur. What will get the smell out?

I'm looking for a magic bullet here, like tomato juice on a dog that has been sprayed by a skunk. The smell is without a doubt the most putrid thing to have ever graced my olfactory. It didn't just smell like crap. It had this sour, inhuman smell that invaded my nostrils like a solvent. The only thing I can compare it to is old person BO.
So I'm thinking someone in the hive mind has worked in nursing/medical/septic business and has a secret ingredient that will take that smell out of her hair. It seems to get worse when she is wet, not unlike the way skunk scent will come back in a wet dog.
When we first brought her home you couldn't get within ten feet of her. Now that we've repeatedly washed her the smell is only there when she is within arm's reach. I'm sure it will dissipate with time, but I need help now!
And yes, I am absolutely sure all the nasty matter is gone. It is just the clinging smell that remains.
Also, should I be immediately concerned about having come into contact with the nastiness, however briefly, on bare skin?
