Dear Lyn

Skin problems can be frustrating to control/cure. In addition, it can be expensive to diagnose/treat. The problem could be due to external parasites, allergy (food, contact etc) or even atopy etc. You need to discuss the matter with your vet and ask him for a protocol by which you can investigate and treat the skin. You need to get the problem at least under control as self mutilation can lead to further problems.

Kind regards
