I've actually heard Dawn dishwashing liquid (the regular blue kind) will kill the fleas so you don't have to buy the medicated kind.

Thanks everyone. From the petmd link on fleas and the description that definitely sounds like the issue.
I guess I know what I'm doing tonight...

|Midnight12||I would check for fleas. They are not as common in Colorado, but this year my vet said she has seen more cases. My girl got them twice this year, and I have never had to deal with this before. Of course, if she would quit catching squirrels it might help lol|

You'll need to hit this on all bases if true. Flea shampoo her, then put some topical from the vet between her shoulders. Vacuum and flea bomb the house.
If fleas you need to get on it NOW cause there are fleas jumping off her and laying eggs in the house that will hatch and get everywhere. It's not just about what is walking around on your dog.

I'm in Denver, Colorado.
I will look for a spray like that, thank you. May try some coconut oil too. It would be great for her if it was just a bad itch or dry skin as opposed to more problems.
