Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. The drooling could be a sign of nausea. Have you noticed any vomiting? I would start some Pepcid (0.25mg/lb) every 12 hours for the drooing. For the itching and shaking her head, these could be a sign of allergies. I would start her on some Benadryl (1mg/lb) every 12 hours. If it doesn't clear up in a couple of days, I would take her in to the vet for a check up. The Benadryl might also help her relax because it is a mild sedative as well.

She is not vomiting at all

Ok, good. Sometimes when their skin is irritated it makes them uncomfortable and they will drool more than usual. The Pepcid can help with the drooling most of the time.
