{9:6} Therefore, the Lord accomplished this word the next day. And all the animals of the Egyptians died. Yet truly, of the animals of the sons of Israel, nothing at all perished.
{9:7} And Pharaoh sent to see; neither was there anything dead of those things that Israel possessed. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not release the people.

The Pharaoh cared about himself, so as long as nothing happened to him, his loved ones or his personal belongings, he could care less about anyone or anything else.

{9:8} And the Lord said to Moses and to Aaron: “Take handfuls of ashes from the oven, and let Moses sprinkle it into the air, in the sight of Pharaoh.
{9:9} And let there be dust upon all the land of Egypt. For there will be sores and swelling pustules on men and on beasts, throughout the entire land of Egypt.”
{9:10} And they took ashes from the oven, and they stood in the sight of Pharaoh, and Moses sprinkled it in the air. And there came sores with swelling pustules on men and on beasts.

God could have done this through an Angel (as he will do on another event Rev 16:2). All belongs to God (Deut 10:14).

Sekhmet was the goddess of disease control or healing. Could this goddess do something? No.

{9:11} Neither could the sorcerers stand in the sight of Moses, because of the sores that were on them and on all the land of Egypt.

At this point, it is clear that none of the "gods" from Egypt could do something against the power of Almighty God.
