If your dog is scratching and licking itself a lot it may have an allergy ....start by reading his food bag and see if it has corn or wheat in it (also his dog cookies) and if so try switching a better quality feed that has either rice or potato instead (check pet store as grocery store feed is usually junk food .Science diet food is loaded with corn and corn is the number allergen for dogs...along with wheat gluten.

You can also use a lidacaine spray or hydrocortisone spray made for dogs to help relieve itchyness .It may take at least 4 to 6 weeks after changing food to see a difference....Also ask your vet what feed he suggests to help with allergies ...
