Hi Marie,
This is Taylor, Ask A Pet Pro’s blog administrator. Sorry to hear about your new one’s problems.

Have you had your pup checked by a vet yet for the cause of the itching? There can be several reasons for the itching, including a yeast infection, and one of those is caused by mites that create a condition called demodectic mange. Here is a picture of that:

I’d rule that out first as the treatment will differ from treatment for a yeast infection.

Here are some links for more information on demodectic mange:
