Poor Eva

I am on my second dog with allergies and it's no fun for either one of us, so I feel your pain. I agree with taking her to a dermatologist, I never had good luck with regular vets treating allergies.

I would have her paws checked for yeast and bacteria, it looks a lot like what we are dealing with. See if your vet can get some Apoquel, it stopped Nikki's itching within a few hours but it's hard to get right now.

If she does have environmental allergies I would have her skin tested and start her on immunotherapy.
