JRT skin irritation

Question:

Our 1 1/2 yr. old Jack Russell female has developed a serious itching problem. She is scratching herself everywhere to the point of irritating her skin raw. We took her to the Vet who thinks it is probably an allergy but we can't determine to what. This started suddenly in the middle of August. No change to food or environment that we can think of. We tried Benadryl but no improvement. The vet switched us to another antihistamine but she is still scratching. Does anyone have any ideas or similiar circumstances to relate to us? Thanks, June
