Once fleas are ruled out as a cause of the ithchiness, you may want to consider adding fish oil to the dog's diet. My pittie had very dry, itchy skin when I adopted her, and would get occasional hot spots. Putting her on a high quality diet and adding fish oil daily has completely cleared up her issues. I use the Welactin brand which can be purchased over the counter at most vet offices. Fish oil can work wonders for keeping the skin properly hydrated and can (supposedly) have other benefits as well such as joint health, heart health, etc.
