Hello, my name is***** and I will help you.
But I am going to ask you a few questions first.
Did you originally see actual scratches? As in a line of broken skin?
Dose this itch? Does he scratch?
The reason that i asked about the scratches was because Shibas have such dense hair that it would be difficult to see scratches unless they were large.
And scratches should have healed by now.
Then we have to consider insect bites. But these usually have an immediate painful response.
The next most common cause of licking the feet would be an allergy.
It could be food, fleas, grasses.and many other things.
Is he just licking or is he chewing?
All feet or just the front ones?
Is he rubbing around the eyes?
Look at his belly. Is it red also?
