Hi Tamara
White bull terriers often suffer from skin allergies. If it is an allergy then your options are:
1) treat for external parasites: flea's, lice e.t.c
2) washing with medicated shampoo's can assist in reducing the irritation - something like Virbac Episooth - follow the instructions carefully.
3) Antihistamine/Cortisone Tablets/Injection.
4) Supplement the diet with Essential Fatty Acids

If you are unsure contact your local vet for advise. They may also give you the option of diagnostics to determine the underlying cause.
