That sounds like he may be having an allergic reaction- do you know how much he weighs? You can try benadryl. The dose is 1 mg per pound given orally every 8 hours. Make sure it is JUST benadryl (diphenhydramine) with no decongestants added (decongestants can be fatal to dogs). If that doesn't help within 45 minutes, it's going to be safest to get him to the nearest emergency clinic to have him evaluated. Good luck to you and Loky! - Dr. C

I've been giving him benadryl and giving him baths with baby shampoo and also putting hydrocortisone cream all over him . I've spent the last two days also pulling well over 50 to 60 seed tricks off him . He has stratched so much he maaakes himself bleed

Wow, that sounds terrible for him! It definitely sounds like you have tried everything you can at home. It may be time to try some systemic steroids to get his itching under control- I'd fine the nearest emergency clinic before he causes a secondary infection from self trauma. Good luck to you both!

Hello, my name is***** and I would like to help you with your question today. There are many things that can cause itching in dogs, especially young puppies. Many skin conditions look similar, but it would be helpful to submit a photo so I can see what the puppy looks like. Because the puppy came from a rough start, it is quite possible that what he is suffering from is a skin parasite -- such as a mite or ringworm. These are things that cannot be seen unless a sample of the surface skin is looked at under the microscope. They are terribly itchy and can spread to humans as well.

Because of the puppy's age, it would be best to have him looked at by a vet. Unfortunately we are not able to prescribe medication so beyond giving you information and taking a look at a photo, I will be limited on how I can help. If you have further questions though or can send a picture, I'd be happy to take a look.
