Sounds like fleas. Bathe in dawn dish soap. When was she dewormed last?

Stand your puppy up and take a WHITE paper plate and place it under the rear end area and brush with your fingers around her butt and potty area vigorously . Then wet your finger and rub it across the plate. If the dark dots turn red then it's fleas. If not it's allergies.

I agree with the others to check for fleas first! If it's not fleas, I have been told growing the outer coat (guard hairs) can be itchy. Steel went through a short period when I picked him up at 10-11 weeks where he was really itchy, but didn't have fleas. I bathed him in some oatmeal dog soap and it seemed to help.

Are you feeding her cow's milk? Cow's milk doesn't agree with all pups.

A little puppy playing is fun. He nibbles you as he nibbles his brothers or his mother during a game phase . But be careful, you have to know how to put an end to it. Your dog must learn that the bite hurts and that he should not play with his jaw.

To educate him, he should not be beaten when he bites you, he might feel assaulted and he would develop aggressive behavior himself. It's the opposite of what you want to do. The best thing is to do like when playing with other dogs: you utter a sharp cry to signify your pain and you stop the game. Repeat this operation regularly.
