Skin problems / itching
About 12 weeks ago my little puppy starting nipping at herself constantly. It started with her front legs and now has moved up throughout her body and continues to make its way to her neck. We went to the vet who believed it to be a food allergy (She was on blue basic - salmon and potato) so we switched her food to Nature's Variety Instinct Salmon meal which is grain free and gluten free. That was about 6 weeks ago and no improvement whatsoever, in fact it has gotten worse.
She doesn't scratch herself in one particular area and it is never to where it bleeds or is raw.
She had a skin scraping and came back negative.
We've tried Benadryl and Zyrtec and they don't seem to do much at all for her.
We also give her oatmeal baths once every 2/3 weeks
Just frustrated for her and her coat! She had an amazing shiny black coat and now it's just patches of hair.
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
I've added some pictures, the first is how it started out and the last three have been taken within the last 2 days
