Is the dog on flea preventative?

Thank you then you are probably looking at allergies causing an itch and you can give Benadryl for this

I would also recommend that if you do not already do so, start adding some omega fatty acids to his food such as fish oil gel tabs or derm caps as this helps strengthen the skin and coat

Ok will do.
