    What Are you washing her with? Might try a hypo allergenic wash or a medicated wash

    I am also wondering what she is eating? Food and treats? What types?

    Yes definately wondering what food she's eating ? and then we always have wonderful success with a apple cider vinegar mix, on our boys thru the years, and it works almost overnight... Any chance of a flea bite ? Our last Bully, would break out in hives at just one bite, when we took our walks.. then when he broke out ~ it seemed to lead to the itching and so forth, but he was allergic to many things..
