This form of dermatitis is caused by flea allergies. The dog will experience an allergic reaction if he is bitten by just a single flea. In addition to constant, severe itching, the dog may also lose his hair in the affected spots. It is also possible to develop hot spots, or areas of infection, in these areas.
Flea allergies are pretty easy to diagnose. Aside from excessive scratching, flea allergies are usually characterized by scabs and sore spots. If your dog has fleas, then there is a pretty high chance that it also has flea allergies.
Another one of the common types of dog allergies is flea allergies, where it is the fleas saliva, and not the flea itself, that causes the allergy. One of its symptoms is scratching, so if your dog is always scratching and, at the same time, his or her hair is falling, then he may have fleas in his body.
Always check your dogs body for fleas and if there are too many of it and its sucking the blood out of your dog, seek help from a professional groomer or veterinarian.
