Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble. Where is she licking? I would start with some Benadryl (1mg/lb) this morning. It can reduce their urge to lick as well as calm her down some. If she is still licking like crazy and seems distressed, I would take her to the vet for a prescription medication to help her with this. Let me know if you have any other questions.If you could take a minute to give me a positive rating so that I can receive credit for this question, I would really appreciate it. Best of luck with everything!
