Hair loss around both eyes and ears. Itching, biting, and licking everywhere. Small scabs

Customer Question

Hair loss around both eyes and ears. Itching, biting, and licking everywhere. Small scabs on stomach, behind ears, and arm pits.
Problem arose either at a dog playgroup or after receiving a shot that same day (vet doesn't think the shot had anything to do with it). No problems were noticed before 4 months old. They're now 11 months old.
He's the brother to my other female Boston Terrier. Darby (female) has no problems what so ever.
