    It's highly likely there is something physically wrong with her. Take her to the vet.

    It's possible she is having a reaction to the anti-itch stuff. Have you tried giving her a bath to get rid of it? The itching of itself indicates that there may be something wrong that a topical med such as you used won't help.

    Definitely take her to the vet.

    I would contact your vet ASAP. Your dog could be having an adverse reaction to the anti-itch med you used.

    Could be allergies...my sheepdog is allergic to EVERYTHING..especially dust and every kind of grass imaginable. Have the vet test him and then if he does have allergies, you can give him the correct meds.

    Definitely a trip to the vet. And I'm not going to ask a personal question ... but if YOU (or anyone in the house) use a topical prescription medication PLEASE tell your vet what you use. Every time your pet touches/licks you she is receiving a dose of this medication.

    Also, is she spayed? If not, is she in season? If so, she might be going through a false pregnancy.

    She could also be having a reaction to the fireworks if you had any.

    Make note of when it started, how it started, what you did to alleviate and if any changes, her current diet and any meds you have her on. Collect a stool sample and bring that to vet as well.

    She may be alergic to something, need to take her to the vet to find out what it might be so it can be treated..
