Itchy baby

Our almost 6 week old baby it super itchy ( I am guessing). She loves for me to scratch her and rubs and scratches herself on anything that is hard and still. She has rubbed hair off of her rump, head( not just from nursing), and knocked some hide off of her shoulder from rubbing on something. I brush her and she loves it but should I be looking for an underlying problem. I wipe her with fly spray and she isn't shedding.

Maybe she's just itchy??? Lol

If she's scratching her tail, it could be worms. Otherwise, bathtime maybe. Some seem to be more itchy than others. Could be fly bites even with the fly spray. Those things aren't sure fire.

I don't see any whelts or marks from bites or feel any. I don't think it is worms because she rubs her head and neck too. Who knows...she is a silly thing.

Maybe an allergic reaction? Rolled in poison ivy? Needs a bath? Not sure. :\

Nope no poison ivy. She probably could use a bath but I am not sure I am ready to tackle that just yet. May be the fly spray I put on her.

Maybe, try switching brands and seeing how that goes. Maybe she rolled in some kind of grass she's allergic to?

Ahhh if we only had grass...we are in west texas not much grass here. I will try switching for her. I was using phyranha(sp)

I wonder if there's something formulated for foals that you could get her... for sensitive skin?

Hmmm off to google. Thanks for making me think :) Finals this week are making my brain mush and I can't think about anything else it seems!
