There are several reasons for dogs to self-traumatize themselves.  Hot spots (moist dermatitis) are acute onset, itchy, painful areas of dermatitis.  Ectoparasites like fleas, ringworm, and mites can cause this behavior too.  Allergies are a common problem in dogs.  Your veterinarian will help diagnose the problem, treat it and any secondary infections present.
